Podcast, Vacancy News Today and publisher of novacancynews.com.  Haussman has been named #1 Hospitality Social Media Influencer and #1 Hospitality Podcast, attracting the biggest names in the hospitality industry.  Melchiorri is also known for hosting Hotel Impossible: Five Star Secrets, Hotel Impossible Showdown and Extreme Hotels programs.

Both Haussman and Melchiorri keep the hospitality, hotel and tourism industry informed and engaged, and have helped organizations and companies maneuver through the last two years of industry crisis due to Covid 19.  They will receive Skal USA’s Industry Leader Award, the organization’s highest award, during the NASC Congress Gala Dinner, for their unwavering support to the industry during the pandemic. Receiving the prestigious award before them were Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association and Christopher Thompson, President and CEO of Brand USA.

The Skal NASC Congress is attended each year by Skal Delegates from Skal Clubs in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  The annual conference features speakers on travel, tourism and hospitality trends, a Skal USA business meeting, networking and best industry practice sessions, social events and optional destination tours.
