Priory Banquet Staff Appearance on "Consumer Sense" Television Show

I had the privilege of appearing on the television show "Consumer $ense" recently with our Grand Hall general manager Walt Czapliewicz, wedding sales specialist Heather McDowell, and Gene Lucente, our corporate and group sales manager. The show, hosted by Audrey Guskey, Ph.D of Duquesne University, focused on wedding reception trends and helpful money saving tips for brides. Dr. Guskey is a professor of marketing at Duquesne, and, in addition to hosting her own show, is a frequent guest on many Pittsburgh talk and news shows on radio and television. Consumer $ense airs on WPXI, our local NBC affiliate, and PCNC, its cable news sister station.

My role was to give some background on our facility and our business philosophy, and Walt and Heather talked about industry trends (Hint: in are chair covers and specialty linens, as well as candy tables).

You can view the program here.

Dr. Guskey was a very gracious host, and make Walt, Heather and Gene feel right at home on camera. We're pleased to have had a chance to chat with her.
