Andy Dolce, founder and chairman of Dolce Hotels and Resorts, has won the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) first annual Global Distinguished Service Award.
“This award was established to recognize the contribution of one member annually who has made a sustained commitment and contribution to IACC and the conference centre industry at the global level and across chapters,” says Neil Pompan, IACC Global president.
From 1993 to 1994, Dolce served as president of IACC. During that time, he established chapters in Europe, Asia Pacific and North America.
In late 1995, Dolce and other members signed the first documents for IACC-Global and set the stage for the first Global board of directors.
