The Ramada Oasis Hotel & Convention Center in Springfield was recently awarded the best “Sales Team of the Year” for 2012 by Wyndham Worldwide.  The award was announced at this year’s Wyndham Revenue Generation Summit in Puerto Rico.  Wyndham Worldwide represents over 7,000 hotels throughout the world and is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.

“It was a complete shock that we won this prestigious award out of over 7,000 hotels,” said Missy Handyside, General Manager of the Ramada Oasis.   Handyside attended the Wyndham Revenue Generation Summit in January where her hotel and two Wyndham Resorts were nominated for the award.   “I was just honored to be nominated and winning was completely unexpected. I knew our sales team was the best, but to have Wyndham Worldwide acknowledge it is absolutely amazing,” Handyside said.

The award is based on the sales team’s involvement with the Wyndham Global Sales Team, group business revenue, engagement with the franchise, community involvement and creative selling ideas.  “The Ramada Oasis Springfield is an outstanding property with a truly tremendous staff, a fact underscored by this most recent award,” said Caryl Porter, Vice President of Operations for Ramada Worldwide. “On behalf of myself and everyone at Ramada Worldwide, we offer our sincerest congratulations to the hotel’s sales team and thank them for being such dedicated ambassadors of our global brand.”

The Ramada Oasis Hotel & Convention Center offers more than 30,000 square feet of meeting space and 173 guest rooms & suites.  The Ramada Oasis also offers an indoor pool & hot tub nestled in a gorgeous tropical atrium, outdoor heated pool, fitness room, business center, Fire & Ice Restaurant & (Ice) Bar, 24 hour gift shop and complimentary airport shuttle service.
