Dawn Callahan, Boingo’s VP marketing, and Scott Ewalt, manager of customer acquisition and retention, are live at the Global Traveler’s Awards Ceremony at the Andaz Wall Street Hotel (grand opening was last week). And yes, they’re accepting an award for Boingo this evening.
7:45 p.m. EST Fran Gallagher, publisher and CEO of Global Traveler Magazine, is kicking off the festivities by introducing the GM of the Andaz Hotel where the awards are being held… A beautiful new property that opened ten days ago on wall street.
7:46 p.m. EST Academy Award nominee Terrance Howard just stopped by our table to introduce himself to Scott Ewalt, Boingo’s manager of customer acquisition. Not kidding.
8:05 p.m. EST Certainly the award winner who came the farthest to collect their award is the Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, winner of the Best Hotel Chain In The Middle East. They are just in from Dubai!
8:10 p.m. EST Terrance Howard presents Boingo with the award for Best Wi-Fi Service!!! (I will post a picture in a minute!). Thank you, readers of Global Traveler Magazine!
What an exciting evening it was! We drank champagne, we hobnobbed with nice (and famous) people, and we enjoyed the NYC skyline. Check out our pictures here.
Thanks again to Global Traveler Magazine readers for choosing Boingo as the the Best Wi-Fi service!
