Historic Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center in Upstate New York Looks Back on 50 Years Since Becoming the Nation's First Conference Center

  TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (April 2014) – As Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, celebrates 50 years as the nation’s first conference center, representatives of the property reflect on how meetings and other business gatherings have evolved over the past few decades.   In 1964, the New York Times described the Estate as a “campus for hire.” Over the past 50 years, the Estate has played host to thousands of educational institutions, organizations, and businesses including IBM, AT&T and General Electric and has contributed towards the growth of the conference center industry.   The property was acquired by Robert Schwartz, a visionary and journalist who had served at one time as New York bureau chief for Time Magazine. Schwartz realized that corporate America needed a new type of lodging facility designed exclusively for business meetings and with that, he set about the task of creating the nation’s first executive conference center.  Schwartz passed away in 2013, but his mantra from 1964 remains as relevant today as it was 50 years ago, “We wish all who come here, leave with a better and fuller sense of themselves and of their organization.”   Joe Santore, General Manager of the Estate & Conference Center for the last 10 years, said there has been a steady trend of loyalty at the property from businesses and large corporations in the region.   “The need for companies and professional organizations to bring their people together and connect is as present today as it has been over the last half century,” said Santore. “Our customers in 1964 remain our customers today, which are represented across all business segments and professional organizations.”   Santore noted that with the continuous evolvement of a diverse workforce, there has been a continued growth in networking opportunities taking place outside of the meeting room. The Estate’s college campus environment allows for gatherings of various sizes.   In 2006, the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) issued an official proclamation certifying Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center as the Nation’s First Conference Center. IACC has recognized the critical role the property has had in the creation of the Conference Center concept which now represents over 350 IACC properties worldwide.   In today’s business world, meetings continue to be high in demand as a key way to get corporate professionals together, according to Jamieson Asselta, Director of Sales.   “There is no greater return in investment than the investment that organizations continue to make on their staff by bringing them together to connect, network, and train in which a conference center like Tarrytown House provides,” he said.   Everything from teambuilding with fine culinary to implementing new technology during business gatherings ranked among the most popular meeting trends. “The projector has given way to the LCD and we are continually investing in greater bandwidths to meet our attendees’ needs. However, the single greatest technological advancement for the collaboration and fostering of ideas in the meeting room has been and continues to be the flip chart,” continued Asselta.   While the property has existed as a conference center for the past 50 years, the Estate dates back as early as 1840. Years later, in 1921, Mary Duke Biddle of the Duke Tobacco family purchased the large granite mansion which is known today as the Biddle Mansion. After her death in 1960, Biddle’s children sold it to the African nation of Mali, which used it for a short time as a diplomatic retreat before Schwartz acquired it one year later.   For more information about Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center, please call (914) 591-8200 or visit www.tarrytownhouseestate.com.    About Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center Celebrating 50 years as the nation’s first conference center, Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center, by Destination Hotels & Resorts is located just 25 miles from midtown Manhattan.
