February Updates from SITCC

2018 is off to a great start for the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center. Here are some of the key employee updates from SITCC:


Tavares Barnett, Employee of the Quarter, awarded February 5, 2018.

Tavares Barnett’s drive and work ethic are not only noticed by his managers but also by his peers. Barnett sets a shining example of what it means to be a part of a team. These are a few of the many reasons he was chosen as Employee of the Quarter at SITCC.

At SITCC, the employee of the quarter is awarded a prime parking spot along with signage in the employee parking lot, along with being put in the running to become the Employee of the Year! 



Shavon Barnes, Housekeeping, Spotlight Employee, awarded February 5, 2018.

Shavon Barnes was recognized at the SITCC Quarterly All Staff Meeting as the Spotlight Employee. Those who work closely with Barnes have noted that she is a great employee, always friendly, responsive and quick to help whenever needed. Barnes goes above and beyond her duties making SITCC a great place to be, and the reason she is the Spotlight Employee!



On Saturday, February 10th along with Savannah College of Art and Design’s Freedom by Design Club, SITCC hosted their first Charrette! A Charrette is “a meeting in which all stakeholders in a project attempt to resolve conflicts and map solutions.” A number of SCAD students, faculty and staff were in attendance along with a team from tvsdesign in Atlanta to look at the SITCC logo and expansion plans. Students brainstormed marketing and growth of the convention center in Savannah along with how to bring the city across the river to join in the experiences taking place at the Center. 



Nyosha Thomas, Steward with SAVOR… Savannah at SITCC is a finalist for the Tourism Leadership Council (TLC) Service Star Award!
