HQ BEACH CLUB TO DEBUT AT REVEL IN ATLANTIC CITY IN TIME FOR THE UPCOMING SPRING/SUMMER SEASON
Ultra-Luxe Beach Club to Bring Famous Las Vegas
Day-to-Night Experiences to the East Coast for the First Time
REVEL BEACH, Atlantic City, N.J. (March 6, 2013) – On the heels of the award-winning success of HQ Nightclub at Revel in Atlantic City, Angel Management Group (AMG) and EMM Group are excited to debut HQ Beach Club this May. With the Atlantic Ocean as its backdrop, the 45,000 square-foot beach club, located on the boardwalk level of the resort, channels Revel’s modern aesthetic through its multiple levels and draws inspiration from the majestic escapism of the island of Mykonos for its lavish décor.
“HQ Nightclub has redefined nightlife in Atlantic City and its tremendous success proves that the market for such experiential entertainment offerings is thriving,” said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Angel Management Group, “HQ Beach Club delivers the unique day-into-night experiences that we’ve envisioned for Revel since the beginning.”
HQ Beach Club at Revel will introduce a signature, ultra-luxe dayclub pool lounge to East Coasters for the first time. The L-shaped, adult-only playground hugs the slick curvature of the resort’s exterior with a triangular pool at its vertex serving as the central social space to mix, mingle, dance, and dine. Vibrant patterned daybeds flank each side of the pool, while individual plunge pools separate six extravagant bungalows from the main area. Complete with HD TV screens, overhead fans, couches, and two king size tufted-white beds, the exclusive retreats are tucked away in rich teakwood-clad alcoves punctuated by lustrous white marble columns.
Elevated from the pool level is the DJ booth, dance floor, and marbled-lined perimeter walkway that guides daylife revelers through additional daybed and cabana areas and two juxtaposing bars. Located just beyond the DJ booth, resting beneath a spire gilded in emerald green tiles and crosshatched lacquered oak beams, the peninsular-shaped Veranda Bar boasts extensive surface area and serves as a roomy rendezvous for guests to sip cocktails beneath its glass raindrop chandeliers. For those seeking respite from the pulsating energy of the dance floor, the Sunset Bar at the opposite end supplies a more relaxed environment, adorned with glass lanterns and a honeycombed façade that casts the nearby daybeds and teakwood deck in a warm, incandescent orange glow.
With entertainment offerings as the fuel for the new beachfront pool lounge, HQ Beach Club will welcome the same top-tier DJ talent its nighttime counterpart, HQ Nightclub, has become known for over the past year. Throbbing beats will envelop every corner of the venue via its integrated Turbosound system installed throughout each of the bars, cabanas, bungalows and pools. HQ Beach Club will also boast stunning model servers, who will tend to every detail, including bottle service for tables, daybeds, and bungalow reservations, as well as orders from the extensive cocktail and food menus.
**HQ Beach Club is now hiring for multiple positions. For more information or to apply online, please visit: www.AngelManagementGroup.com/Jobs. The application deadline is March 22, 2013.

Hospitality Volunteers Prepare for Philadelphia Auto Show
“Ask Me” Volunteers Serve as Welcoming Faces for Show, Convention Visitors
PHILADELPHIA, PA – The Pennsylvania Convention Center will train students enrolled in its training and education programs as hospitality volunteers for the upcoming Philadelphia Auto Show and other upcoming major events at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Each training session is about 90 minutes. The volunteers who will be trained include a mix of high school students enrolled in the Hotel, Restaurant, Travel & Tourism Program offered at five Philadelphia School District high schools that are part of the Philadelphia Academies initiative. Other trainees are enrolled in a hospitality workforce training program through the Philadelphia Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC).

The Center views its funding of education and training programs as vital to developing future generations of hospitality workers in this region. The funding comes from a portion of the hotel tax, which is levied on room night stays at area hotels.
