The Hiltons of Branson are a client of Geile/Leon Public Relations, a St. Louis Public Relations agency.

The award ceremony was covered by Branson Tri-Lakes News, the local newspaper. Below is the article “Hilton presented the first Blue Energy Award to Hiltons of Branson for its positive impact on teams, business and the community.”

Hilton presented the first Blue Energy Award to Hiltons of Branson for its positive impact on teams, business and the community. “Blue Energy represents such an important part of our culture of hospitality,” said Bill Derbins, general manager of Hiltons of Branson. “Congratulations to all of the team members of our two hotels for going above and beyond to make our guests and the members of our community feel valued and respected.”

More than 500 submissions were received from Hilton hotels and resorts around the world. The Blue Energy Quarterly Award is based on two criteria, the Brand Scorecard and the Quarterly Update completed by each property.

The Blue Energy initiatives that set Hiltons of Branson apart this quarter included a number of events recognizing team members for their hard work, a clean-up effort of Branson Landing Boulevard, a food drive for survivors of the Joplin tornadoes and innovative ways to recycle, reduce and reuse.
