Hyatt upsets last year’s winner, IHG Rewards Club, for Program of the Year in this category and must be doing something right for its members in Middle East / Asia / Oceania because the program ranked fourth last year. Moving from fourth to first in one year is an accomplishment worth noting. Hyatt Gold Passport has a strong elite program that members appreciate and members can choose from truly aspirational properties when they are ready to spend their points.

Angie Rose Tynan, Associate Marketing Manager, Rene Mizwicki, Director, Hyatt Gold Passport and Jeff Zidell, Senior Vice President, Loyalty Marketing are in the audience tonight to accept the award.
