Director of Event Planning, Gaylord Rockies
Amanda Meecham is the Director of Event Planning and oversees the Senior Event Managers and Event Experience Managers as they plan and execute groups of up to 4,000 attendees at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center, the largest combined resort and convention center in Colorado.
Amanda was part of the pre-opening team in 2018 and served as an integral part in hiring and training the 40-person Event Planning team. She also worked closely with many other departments and vendors in developing Local Standard Operating Procedures (LSOPs) for the 1,500-room resort.
After graduating from the University of Florida and backpacking across Europe for four months, Amanda began her hospitality career as a Front Desk Agent with Loews Hotels in Orlando, Florida. Shortly thereafter she started her journey with Gaylord Hotels as a Conference Coordinator (“Teal Coat”) at Gaylord Palms. Since then she has held multiple roles in Event Planning, including opening a Marriott Hotel in Hartford, Connecticut. She is thrilled that her passion for Gaylord Hotels and the events world has led her to her latest adventure in Colorado.
