Short Bio: Recipient of HSMAI’s 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award, Nancy founded NJFPR in 1987 following a formative career in travel, entertainment, and destination public relations. NJFPR’s “Leave No Stone Unturned” philosophy has catapulted the firm to the top of the category in travel and hospitality. For clients seeking senior level counsel, advocacy of their product and unrivalled media savvy, Nancy J. Friedman Public Relations is a first-stop. A self- described “media junkie with wanderlust”, Nancy and her team pride themselves on long-term partnerships with clients and the ability to wring every ounce of marketing potential out of a property or destination utilizing social media, traditional media, events and creative promotions. The Agency pioneered NY’s first Hotel Week in January 2012 to great success and will be increasing participation for January 2013.
