Discover Saratoga welcomed Chloejean Tedford to the team as the director of convention services.

In this role, Tedford will work directly with meeting and event planners to ensure their meeting, conference or convention is a truly memorable Saratoga experience.

Tedford comes to Discover Saratoga with more than five years of experience as a Saratoga hospitality professional. Most recently, she worked as the senior event services manager for The Saratoga Hilton.

Prior to that she served as an event manager for Mazzone Hospitality, working specifically with clients at the Canfield Casino. Tedford has a bachelor’s degree in Communications & Event Planning from SUNY Oneonta, and is working to obtain her Certified Meeting Professional designation later this year.

“One of the key differentiators Saratoga has over other meetings destinations is the experience we can provide, not only to the planner but to the attendee as well,” explained Discover Saratoga president, Todd Garofano. “Chloejean will do an amazing job to provide creative and innovative solutions to continue to elevate Saratoga as a meetings and convention destination.”

In her new position, Tedford will report to Mary Jo Janis, who was recently promoted to vice president, Convention Sales & Services. Janis has led the sales team for the last several years as director of convention sales.
