Talking Stick Resort and Casino Welcomes Phoenix Fashion Week

Phoenix Fashion Week is expanding on an incredible level, with 130% attendance jump from 2009-2010 and over 6,000 attendees last year at the W Scottsdale. This year, Phoenix Fashion Week was looking to not only accommodate their growing fan base, but to chose a venue that enhanced the sophistication fashion week is known for.  It’s no surprise that Talking Stick Resort and Casino, off Indian Bend and 101 in Scottsdale, was the top pick for Phoenix Fashion Week 2011.

I caught up with Talking Stick Resort’s Public Relations Director Ramon Martinez, who discussed why they feel the resort is a great fit for fashion week, as well as future plans.

Q: Provide our readers a brief background about your beautiful resort and how it came about.
“We consider Talking Stick Resort to be more than a hotel; it is truly an entertainment destination. In addition to the 497 luxurious guest rooms, the property is home to such upscale amenities as five world-class restaurants, six lounges, two pools, a rejuvenating 14th floor spa and a 650-seat showroom featuring live performance by headline entertainers. And of course, we have the 240,000-square-foot casino floor with some of the best gaming action in the state!”
“Talking Stick Resort is a business enterprise of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. The property was conceived many years ago as a long-term investment for the future of the Community. In fact, SRPMIC is proudly the sole owner and operator of Talking Stick Resort.”

Q: We are glad to host Phoenix Fashion Week with you this year! Why did this partnership make sense for your brand?

“Talking Stick Resort is the only place in Scottsdale where guests can eat, spa, play and stay in style. That being said, a partnership with Fashion Week is a natural fit. Beyond that, Phoenix Fashion Week is such a large, successful event that it gives us a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase our property to throngs of people who may never have visited before.”

Q: What are you most excited about for fashion week?

“Like most people who will be in attendance, we are excited to see first-hand the emerging local talent. Events like this help position Arizona as an industry leader. And demonstrating our state as a leader in any industry, be it fashion or any other industry is important. It can have positive impacts on not only job growth, but on our economy as a whole.”

Q: Any exciting new plans for your resort in the new year?
“Talking Stick Resort has had such great success since opening last year that our plan is to keep doing what we’re doing, only better. We will continue to host the best headline entertainment and top-notch stage shows. We will still be home to the Valley’s most exciting gaming action, a beautiful, luxurious spa with amazing specials and delicious food with the best views. Keep your eye on us because we always have something going on!”

Thanks Ramon!
