AC Unpacked: A conversation – Marriott’s New Panel Series

AC Unpacked launched July 24, at the AC New York Times Square moderated by AC brand ambassador Nigel Barker discussing the theme of “Vision”.  

The first conversation included Rehan Choudhry, Founder of A Beautiful Perspective and the Life is Beautiful Festival; and Dan Barasch, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Lowline.  The discussion focused on how they used vision and global thinking to see the world not as it is, but as it could be.

“The AC guest approaches life with curiosity, seeing travel as a way to create and curate genuine connections to people, experiences, and ideas that galvanize them,” said Benoit Racle, Senior Global Brand Director, AC Hotels by Marriott. “The AC Unpacked: A Conversation series is a carefully-curated program that will bring new ideas from creative visionaries all around the world to our guests and locals – providing inspiration for them in both their professional and personal lives.”

Two additional conversations are already in the works for the Times Square venue on September 6 and October 11, 2018. The first will focus on Design, and Stephanie Mark, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of luxury fashion destination Coveteur will be among the panelists. The second will focus on Travel & Experiences.
