Best Corporate Events, LLC and SmartHunts, LLC

Scott Flynn is the founder and CEO of Best Corporate Events LLC and SmartHunts LLC. He started by building two successful publishing companies that were purchased by Cendant (CD) in 1990. He then launched Zachary, a software reseller company, which made the Inc. 500 with a 1658% five year sales gain and was quickly acquired by tech giant Global Direct Mail (NYSE). In 2010

Mr. Flynn created Best Corporate Events by merging top companies in the fields of team building, interactive technology, and professional corporate training. The seasoned owners running those companies pooled their skill sets to design and launch an amazing line of original event programming that’s delivered to companies nationwide.

Best Corporate Events has designed and trademarked some of the most popular programs in their industry and have created a wide variety of high-tech team building programs using iPads® and apps that they’ve developed. They’re now the largest company of their kind in America, delivering programming at hotels nationwide from their regional offices.

When Apple debuted the iPad, Mr. Flynn formed SmartHunts® which developed apps to run corporate events on iPads. SmartHunts are fun, challenging, high-tech corporate scavenger hunts delivered using Apple iPads® and SmartHunts’ Apps that utilizes text messaging, audio, video, FaceTime®, QR Codes, iMovie®, social media, and GPS tracking.

SmartHunts are a combination of adventure, sightseeing, gaming, laughter, and teambuilding. Their apps even create a movie, on the fly, of every SmartHunt, so it’s ready playing on the big screen when groups arrive back to their hotel ballroom.

Best Corporate Events and SmartHunts are members of ADMEI, MPI, ISES, and SITE and sell their programming direct and through In-house Corporate Planners, Meeting & Event Planners, DMCs, Meeting and Incentive companies, and Hotels.

Coming Up In The May Online Hotel Business Review




Feature Focus
Eco-Friendly Practices: The Value of Sustainability
The hotel industry continues to make remarkable progress in implementing sustainability policies and procedures in their properties throughout the world. As a result, they continue to reap the benefits of increased profitability, enhanced guest experiences, and improved community relations. In addition, as industry standards are codified and adopted worldwide, hotels can now compare how their operations measure up against their competitors in terms of sustainable practices and accomplishments. This capacity to publicly compare and contrast is spurring competition and driving innovation as hotels do not wish to be left behind in this area. Water management and conservation is still a primary issue as population growth, urbanization, pollution and wasteful consumption patterns place increasing demands on freshwater supply. Water recycling; installing low-flow fixtures; using digital sensors to control water usage; and even harvesting rainwater are just a few things that some hotels are doing to preserve this precious resource. Waste management is another major concern. Through policies of reduce, reuse and recycle, some hotels are implementing “zero-waste” programs with the goal of substantially reducing their landfill waste which produces carbon dioxide and methane gases. Other hotels have established comprehensive training programs that reinforce the value of sustainability. There is employee engagement through posters and quizzes, and even contests are held to increase innovation, sensitivity and environmental awareness. Some hotels are also monitoring a guest’s energy usage and rewarding those who consumed less energy with gifts and incentives. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are integrating eco-friendly practices into their operations and how they and the environment are benefiting from them.
