Sinisa Djukic, a banquet manager at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot, has been named the Hospitality Hero award winner for first quarter by Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association. “We receive comments after every single event about how much Sinisa was the perfect backbone to the group’s success,” says Managing Director Michael Clark. “By creating a welcoming environment for guests, Sinisa leaves a lasting impression that encompasses Minneapolis’ hospitable nature. His faithfulness continues to impress visitors, he leads the team effectively, and his role is essential to the Renaissance.”

Clark notes that clients often rebook because of Djukic’s dedication to his job; he is known to go in on his day off to ensure all is running smoothly for events. Djukic turns “transactions into memorable experiences” for the clients and guests, making hospitality a priority for every interaction.
