A Dynamic Team

It’s been a great year for Ramada Plaza Cincinnati.

Since Jay Bedi and his business partners bought the 250-room hotel in Sharonville in April 2016, hundreds of family and corporate events have been held at the establishment, which boasts a bar, restaurant, an 8,400-square-foot grand ballroom, 700-seat banquet hall and the attached indoor water park, Splash Cincinnati.

According to this dynamic leadership team, the Ramada Plaza is going strong. This group is also well known for making wedding day wishes come true for exuberant brides-to-be at Elements Event Centre. In addition to its Lebanon Road location in Sharonville, Elements is also now located at Ramada Plaza. They have brought their meticulous attention to detail and commitment to the highest standard of customer service to the Ramada, guaranteeing that no particulars are overlooked, whether they are hosting a wedding reception, a fundraiser or a corporate meeting.

The key to the Ramada Plaza success is leveraging the combined experience of their business team: their hotel management/business administration talents, top-notch event planning talents and gold-standard customer service skills. Ramada Plaza’s first year under this hard-working crew has been one of hosting outstanding events, providing top-quality hotel stays and offering astounding waterpark experiences. 

It’s also been a year of lifetime goals met and dreams come true.

“I came to the United States as an immigrant at age 14, striving toward the American dream,” says Bedi. “My first job was at Hardee’s at 15, where I worked through my high school years. After a few years of college, I wanted to be in business, and I opened my first restaurant (Bombay Palace) in 1996 in Clifton.”

Opening the Elements Event Centre in 2008 amidst turbulent economic times didn’t deter this team, and they never gave up.  The catering company grew to a staff of more than 10, added a limousine service and has produced thousands of events since.
