Special events business news

Andrew Roby has announced the launch of Gilded Glen, a unique home decor ecommerce store that focuses on decor, dinner table essentials, and in-home entertainment.

Following nearly a year of canceled trade shows, Go LIVE Together is working closely with major convention and exhibitions-oriented cities around the United States to help promote safe reopening plans and accelerate recovery for the business events industry’s nearly 7 million employees, as well as the markets they support. Recently, three heavy-hitters in trade show production and leaders behind a trio of fashion events teamed up to hold a groundbreaking co-located expo, which serves as a case study to prove that business events can be held safely. The event held Feb. 9-11, the first in the U.S. to offer onsite COVID-19 testing, proved that strict enforcement of protocols are the foundation to safely doing business, as no new cases resulted from the event.

Caesars Entertainment, one of the most diversified casino-entertainment companies in the world, is proud to honor Stacey Purcell, assistant director of sales in Las Vegas for 30 years of service with Caesars Entertainment.

As California looks ahead to welcoming the return of conventions, Visit Sacramento will offer planners the ideal West Coast location with the early 2021 opening of Sacramento’s new SAFE Credit Union Convention Center. This fully renovated, expanded and reimagined space will feature new, flexible indoor and outdoor space that is perfect for the changing needs of meetings professionals.

The much anticipated Thompson San Antonio is now open and welcoming guests to its 162-guest rooms and suites. The luxury lifestyle hotel, located in San Antonio’s dynamic Arts District, is shaking up the city’s hospitality and culinary scene – offering locals and visitors a modern retreat featuring four  F&B destinations, a show-stopping pool deck with a lively events calendar, luxury cabanas, and a full-service 5,000 square foot spa.
