Hot Off the Presses

Scout Gaming, the world’s leading global provider of B2B Daily Fantasy Sports, Sportsbook, Fantasy betting and other related sport-betting products, has entered a partnership with eFanGage, a joint venture between SCCG Management and Backal Hospitality Group of New York, to deliver the latest in venue-based simulated social sportsbook, fantasy sports and esports for bars, restaurants, stadiums, and arenas across the U.S.  eFanGage will deliver a Free to Play (F2P) Fantasy sports software solution, designed to engage venue patrons through peer-to-peer competition and rewards within the physical locations of sports and entertainment focused venues and beyond. 

Avalara, Inca leading provider of cloud-based tax compliance automation for businesses of all sizes has released the availability of Avalara for Hospitality, a new solution for hotel chains, resorts, online travel agencies, property management groups, and short-term rental operators. This technology automates the most onerous and time-consuming aspects of tax compliance, including calculation and filing of sales and lodging tax returns, solving a point of stress in the industry. The need for this type of digitization has been long overdue in the hotel industry which has been slower to integrate advanced software solutions for back end applications. 

 Venue News

The Inn at Millrace Pond will soon be unveiling a ground breaking new addition, which will serve as the crowned jewel to complete the venue's new, unique and elevated destination wedding experience. Tucked away in the beautiful and scenic northern New Jersey countryside, The Inn at Millrace Pond has been bringing a touch of rustic charm to locals and visitors alike since 1769. You should know that we're no stranger to history -- prior to opening as a bed and breakfast, our property was home to a Moravian Grist Mill, and a staple in the Hope community.

The Albany Capital Center (ACC) is pleased to announce the installation of a free-standing Mamava Lactation Pod, sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield of Northeastern New York. Mamava Lactation Pods are freestanding spaces that provide a clean, comfortable, and private option to chestfeed or pump at the Albany Capital Center, and will be available at all events beginning in September.
