Chicago’s Fairmont Millennium Park hotel announced the appointment of John Cordeaux to executive chef.

"We are extremely fortunate to welcome such a culinary talent to Fairmont Chicago," said Mark Huntley, regional vice president and general manager of Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park. "Chef Cordeaux will be an excellent leader for our culinary team and bring a new creative vision to our operation. We are delighted to have him bring his experience over three continents to our hotel and know he will make a tremendous contribution to the property and the community."

In his new role Cordeaux will be responsible for the hotel’s food and beverage team and culinary operation at the hotel. Throughout his 30 years of experience in the industry, Cordeaux has earned several awards and accolades, the most recent being Chef of the Year by The Hotelier Middle East in 2010.

"While my tenure in the Middle East was incredibly rewarding, I’m delighted to return to North America, and Fairmont Chicago, fresh from a amore and $60 million renovation, is a spectacular location in one of the United States’ premier culinary cities," said Cordeaux. "I’m fortunate to have a talented culinary team in place and look forward to working with them to enhance our operation." 

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
