The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum complex, in downtown Springfield, has opened an exhibition of sets, costumes, and props from Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film Lincoln called "Lincoln: History to Hollywood."

The exhibit includes many items of note such as the furniture pieces and iconic props seen in the film. Most of the pieces are antiques from the Civil War era, not reproductions. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum houses more than 40,000 square feet of galleries, theatres, and historic displays that take visitors on a journey from Lincoln’s humble beginnings to the end of his Presidency.

The presidential museum complex in Springfield is a popular off-site venue for evening receptions and dinners. Meeting planners can take advantage of this new permanent exhibit in Springfield by scheduling group tours. 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
