• Prestige Resorts & Destinations Hosting Fashion & Food Events for Meeting Planners

    POSTED May 5, 2014

Minneapolis-based and global site selection firm Prestige Resorts & Destinationsis is hosting 12 fashion and food inspired events for meeting planners across North America. The series of events aims to pair meeting planners in Prestige's target cities with destinations and venues across the world.

All events are coordinated with The Blues Jean Bar, an apparel and custom-fit blue jeans retailer. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with hotel, cruise, DMC and CVB representatives over hors d’oeurves and drinks. Planners will then be able to shop for a free pair of high-end blue jeans valued at over $150, compliments of Prestige.

Event venues include The Blues Jean Bar stores, five-star hotels, coffee houses and micro-breweries. Attendees receive a passport book with vendor information, they then receive stamps from the different destinations they speak with. Afterwards, the passports can be taken home for future reference.

After the successful launch of the event in Colorado, California and Missouri earlier this year, Prestige plans to host five more events this year in Toronto, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago and Dallas. Hotel vendors may register to attend at $750 for one event or at $500 each for multiple events.

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.
