    POSTED November 24, 2014
     
SPARK THINKING, the new partner brand of Ashfield Meetings & Events, was recently launched as a consultancy resource to improve the smoothness and efficiency of live events and communication strategies. SPARK THINKING was created from the insight uncovered by the agency regularly offering live events and creative, production, digital and communication projects for their clients.
 
The brand will be global in it’s reach and headed by the global managing director, Nicola Burns. SPARK will consist of an assortment of people from Ashfield Meetings & Events and the broader Ashfield Division. The purpose of the new brand is to combine resources and shake up the thinking process of meetings and events.
 
Gavin Houston, CEO of Americas commented, “The creation of SPARK THINKING provides an opportunity for us to respond to our clients with powerful communication experiences. By combining resources and encouraging imaginative thinking, we forge a partnership with clients to address their needs with innovation as well as tried and tested event delivery capabilities."
 
Houston added, “We have seen that our clients are facing shared problems through fast and sometimes unforeseen change. As a result in today’s ever evolving market, opportunities require a swift response and this is driven by the quality of their communications and events. Through a combination of extensive event delivery experience and SPARK THINKING’s fresh ideas, we are empowered to meet these challenges and support clients in staying ahead of the curve and creating new categories and playing fields.”​

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.
