After you’re done hitting the slopes at the Wisconsin wonderland this winter (see our ski story on page 22), relax in the comfort of your own private home. Grand Geneva Resort & Spa—located in southeastern Lake Geneva—recently unveiled a lineup of 29 all-season villas for business and leisure visitors, increasing the number of available guest rooms on-site to more than 600. These upscale lodging options reflect a multimillion dollar investment and offer conference guests privacy and creature comforts during their stay while not straying far from the main meeting rooms and dining venues. A convenient trolley also provides door-to-door transportation and can be scheduled with a new, userfriendly app.

Available are studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, most with full kitchens, washer and dryer units and modern furnishings. Many also include a fireplace for warming up during the winter, and all have access to an outdoor fire pit for the more temperate times of year. Other amenities guests can enjoy include in-villa spa treatments and grocery delivery, as well as full use of the 1,300-acre property.  

Crafted by award-winning bartender and spirits professional Peter Vestinos, this refreshing summer sipper—a gin and tonic at its heart—has been artfully infused by the spirits and flavors of Greece and the country’s cuisine. “The Chareau liqueur provides Mediterranean flavors of cucumber, mint, and lemon and the Verino Mastiha integrates a signature herbal resin flavor, while the cardamom adds a unique earthy and exotic note,” says Vestinos.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
