Finding a venue is one of the first decisions a meeting planner makes. Its size and location can make a big impact on meeting attendance. The Sheraton Tysons Hotel—managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts—located outside of Washington, DC, is helping planners choose by offering a package for planners booking through 2020.

“We have become extremely popular with those who plan larger-sized meetings,” says Linda Westgate, general manager of the hotel, which hosts about 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and features 449 guest rooms. “Our size is ideal for those larger groups that need extensive meeting space, with options for breakout rooms or ancillary banquet space, all in one place.”

Larger hotels are more difficult when it comes to getting staff attention and moving meetings around last minute.

“When a planner contracts all our space, they do so knowing they will get the personalized attention to details they need and deserve with a large event,” says Westgate.

The smaller, suburban hotel is connected to Washington D.C.’s three airports and Amtrak through the Silver Line Metrorail, which is only two blocks away. Guests have access to restaurants, shopping options and downtown D.C.

The Suburban Convention Promotion offers double meeting planner starpoints, double upgrades for VIPs, 20 percent off food and beverage pricing and 20 percent off meeting room rentals. The offer is available to groups that book at least 200 room nights, and their stay will occur prior to Dec. 31, 2020. Book by March 31, 2017 to receive the promotion!

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.
