• Even Meetings Can be Stylish

    POSTED May 20, 2015

Walk into a meeting, walk out with a perfectly fitted pair of jeans. That is the premise of the Blues Jean Bar, an event add-on that encourages networking and dress-up amongst professionals while incorporating a high-grade gift item. The Aspen-based, high-quality clothing retailer is the genius behind this unique activity, which works as follows: Come to a three-hour meet-and-greet with suppliers, do a little speed networking by having short appointments with different vendors and get fitted for a pair of denim you can take home with you (a value of $160-$250).

To receive the gift, guests must meet with each vendor. Perfect for any occasion or event, especially corporate entities looking to reward employees, the Blues Jean Bar makes for a creative and memorable experience.

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.


In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
