    The All-New Space is Open for Business

Book your event in a space with a blank canvas and let your ideas inform the venue. That’s the idea behind the new IDEA Studio in downtown Chicago. Housed in the International Interior Design Association office, this venue has an intricate mosaic-tiled entryway, which gives way to walls of windows and a clean design that serves as a canvas for any kind of event. Amenities like state-of-the-art A/V and meals in the on-site catering kitchen can be included.

“Our guests love the openness and personality of the space,” says Anastasia Gedman, special events manager at IIDA. “Clients aren’t confined to a dull, windowless meeting room—instead, they are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling views of Michigan Avenue and custom-designed offices.”

The IIDA office offers 2,800 square feet of flexible space. Smaller options include an executive boardroom, multiple conference rooms, a reception space and intimate lounge vignettes.  

Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Hotel Drover, an award-winning Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott, focuses on simple pleasures and genuine hospitality. Kick-off your boots and stay awhile with 200 rustic-luxe rooms and suites. When ready, grab a hand-crafted cocktail or cold beer and wander outside to The Backyard at Hotel Drover, an outdoor oasis, with creekside seating, outdoor games, and seasonal live music.

 

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.
