    New partnership brings organized approach to small and midsize trade shows. 

IMS Technology Services and Alliance Exposition Services have teamed up to assist managers of smaller to midsize trade shows to better execute their events. IMS, a full-service audio-visual company with event staging and systems integration solutions, and Alliance, the only Nationwide General Service Contractor focusing exclusively on smaller to midsize events, will together provide a seamless support system—and one point of contact—in coordinating event production needs and exhibitor management services.

“Clients will be able to upgrade the look and feel for exhibitors and attendees," says Paul Wedesky, COO of IMS." This will give midsize shows options, a bigger scale event without expanding their budget, and it will help them grow by connecting them with sponsorships.”

Wedesky also says that internet providers and registration companies are also in the works to create the "complete package": a seamless product for registration to simplify the process for event professionals. "Planners will be able to customize a program with consistency, both out front and behind the scenes." 

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.
