The Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is welcoming guests and event planners in Chicago to the western suburb with new interactive website: stayinlisle.com.
 
"The new site is highly interactive for visitors and very easy for us to manage on our end too. We couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It has everything an event planner needs to get started identifying a venue in Lisle in a very easy to use format," says Diane Homolka, executive director of the Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau.
 
Features include customizable pages that allow users to add slideshows and testimonials, a custom events calendar and a multiplayer slideshow that highlights events and attractions in the Lisle area. Under the “Hotels" and "Meeting & Event Planning" sections planners can submit RFPs online and download a free event planning toolkit and Visitor's Guide from the Bureau.
 
"Although we wanted the site to be useful to event planners, it's just as informative for residents and visitors. The 'Explore Lisle' sections contains plenty of information about what to do in Lisle and where to stay while the 'Local Events' calendar keeps site visitors up-to-date on the latest goings-on in the area," explains Homolka.

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.

 

In early March, Meeting Professionals International released a statement regarding the invasion of Ukraine: 

“In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, MPI will immediately suspend business with all companies in Russia. In addition, any plans to formalize a chapter in Russia will be paused….We remain concerned for the well-being of our community and our MPI members in Russia and Ukraine who were already seeking to climb out of the shadow of this pandemic and are now experiencing these unprecedented challenges.”
