Montana’s Triple Creek Ranch was named as one of the Top Resorts in the West in the 30th annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. This independently-owned resort doesn’t just provide guests with a comfortable and luxurious place to stay; they provide guests the opportunity to partake in unique and exciting experiences. Buried in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, the ranch offers immersive weekends in viticulture, birding and the arts, horseback riding, fly fishing with Orvis-endorsed guides, skijoring, and panning for sapphires. 25 unique and very private log cabins come with a wood-burning fireplace, king-size bed, fully stocked wet bar and outdoor hot tub. For 25 years, owners Craig and Barbara Barrett have been creating a warm and welcoming mountain retreat.

Chef Jacob Leatherman’s thoughtfully prepared menu highlights the experience gained from his time cooking at the James Beard House in New York. Sommelier Jeremy White directs the wine program and received consecutive Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence awards since 2005 and a yearly Best Of, Award of Excellence from the publication since 2012. A series of Vintner Weekends brings some of the world’s best winemakers and vineyard owners to Triple Creek Ranch.

One of my first official duties as editor of Northwest Meetings + Events waaaaaaaaay back when was serving as a judge for the Emerald City Applause Awards. I remember being incredibly impressed by all of the talent in our region. I still am. Come celebrate that ingenuity at the (nearly sold out) 2018 Emerald City Applause Awards (ECAAs). Guests are encouraged to dress in accordance with the event’s theme: Seas the Night.


You’ll soon have another venue option when you’re looking to get away for a business retreat in Washington. Choice Hotels International, Inc. has signed an agreement with Sound West Group to develop a Cambria hotel in Bremerton, Washington. The five-story, 121-room hotel will be part of a mixed-use waterfront development on Marina Square, adjacent to the Bremerton Marina and the Kitsap Conference Center.


Metro Public Works recently announced the start of a new glass recycling initiative to being in Lower Broadway in Nashville, TN.

Mayor Megan Barry said it was the city’s first glass bottle recycling initiative. “Lower Broadway has become an international tourist destination, and long-neck bottles are now synonymous with the honky-tonk experience,” Barry said. “For too long, we’ve had to throw away glass that could have been recycled and repurposed. This program is like no other, and we are excited to lead the charge toward a more sustainable city.”
