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.

Scheduled to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Bremerton Island will feature a rooftop deck with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, multi-function meeting space, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pool and spa, and underground parking. The hotel will also include on-site dining.

Bremerton is located on the Kitsap Peninsula, a short, one-hour ferry ride from Seattle. If you need a little more room than the Cambria will provide, the Kitsap Conference Center has 17,000 square feet of meeting space and can host up to 700 guests. For more information on the Cambria hotel project, you can check out the video here.

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.


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.”


Experiencing a good cup of coffee in the Northwest is as much a rite of passage as sampling deep-dish pizza in Chicago, po’ boys in New Orleans or Philadelphia cheese steaks in —well, you know. So lucky for you, when you’re holding a meeting in the Olympia area, you and your delegates can take a break along the South Sound Coffee Trail. The self-guided tour was launched last November and introduces you and your group to all things craft coffee in the South Sound.
