What are you doing March 4–6? How about joining Northwest Meetings + Events magazine in Reno, Nevada at the Peppermill Resort for the 2018 Cascadia Educational Conference?

Northwest Meetings + Events is pleased to be a sponsor of the conference once again. This year, I will be leading a workshop on making your company media friendly. I hope you’ll join me at the session—I really am friendly, I promise. 

Cascadia is one of the premier industry events on the West Coast. This year’s agenda focuses on shattering expectations, breaking out of the “usual” and, of course, sharing ideas with hundreds of colleagues from across the Northwest. There will also be plenty of fun (and poker).
For more information, visit mpicascadia.com. I hope to see you there! 

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.

 

As I write this, I’m sitting in the Indiana Convention Center for MPI’s 2018 World Education Congress. What an amazing experience. My hometown is definitely putting on a good show for everyone, complete with perfect weather and a warm, Hoosier hospitality welcome!

 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
