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! 

Have you let your favorite vendor, event planner or venue know how much you appreciate them by voting for them in Northwest Meetings + Events Best of 2018 readers’ choice awards? No? Well, what are you waiting for? Show them some well-deserved love!

 

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.
