Tourism Whistler has announced a $3.5-million conference center renovation set to begin January 2020. Located in the heart of Whistler village, the resort’s main conference facility will be receiving updates to everything from lighting and furnishings to acoustics and artwork. Renovations will be made throughout the 65,000 square feet of meeting space, which can accommodate 2,000 people.

The Whistler Conference Centre can accommodate anything from bands to driving a car into the ballroom. In order to achieve a contemporary and modern aesthetic, renovations will be adding high-quality finishes to already-iconic features, such as the cathedral ceiling and Rumford rock fireplace. 

While changes are being made inside, the stunning landscape surrounding the conference center will continue to be constant for visitors. Taking care of the outdoors and the surrounding area has always been important to Tourism Whistler, and during these renovations, they will continue their green initiatives and focus on sustainability. 

When groups are ready to get out of meetings, the conference center is within walking distance of 150+ restaurants, 200 retail stores, nightlife, and much more to explore. Meeting groups are also close to several hotels throughout the Whistler Village, where they can take advantage of hotel activities like skiing and snowboarding. Also, U.S. clients utilizing the conference center will often save 25-30 percent depending on the exchange rate. 

This holiday, the Emerald City will be sparkling like never before. For both locals and visitors, many Seattle hotels will be offering an array of promotions and packages that showcase the best the city has to offer. 

 

Brasada Ranch, located outside of Bend, Oregon, recently unveiled new meeting venues and group experiences, expanding upon one of the most idyllic venues in the Pacific Northwest.

At Brasada Ranch, guests are inspired by the wide-open setting, sustainable and contemporary design, limitless recreation opportunities and flexible event spaces that include indoor barn venues, outdoor areas, and new spaces including The Studio and Cascade Event Lawn.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
