Seattle-based Zegrahm Expeditions is launching its 2021 small-ship voyages collection.

Excursions with the educational travel company include a team of experts, such as marine biologists, ornithologists, anthropologists, naturalists and historians, offering a one-to-one staff to guest ratio.

The newest collection includes seven expeditions spanning the earth’s far reaches, including Tracing the West Coast of Africa, discovering the Mediterranean’s Mosaic, exploring Wild Ireland and Scotland, a Polar Bear Quest in Svalbard, Circumnavigating the Black Sea, and a journey through the Crossroads of Empires from Cyprus to Jordan. 

Over the years, any corporate event planner can admit to spending countless hours researching the perfect venue or vendors for their gatherings. After attending or hosting hundreds of events, New York-based Daphne Hoppenot was no stranger to this research and was frustrated by its repetitive nature. However, it was planning her wedding in 2018 that pushed her to realize the lack of resources in the corporate events market compared to the wedding industry, and set out to see if other meetings and events professionals were struggling with the same problem.  

 

Freelancing has become a new ball game since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, as many companies cannot afford to keep full-time positions, but still need those tasks completed. Although many more professionals have had to join the freelancing community since March, Tracy Judge had the passion for the freelancing community two years ago–long before the pandemic hit–and founded her company Soundings Connect in order to directly connect meetings and events industry freelancers with customers. 

 

Located in Oregon’s wine country, The Allison Inn and Spa is offering some new team-building options for meeting planners. Experiences include:

» Smith Teas Tasting: Claire Boyer, Smith Teamaker’s head of education, offers a hands-on class uncovering the exotic world of tea.

» Lotion Blending: Awaken the senses and heighten creativity with a hands-on lotion and essential oil-blending workshop.
