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. 

On Monday, Nov. 4, Zen Box Izakaya and Lowry Hill Meats are partnering for a Butcher x Ramen Popup from 5-9 p.m. at Lowry Hill Meats. Featuring Japanese comfort food like barnyard ramen and fiery bird ramen, as well as fine cuts of meat like smoked pork brisket and smoked chicken leg, the Butcher x Ramen Popup will offer the best of these Minneapolis food scene icons.

 

A highly acclaimed gem in the Chicago hotel scene, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel is inviting guests to elevate their stay with the introduction of its new Best of Chicago Package.

 

Situated just outside of Chicago, The Rose Hotel Chicago O'Hare is nestled conveniently in the newly developed Pearl District of Rosemont, making it the closest hotel property to O’Hare International Airport. The establishment is within walking distance from some of the area’s most popular entertainment destinations like the Impact Field, Fashion Outlets of Chicago, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and the Rosemont Theatre.
