The Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau claimed several awards in the Texas Association of Convention & Visitors Bureaus Idea Fair at the organization’s annual conference in El Paso, Texas, this week.

“Our team continues to prove themselves year after year with award-winning initiatives, and this year is no different,” says Dean Conwell, CDME executive director for the Beaumont CVB. “With only three submissions, our team came home with six awards. To me, that speaks volumes about the level of talent we have here at home.” 

The TACVB Idea Fair is held each year  as a part of the group’s annual conference, to help all Texas convention and visitors bureaus bring forth their best ideas and share them with colleagues. Projects are submitted into one of nine categories ranging from convention sales promotions to cooperative marketing initiatives. More than 250 destination marketing professionals and a team of judges vote for the winners. The ideas are judged based on originality, cost-saving strategies, visual appeal and implementation methods.

The Beaumont CVB won the People’s Choice for convention promotion, sports marketing and tourism promotion. They also took home the People’s Choice Overall in Tourism Promotion and Judges Choice awards for Convention Promotion & Sports Marketing.

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
