Copley Square Hotel looks forward to an exciting summer as it announces its first-ever summer event series. The series will welcome guests to the property’s new Art Square Gallery pop-up. Located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, the boutique hotel plans to kick off the summer fun with Boston-based artist, Nedret Andre’s Ocean Life show. 

The hotel’s recently opened meeting space, Art Square, and its new annex, the Art Square Gallery, represent the area’s history and allow local artists to showcase their work. The Art Square Gallery is available to hotel guests as well as the general public. 

Ocean Life, the gallery’s first exhibit will open on Thursday, June 13 from 5-7 p.m. Andre’s seagrass-inspired abstract art will be accompanied by a presentation from Tay Evans, a marine fisheries biologist, who will elaborate upon the threat to seagrass and current conservation efforts. Featuring pieces like "Oyster Beds" and "Low Tide Scallops," Andre and the gallery’s first event hope to portray the ecosystem’s beauty and importance. 

Guests have the chance to paint like a pro at the Art Square Gallery’s second summer series event. On Thursday, July 18, guests are invited to a printmaking and painting workshop with Andre followed by a presentation from Julie Simpson, a coastal aquatic ecologist with the MIT Sea Grant College Program in the Marine Advisory Services group. 

In celebration of Copley Square Hotel’s first-ever summer event series, hotel guests who attend one of the events are offered a special discounted rate. Although it is required to RSVP to each event, Andre’s Ocean Life exhibit will be on display at the Art Square Gallery through September. 

With summer weather year round, Carmel Valley Ranch is taking full advantage by cultivating a summer camp style environment that’s perfect for everything from corporate meetings to spectacular outdoor weddings.  

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains on California’s Central Coast, Carmel Valley Ranch occupies 500 acres. Amongst all of this, they offer nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 30,000 square feet of outdoor space.  

 

Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

 

For the first time, all five boroughs of New York City are lighting up rainbow in celebration of WorldPride's first time being hosted in the United States. Additionally, NYC & Company and LGBT MPA are partnering to offer a MICE familiarization trip for LGBTQ+ meeting and event planners.
