Exhibit and sponsorship management services with begin with the 2018 show, taking place in Phoenix.

“TMS has a rich 146-year history and continues to evolve with its member base and changing technologies. It is exciting to have a dynamic client with such an extensive reach in the scientific and engineering communities,” says Carly DiVito, longtime Corcoran show manager who will oversee the exhibit sales and management program for TMS. “We at Corcoran are looking forward to a great partnership.”

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
