Select top-level meetings can now have access to the exclusive Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe. The club offers a secure and totally private venue for meetings that are personally curated and supported by dedicated planning, facilitating and hospitality services.
 
Located four miles inland from the coast in a secluded valley, the Del Mar Country Club is owned by philanthropist and businesswoman Madeleine Pickens. The 55,000-square-foot, castle-like clubhouse offers complete seclusion for up to 30 senior executives who wish to arrive, leave and remain “off camera” for the duration of their meetings and business activities at the club.
 
Inside, a variety of elegant boardrooms, meeting rooms and venues come with a full range of IT and support features. Outside, sporting facilities including an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts and almost Olympic-sized swimming pool are available for post-meeting recreation.

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.
