This year, Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa has been named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s top four resorts in Colorado and top nine in the Western United States.  

Since last year, Devil’s Thumb Ranch has moved up in its ranking on this list, largely because of the resort’s passion and commitment to sustainability and its dedicated employees and the service they provide to guests. Additionally, its location only adds to the Devil’s Thumb’s authentic nature. Located in the Rocky Mountains, guests can take in a view of the Continental Divide and thousands of acres of untamed wilderness.  

Inside, the hotel is decorated in a rustic, yet elegant, Western decor. Additionally, guests can participate in a variety of Western-themed team-building activities, such as lassoing, hatchet throwing, and horseback riding. After such jam-packed days, enjoy a pasture-to-plate culinary experiences that includes the resorts own onsite produce.  

Going forward, Devil’s Thumb Ranch hopes to continue to create authentic Colorado experiences while maintaining the beauty and pristine nature of the land. New experiences for guests are set to include concerts, wellness retreats, outdoor adventures, painting and photography workshops, and more.

A prime site for conventions, trade shows and exhibitions, the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) recognizes that it has a unique opportunity to impact the lives of millions of guests and community members that step through its doors every year. That’s why the center has recently collected and donated 14.1 tons of remaining event items and 12 tons of carpet to various Los Angeles-based nonprofit organizations, in alignment with their commitment to zero-waste initiatives.

 

As with most facets of the meetings and events industry, the art of managing an event budget is a true balancing act. And while it’s easy to get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, Eventbrite revealed a pleasant surprise in its 2018 Pulse Report (which surveyed 1,200 planners), finding that event budgets overall appear to be on the rise. But where exactly are those budget dollars going these days and how can planners best spend to craft memorable moments?

 

According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, about 1.5 million Illinois workers are employed in the food and fiber system, ranking it as one of the top states in dependency on agriculture. The state’s 72,500 farms utilize 75 percent of Illinois land, including some of the most fertile soil in the world. While nicknamed “The Prairie State,” Illinois is truly a land of plenty and a hub for agritourism—with some of the largest agriculture-focused events (holding the potential for major economic impact) taking place inside its borders.
