While the political arena already seems to be in every facet of our lives, Hilton Milwaukee City Center is ready to bring it into the hospitality industry.

In 2020, the Hilton Milwaukee City Center will be serving as the Democratic National Convention Headquarters. As the city’s largest hotel, the Milwaukee Hilton features 729 guestrooms and more than 33,000 square feet of meeting rooms, facilities, banquet halls, boardroom venues and event space, with the largest maximum capacity for a single room set at 1,500 reception-style.

Built in 1927, the hotel is chock-full of American history and culture, specifically through its interior design. Through chandeliers and a gorgeous bar, the lobby gives visitors a taste of the roaring twenties. Additionally, the hotel swiftly incorporates modern amenities with its historical aesthetic, such as a skywalk to the Wisconsin Center convention and expo space.

Inside, guests will have access to healthy food & beverage options, as well as have the opportunity to say hello to the hotel’s Canine Concierge, Millie, a three-year-old mini Goldendoodle. Guests can also explore food and activities in the nearby downtown Milwaukee area.

Whether it will be at the 2020 DNC or a personal stay at the hotel, anyone visiting the Hilton Milwaukee City Center will surely be treated to an immaculate space, convenient location, incredible service, and catering to any of your needs.

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.
