This July, New York City’s trendiest borough, Brooklyn, will see the addition of the Hotel Indigo Williamsburg

The upscale hotel boasts the largest amount of event space in Williamsburg with more than 20,000 square feet throughout the 187-room property.  

In addition to the space, a vibrant energy permeates throughout the hotel thanks to its contemporary architecture, sleek interior design, a dual-level restaurant with a full-service Kosher kitchen, outdoor courtyard and pool spaces, and a sundeck that overlooks the Manhattan skyline.  

For events, the largest spaces accommodate a maximum of 1,000 guests, however, the flexible event space is able to cater everything from corporate or social events to weddings. And for event planners, Hotel Indigo’s meeting spaces are able to be configured into 11 types of setups.  

When not at events at the hotel, guests are just steps from Williamsburg’s best nightlife, shopping, restaurants and art scene. With so much around, inside and out, Hotel Indigo is sure to be a great addition to the Williamsburg neighborhood.  

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.
