ALASKA

Gather in One of the Region’s Native Heritage Centers and Venues

The Northwest boasts a rich Native American history. From Alaska to Oregon, the nations and tribes native to our region are evident throughout our communities—from the art displayed in our museums, parks and neighborhoods to the names of local cities and destinations, such as Chelan, Klamath Falls, Denali, Nez Perce and Kelowna. Celebrate this cultural bounty by planning an event at a venue that honors the Northwest’s roots. Here are just a few to consider for your next gathering. 

Mountain Resorts can Take Your Next Meeting or Event to New Heights

Mount Hood, Schweitzer, Whistler, Denali—the Northwest does not want for spectacular mountain destinations. Not only do they provide a stunning setting in which to live, work and play, they also serve as a gorgeous backdrop for meetings and events. While these locales are notable winter playgrounds for snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, ice skating, sleigh riding and other activities, they are also outstanding options for groups in the warm summer months. Here are a few Northwest resorts that sit at the foot or at the top of some of our region’s favorite peaks.

Flashback: Historic Wilson Theatre Gets a Callback

Image: 

From the silent-movie era to a 21st-century renovation, the Historic Wilson Theatre of Rupert, Idaho, has witnessed nearly 100 years of history. After it opened in 1920, the theater became a central part of the community, hosting an array of events such as graduation ceremonies, stage productions, weddings, recitals and conferences. Its doors closed in the 1980s, and the building wouldn’t experience a revival until 2000, when it was acquired by the city of Rupert. 

Sister Cities Celebrates Global Connections Through Special Events or Business Meetings

Last year, Sister Cities International celebrated its 60th anniversary. The organization was founded as a result of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s People-to-People program. Eisenhower believed that cultural exchanges, youth programs, sharing arts and culture, and exchanging business ideas and research and development projects could foster bonds between people of different communities. Here in the Northwest, each of our major cities has a number of sister cities. Seattle, for example, has 21, while Portland, Oregon, has nine (and one friendship city).
