From April 22 through Oct. 29, Dale Chihuly will host his first major garden art exhibition in New York in more than 10 years at the New York Botanical Garden.

Bank of America is presenting the exhibition, which will showcase 20 installations and include drawings and early works that reveal the evolution and development of Chihuly’s artistic process through his career. The vistas feature Chihuly’s signature shapes in vibrant colors.

Weekend celebrations, films, poetry and art programs for kids will feature colorful and imaginative tributes to nature. On CHIHULY Nights the artworks will be illuminated against NYBG’s vistas and conservatory.

NYBG is known as one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world, totaling 250 acres. NYBG is 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan in the Bronx and can be accessible via public transportation.

The Grand Hyatt New York partnered with NYBG to provide visitors with a lodging and admission package. Connected to Grand Central Station, Grand Hyatt New York provides easy access to NYBG. Features of this package include 10 percent on certain rooms, roundtrip tickets for two to NYBG, admission tickets for two to CHIHULY and shopping and dining discounts at NYBG.

The Metro-North Railroad is offering a package for visitors as well that includes an All-Garden Pass and a round-trip train ticket from Grand Central Terminal to the Botanical Garden Station in just 20 minutes. Visit Metro-North Railroad for more details.

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
