• Marquee Sports & Entertainment Host Media Tour

Marquee Sports & Entertainment hosted a tour of the American Airlines Conference Center for the media on July 13. The tour showcased the conference center's amenities and customizable event spaces and featured a food sampling following the tour.

The American Airlines Conference Center is 5,300 square feet and is ideal for private meetings, networking events and receptions. There are four flexible event spaces and an outdoor terrace overlooking the Park at Wrigley.

The food sampling event took place in the Home Plate Room and included a pretzel station, doughnut sundae bar, "Make Your Own Chicago Dog," salads and more.

The SaaS platform, Wix.com, has released a new builder for business owners, planners and venue operators to create customized seating maps. Users can also assign ticket pricing based on the location of individual seats, and any variation of seating can be mapped, including tables, rows of seats, areas with general seating (e.g., a standing-room-only area), reserved VIP sections, or a combination of options.

 

If the early registration numbers for IPW, the annual international trade show of the U.S. Travel Association, are an indication, global hospitality professionals are ready to return to the United States. By the end of March, more than two months ahead of the June 4-8 gathering in Orlando, Florida, registrations by international buyers and media had nearly doubled last year’s delegate count.
