The widely recognized Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa, & Convention Center of Branson, Missouri, has captured the coveted “Best of MidAmerica Award” from Meetings Today magazine. Readers of the magazine determined recipients of the award, voting on a handful of the top MidAmerica meeting sites based off of quality of meeting space, guest rooms, services and amenities, food and beverage offerings, staff, availability of technical equipment, recreational facilities and activities, and overall experience.

Overlooking the Ozark Mountains and scenic Table Rock Lake, the picturesque resort offers an unmatched experience for meetings and events. The 301-room resort stands as one of the largest convention centers in southwest Missouri, offering 43,500 square feet of flexible meeting space that can hold anywhere from 10 to 3,000 people. The lobby of the hotel itself holds an impressive 31,500 square foot Grand Ballroom used as additional meeting space. A handful of outdoor venues including outdoor fire pits, tennis courts, expansive grass areas, and a full-service marina offering various watercraft rentals and outdoor activities are also available at the resort.

This award follows a number of past recognitions the resort has received, including “#1 Best Missouri Resort” and “#1 Best Branson Hotel or Resort” by U.S. News and World Report in its prestigious “2019 Best Hotels” rankings for the second year in a row. Earlier this year, the resort received the highly renowned “Readers’ Choice Award” from ConventionSouth magazine, as well as the AAA Four Diamond Rating for the 21st consecutive year in a row.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
