The Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro, Oregon, will be welcoming a new event and conference center this summer. The 89,000-square-foot Wingspan Event & Conference Center will provide year-round opportunities for large community gatherings. The center will include exposition space, a state-of-the-art conference center with a commercial kitchen, concessions, a large entry plaza, and an outdoor exhibit area that opens into the interior grounds of the fair complex. The new venue will offer various room configurations sized to accommodate consumer shows, conferences and trade shows, corporate meetings and seminars, banquets and receptions, fundraisers, festivals, spec- tator events and a variety of other community uses.

 

San Antonio wholesale grocer Edward Franz Melcher opened Hotel Havana in 1914 as a guest house for his customers. Melcher infused the building with a tropical allure through the use of Mediterranean Revival architecture. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located on the River Walk. In 2010, it came under the ownership of the hospitality organization Bunkhouse.

 

Highline, a 116-room modern mountain resort, opened its doors in west Vail just in time for the 2019/2020 ski season. An elevated cabin-in-the woods aesthetic flows throughout the property, from the A-frame communal lobby and restaurant to cozy guest rooms and spacious loft suites. The interior features weathered woods, slate and leather accents in a palette of soothing neutrals and region- ally inspired art and fixtures.
