Downtown Portland, Oregon’s newest meeting and event space, The Corner, is located inside of Mother’s Velvet Lounge & Café. Available for private gatherings, business meetings, seminars, conferences and team-building, the venue offers two packages: the basic space rental for alcohol- and food-free meetings and events, and full space rental, which includes a fully stocked bar.

Napa Valley’s Meritage Resort & Spa recently debuted a new program designed to help groups gathering at the resort achieve more “Mindful Meetings.” The program, offered in partnership with Bare Health, can be custom tailored for groups and includes the following wellness-focused activities: meditation, yoga in the vineyard, sound healing, and the creation of juices, smoothies and morning elixirs at the resort’s brand-new Food & Wine Center.

 

After continually hearing that meeting planners were looking to infuse more health, wellness and sustainability into their agendas, Hilton Hotels & Resorts created Meet with Purpose in 2015. As it has evolved, the turnkey program—and its focus on Mindful Eating, Mindful Meeting and Mindful Being—has been increasingly customized to reflect each hotel and each meeting.

 

The Twin Cities’ culinary scene is more diverse than ever.
