With the growing popularity of Death Valley National Park, a new destination marketing organization known as Destination: Death Valley Junction has been created. Ironically, Death Valley Junction, just east of the national park, has a population of fewer than four people but features both natural and man-made places to become immersed in the landscape, 19 bookable lodging properties and various tour options.

Stargazing, photography, hiking, exploring and wildflower viewing are among the most popular activities, and The Oasis at Death Valley, the region’s largest resort, and the National Park Service have taken measures to greatly minimize area light pollution. Because of this, Death Valley National Park is designated as a Gold Tier Dark Sky Park, the highest level awarded by the International Dark Sky Association. 

Located in Oregon’s wine country, The Allison Inn and Spa is offering some new team-building options for meeting planners. Experiences include:

» Smith Teas Tasting: Claire Boyer, Smith Teamaker’s head of education, offers a hands-on class uncovering the exotic world of tea.

» Lotion Blending: Awaken the senses and heighten creativity with a hands-on lotion and essential oil-blending workshop.

 

The International Floral Distributors each year teams up with Produce Marketing Association and a designer to create the “Flower Trends Forecast.” For 2020, the organization enlisted Helen Miller, AIFD, CAFA, CF, and Derek Woodruff, AIFD, CFD, CF, PFCI, AAF. Miller owns Flowers & Such in Adrian, Michigan. Her work has been showcased in publications such as Floral Management, Florists Review, and The Knot.

 

The Pacific Northwest is now home to a new and unique subterranean event space: The Sanctuary at The Society Hotel Bingen in Bingen, Washington. This one-of-a-kind dome-shaped building is tucked into a hillside in the northeast corner of the hotel property, which is located in the Columbia River Gorge.

The Sanctuary is now accepting reservations for wellness retreats and private groups for yoga, meditation, qigong, musical performances, sound healing, dance parties and more.
