On Aug. 24, the Crowne Plaza Princeton, N.J., debuted the Lakeside Terrace a new wedding venue that resides on the property.

The venue went under a five-month, $1 million renovation and features a ballroom with modern decor and windows allow for natural light and overlook the lake. Conveniently, it offers both indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions. On-site planners can help coordinate all events.

The Crowne Plaza Princeton is managed by an operating affiliate of GF Management, a hospitality ownership and management company based in Philadelphia with hotels across the country.

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses. 

 

After 7 years of planning, the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center is now open in downtown Muskegon. The official ribbon cutting took place on April 12, 2021.  

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
