To celebrate the New Year, Residence Inn by Marriott in West Orange, N.J., will offer three group-geared packages to peak interest in booking a meeting or wedding block at the hotel. The first package, the Meet and Thrive package, offers a 5 percent room rate discount for groups of 10 or more rooms. This package also includes 2,000 additional Marriott Reward Points and a complimentary AM/PM Coffee Break. The Meet and Thrive package is offered from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017. For small groups of 10 to 35, Residence Inn by Marriott West Orange is offering $100 credit voucher for booking a meeting and a free welcome amenity. This offer is valid from Jan. 1, 2017 through Apr. 1, 2017, with rates starting at $169 per night plus 15 percent tax. The last package is a wedding couples package and features a complimentary bridal suite when a rehearsal dinner and a block of rooms is booked. Availability and rates are the same as the small groups package. Residence Inn by Marriott in West Orange is a pet-friendly hotel that features 128 suites and 2,394 square feet of flexible meeting space. It is located 20 minutes from Manhattan and is in close proximity to Essex’s premier weeding venues, country clubs, historic sights and more.

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
