The Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square is offering a new "Pick your Perks" group promotion to groups booking at least 20 room nights and that sign the contract before Dec. 31, 2017.

The Sheraton Pittsburgh offers 399 guest rooms with views of the Pittsburgh skyline and 30,000 square feet of meeting space, making up 26 meeting rooms. Groups that book with the Sheraton Pittsburgh before the end of 2017 are eligible for the "Pick Your Perks" promotion, where the number of perks available correspond with the amount of room nights booked. One perk is offered for booking 20-49 room nights; two perks for booking 50-100 room nights; three perks for booking 101-250 room nights and four perks for booking 251-500-plus room nights.

The perks include a complimentary hour-long cocktail reception with beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres, 10 VIP upgrades, 20 percent attrition, double points for the meeting planner, 10 percent off A/V rental and more.

“Offering first-class meeting facilities and accommodations, and an ideal location just steps from many great restaurants, entertainment venues, shops, and recreational options, the hotel is a terrific choice for groups,” says David Hume, director of sales and marketing. “We are offering the ‘Pick Your Perks’ promotion as an easy way for groups to choose the perks that will best suit their program’s needs.”

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.

 

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.
