Snapchat geofilters are now available at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.

Geofilters allow Snapchat users to inform their followers where and when they are someplace with a fun font to represent the area. Whether in a private video or picture to a friend, or on their public story, it’s a quirky way to let people know what you’re up to. Snapchat has recently made it possible for its users to create exclusive geofilters for their events and celebrations.

The filter design will be included in wedding packages and can also be added to group and meeting packages. Wedding and event planners can choose from available designs or even create their own concepts; the resort takes care of the rest.

Snapchat has quickly become  one of the most popular apps among smartphone users of all ages. More than 100 million people use the app daily, and Snapchat has more than 10 billion video views per day with an average of 9,000 photos shared on the app every second.

For the first time, all five boroughs of New York City are lighting up rainbow in celebration of WorldPride's first time being hosted in the United States. Additionally, NYC & Company and LGBT MPA are partnering to offer a MICE familiarization trip for LGBTQ+ meeting and event planners. 

 

IACC's 2019 Meeting Room of the Future Report reveals that sustainability is a top priority of meeting planners. Of those who responded to the survey, 44 percent said they believe that ethical operations and sustainable practices will be one of the most important elements for venues by 2024. A major concern of meeting planners is food waste, with 62 percent of respondents noting that they will consider how a venue manages food waste before booking.

 

Located near Austin, South Congress Hotel and Hotel Ella are positioned as the perfect summer venues. Each hotel has offerings for a wide array of events and can accommodate corporate and social functions alike.
