The Stella Hotel, located in Bryan-College Station, Texas, is slated to open in March 2017. The 180,000-square-foot property will offer retail, restaurant and outdoor options, along with a 5-acre lake and 2 miles of hiking and biking trails.

Designed by FAB studio and Design DMU, the new luxury hotel will combine a modern design with the traditional aesthetic of the Texas countryside. The 176-room hotel will also have modern, luxurious amenities, with views of the Texas landscape, to create a calm and relaxing experience for their guests.

“The beauty of The Stella’s design is in its simplicity,” says Peggy Trott, The Stella’s general manager. “While chic and welcoming, you can still put your feet up.”

The Stella will also offer great food and drink options. Campfire is the restaurant at the hotel, and will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To go along with Campfire is Hershel’s, a bar that will offer craft cocktails, whiskey, wines, and craft beers. The Stella will also offer a poolside bar with cabanas and lounge chairs for guests looking to catch some sun. Furthermore, just a short walk away is a café that offers coffee, draft beers, and wine.

To top it all off, The Stella features 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and 12,000 square feet of outdoor space. For more information, visit thestellahotel.com.

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
