In the still of their opening night, the Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md., welcomed 3,000 guests all who were on their feet the entire night as Boyz II Men performed their famous hits.

“The atmosphere and vibe inside the theater last night was amazing,” says Bill Boasberg, general manager, MGM National Harbor. “We can’t thank Boyz II Men enough for a tremendous show and partnership over the years. The fans were on their feet the entire evening and dancing to every song. We have a sensational entertainment lineup scheduled in the weeks ahead and anticipate more exciting evenings at The Theater.”

Throughout the night, the group performed their biggest hits like “Motownphilly,” “I’ll Make Love To You,” “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” and “End of the Road,” Motown classics and songs from their latest album Collide.

The theater has VIP suites with a range of amenities, including a private suite entrance, a VIP lobby with a full-service bar, personalized catering offers and more. The three center suites can even be combined into one large event space for up to 200 guests.

Next year, the venue will host Bruno Mars, Ricky Martin, Sting, Lionel Richie and Kings of Leon.

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.
