If you’ve braved crossing Vancouver’s iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge (I have!) and are looking for a new challenge, Whistler opened its new 427-footlong (give or take a half inch) suspension bridge this summer—the Cloudraker Skybridge—and it’s a doozy. Located at the peak of Whistler Mountain, the bridge is at an elevation of approximately 7,200 feet above sea level, making it one of the highest elevated suspension bridges in the world. The bridge will be open in the summer (and to skiers and snowboarders in the winter) and includes a viewing platform with 360-degree, picture-perfect views. 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

Meet and stay to play in Redmond, Washington.

 

For a destination meeting or incentive trip, consider Whistler, British Columbia.
