Happiness, noted cartoonist Charles Schulz, is a warm puppy. To bring a little of that wetnosed joy to its travelers—and relieve much of the stress associated with airport travel— Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has launched its Less Airport Stress Initiative (LASI). The innovative program places YVR Ambassador Dogs throughout the terminal to interact with visitors and make their airport experience a little brighter.

YVR partnered with St. John Ambulance and their therapy dog program to provide seven dogs for LASI. The YVR Ambassador Dogs are accompanied by a dog handler and YVR Green Coat Volunteer, and are easily identifiable with their YVR-branded leashes and St. John Ambulance bandanas. So next time you’re dreading traffic, airport security checks and delays, just think about how you’ll also be able to spend a little quality puppy petting time, preboarding. If that doesn’t get you to the airport on time, nothing will. 

Mohegan Sun Pocono is excited to welcome you and has ample space and resources to make your next event a huge success! With property-wide safety and wellness initiatives, customizable menus, and physical-distancing floor plans, your guests will enjoy a first-class, in-person experience like never before.

 

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.
