The event will be open to all businesses in Southwest Colorado and anyone interested in destination marketing and the Colorado tourism industry. Topics will range from digital marketing and social media for businesses to sustainable tourism and crisis communication.

The Durango area is Southwest Colorado's premier four-season destination with more than 600,000 annual visitors. Registration costs $75, which includes two full days of networking events and educational sessions, a welcome reception with drinks and appetizers, and breakfast, a hot lunch buffet and a cookie/coffee bar served daily.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
