#FlashbackFriday - on this gray, snowy morning in #NYC, we looked for some color and found it in this work of #contemporary #art gracing the lobby of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. The curator noted that each panel, when viewed individually is virtually indistinguishable from the one next to it, yet together the work produces an entire spectrum of #color.

After contemplating the thought provoking #artwork, there are more though provoking reasons for #eventprofs/ #meetingprofs / #incentive #travel professionals to think #Jerusalem in the Fall 2018 issue of #FandDmag:https://issuu.com/facilitiesonline/docs/2018_f_d_fall/34?e=1111454/65100036

More on the Caesars Entertainment National Meetings and Events post on our Twitter feed -

Caesars Entertainment announced that over half a million room nights at Caesars Entertainment properties are pre-booked for groups at CAESARS FORUM for 2020 and beyond. The $375 million CAESARS FORUM #conference facility will feature 300,000 square-feet of flexible meeting space, including two 110,000 square-foot pillarless ballrooms, two 40,000 square-foot ballrooms and six state-of-the-art boardrooms.Touted as the first structure of this size built on one level, it will also feature FORUM Plaza, the first 100,000 square-foot dedicated outdoor meeting and event space in #LasVegas.

Caesars Entertainment has booked over $150 million in conference business for CAESARS FORUM, with over 70 contracts signed, some with multiple years. With diverse industries from education to fashion, technology, telecom, sports, entertainment, wine & spirits and wellness, attendance will range from 500 to 8,000 attendees from all over the U.S.

Of interest to #sports #travel planners, the space is equivalent in size to twenty-seven tennis courts or three ice hockey rinks. With the recent trend of convention centers hosting a broad array of indoor sporting #events including #tennis, #foosball, #gymnastics and #volleyball to name but a few, the new facility will be a hub of activity in the center of Las Vegas for years to come.

With Bernie Sanders & others announcing their candidacy for #POTUS, good times ahead are guaranteed.

There will be much political discourse that is supposed to make America great; #news channels will have more material to report, comedians & actors on Saturday Night Live and other late night talk shows will have more jokes as editors and producers push their interests in a non-partisan unbiased manner. Sarcasm aside, rallies mean #business for #facilities & #destinations around USA.

No longer overlooked: Cleveland’s Huntington Convention Center sees continued growth

After five full years of operation, #Cleveland’s convention center is hitting its stride, attracting an increasing number of events, visitors and overnight stays in 2018.

This is Cleveland Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland Hilton Cleveland Downtown #eventprofs #meetingprofs

Bypassed for years by meeting and convention planners, Cleveland had some work to do to convince industry insiders that the city was ready for a second look. It appears that work is paying off, with consistent growth year-over-year in events, visitors and room nights.

01/30/2019

Caesars Entertainment announced plans for its first non-gaming #hotel In the U.S. with its new "Caesars Republic" brand; ground breaking for Caesars Republic Scottsdale is slated for the second half of 2019. This follows up on Caesars plans last year to develop a non-gaming Caesars Palace resort along the coast of Puerto #LosCabos, #Mexico and a series of beachfront #luxury resorts on Meraas' Bluewaters Island in #Dubai.

"Caesars Republic Scottsdale represents the introduction of a new world-class brand and further progress on our strategy to expand our non-gaming business into premier destinations," said Caesars Entertainment President and Chief Executive Officer, Mark Frissora. "This project will be our first non-gaming asset in the United States and demonstrates the global strength of the Caesars brand."

The property will be an 11 story glass structure with 266 rooms, centrally located within walking distance of the state's "most elegant" mall. Plans call for a first-floor bar and restaurant, the latter with an abundance of outdoor patio seating and "fantastic views of Camelback Mountain." Caesars' press release also noted that the "most stunning" part of Caesars Republic Scottsdale will be the 7th floor, encompassing a #rooftop pool and bar - the only rooftop pool in #Scottsdale - featuring breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain that can serve as private event space for exclusive groups or company events.

Of interest to the #eventplanner, a 7,000-square foot column-free ballroom with 34-foot sliding glass doors will open out onto an adjacent lawn, allowing for outdoor #events for up to 600 people. The ballroom, divisible into four sections, can accommodate banquets up to 500 and will have modern LED lighting elements to allow planners to change shades of ceiling light.

On the second floor there will be five breakout rooms which will accommodate up to 40 people each or can be opened for events up to 200. The second-floor will also have an executive board room capable of seating 16 at its "permanent table." In addition to #meeting and #event space, the hotel will have an 11th floor bridal suite and five luxury entertainment suites for #wedding parties and other groups.

Today, #SanFrancisco's Moscone Center completed a $551 Million expansion, adding 157,000 square feet of usable space, bringing the facility's total space to approximately 505,000 square feet of contiguous space. The new space includes a 49,776 square foot column-free ballroom. City officials, #tourism industry leaders and other dignitaries convened at the site, to celebrate and tour the new structure. (Image)

“With the completion of the Moscone Center expansion, San Francisco is taking a major step to support and expand our tourism industry, while also serving residents in the surrounding area,” said Mayor Breed (image, second from right). “This state of the art facility exemplifies our commitment to sustainability, creates new flexible-use convention and tourism spaces, and supports the neighborhood with a host of new design and open-space improvements.”

“It is important that San Francisco stay competitive with expanded and upgraded convention facilities. This project has achieved that,” said San Francisco Travel Association president & CEO Joe D'Alessandro (image, center).

#FandDmag will visit the new convention center later this month.
