#FandDMag's COO David Korn caught up with friends from #SanJuan, #PuertoRico's Caribe Hilton at the Broken Shaker at Freehand New York. #Music (image 3) #food and other #Caribbean entertainment enlivened the evening.

Representing the revitalized beachfront resort property were the hotel's GM Pablo J. Torres (left) and Director of Public Relations Betty Gonzalez (center, image 2). Following a prolonged closure to completely update and overhaul the Caribe #Hilton after hurricane Maria, the property has seen a tremendous surge in activities. Torres reported that during his #meetings at #IMEX in September, #eventprofs/ #meetingprofs showed extensive interest in booking the hotel for their #events. Gonzalez relayed how the #tropical hotel has been buzzing non-stop since reopening in May.

Increased efforts to promote #sustainability are front and center in facilities such as the newly expanded Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA. In addition to the LEED Platinum certified facility's green roof and water recapture, recycling is in place, excess food is donated to local charities, food waste is composted.

We'll be taking a look at the City by the Bay in the Winter issue of #FandDmag.

#Savannah based @1970vodka's creator Ideka Feingold was on hand to describe her unique flavor infused #vodka during a #NewYorkCity #event celebrating the myriad of reasons to @visitsavannah this evening.
.

We enjoyed speaking to @billybartender, who gave us insight into the "1970" name - the #spirit has 19 ingredients, including fruits & botanicals and its base is a 70 proof vodka. (The original beverage had a "shochu" base, and was served as a celebratory cocktail by her Japanese grandmother prepared to honor of Ms. Feingold's birth in 1970.) While readily available in Savannah, its popularity is steadily on the rise and is now being distributed in Pennsylvania.
.

The #business #eventplanner will be interested to know that airlift from major cities, increasing hotel room inventory and the @savtcc expansion will make Savannah even more appealing for MICE #travel and #events.

#Business leads into leisure #Acapulco's @mihotelprincess. The #beachfront resort is notable for its main structure's #architecture, designed to look like an Aztec pyramid, and is a perennial favorite among #Mexican guests looking to start their weekends early.
.

Planners of corporate and incentive #meetings & #events will find the hotel has a broad array of options for #MICE groups. With over 1,000 rooms, that can accommodate groups large and small. In site the hotel has over 125,000 square feet of #meeting and #exhibition space, including its Diamante Exhibition Center. Its open-air spaces are favorites, allowing for a #tropical #ocean breezes. Also on site is an indoor #event space with a stage that can serve as an amphitheatre, and a and a 5,000 seat #tennis center that plays host to the @abiertotelcel Mexican Open Tennis tournament. Attendees can enjoy waterfront activities at the beach and/or the hotel's five #pools, #golf and tennis once their day is completed.

Standing 220 feet high in the heart #MexicoCity's downtown on a spacious plaza, the #Monument to the Revolution is said to be the world's largest "triumphal arch."

Initially intended to be the dome of a grandiose structure to house #Mexico's legislature, domestic politics including a civil war (known as the #Mexican Revolution) halted its #construction. Following a more modest redesign, the present structure houses a #museum with an observation deck and the site is the final resting place of a number of the leaders of the armed conflict.

Preparing for touchdown in #MexicoCity.

The greenery in view is Bosque de Chapultepec, home to a #zoo, castle from a short lived monarchy and series of world-class museums. In addition to the hotels lining the #park which have facilities for #meetings & #events in the Polanco and Reforma districts, #Mexico's capital is home to at least three venues that can host larger tradeshows - both near the city center and in expansions to the city like Santa Fe, which has become home to corporate parks, malls and modern residential towers.

With the last #summer #Sunday in the books, some scenes before #sunset from some of #Chicago's signature sites. Images, provided by our summer staff include:.

1. Grant Park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion, an outdoor performing #arts venue;
2. Navy Pier, home to Pier Park, the Centennial Wheel, great views of Lake Michigan, the city's towering #skyline and a multi-purpose venue that hosts a broad array of #meetings & #events, that included an evening function for ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition #ASAE18 and the recent EXPO CHICAGO;
3. Cloud Gate (#ChicagoBean) in Millennium Park; and

The plaza across from @theplazahotel (in view of the new #NYC @aman and footsteps from the @thepierreny) that houses the @apple store in #Manhattan's Midtown is set to reopen this Friday.
.

This afternoon, workers were putting finishing touches on the iconic #FifthAvenue address, closed and since 2017. The #glass cube entrance way in front of the #GMBuilding has been updated to allow for tinted coloring that can be illuminated at night. Skylights have been added to the plaza area allow for natural #light in the expanded underground store below. New Yorkers and #tourists alike will soon return en masse to the flagship store, particularly as new #Apple #iphone and other products come to market.

#ZionNationalPark

As noted in the previous post, a trend repeatedly noted during #FandDmag's #IMEX19 #meetings was an increased recognition by both #hotel groups and CVBs /DMOs to promote experiences outside of #meetings that enhance their #destination.

#Business travelers are more frequently choosing to extend their stays for regional #leisure experiences either on their own or for their #family #vacation. Indeed, on Instagram we are seeing a flurry of photos from nearby excursions taken by attendees from their post- #imexperience. In addition the richness of resources in Visit Las Vegas that include #gaming, #dining & word-class #entertainment, the city is surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty with nearby Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area - National Park Service. #LasVegas' McCarran International Airport, serves as a gateway to the National Park Service parks and recreation areas in #Utah, including Bryce Canyon National Park (see previous post) and Zion National Park (images).

One trend repeatedly noted throughout #FandDmag's #meetings during IMEX's incredibly successful #IMEX19 #LasVegas #event, was an increased recognition by both #hotel groups and CVBs /DMOs to promote themselves as much more than a #meetings #destination. Indeed, #business travelers are more frequently choosing to extend their stays for regional #leisure experiences.
.

As an example, while #LasVegas itself has a wealth of resources including #gaming, #dining & #entertainment, the city is surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty. In addition to the nearby Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area - National Park Service, #LasVegas serves as a gateway to #utah's National Park Service parks and recreation areas including Zion National Park & Bryce Canyon National Park (images).

The creativity behind the #art of @disney storytelling was celebrated at an #event concluding day 1 at #IMEX19. #Floral #design (image 4), an #artist (image 2) and @starwars imagineer joined senior Disney Meetings & Events cast members to describe the detail that goes into bringing concepts into reality onscreen, canvas and at #meetings & #events at #Disney - and #dessert (#cakepops, image 3).

#FanDmag's Fall 2019 issue, which debuted during IMEX/ Meeting Professionals International - MPI Smart Monday (and is available in the Media Zone at IMEX #LasVegas,) notes the creativity of the imagineering team at the new #GranDestinoTower at the Coronado Springs Resort in #Orlando's Walt Disney World campus.

Giant #coloringbook at #IMEX19/ @meetingprofessionalsintl #SmartMonday #education day kickoff. It will be fun to see this filled in at end of the day.
.

A trend that continues to take hold in the #eventprofs community is taking breaks from the stressful rigors of the day to clear one's mind as they #color. We first saw this at @pcmahq's Convening Leaders #CL16 event at @vanconventions. More recently, we saw a local #Miami #artist #design a coloring book for the @theconfidante in #MiamiBeach. The irony of the trend is we often find ourselves too busy and stressed to stop and take advantage of what the short break this simple activity is meant to provide.

#ThrowbackThursday to #SanFrancisco's #historic #cablecar terminus at Powell and Market Streets.

#Tourism, San Francisco's largest industry, generated record-breaking numbers in 2018 with more than 25.8 million people visiting the destination, spending in excess of $10 billion. #Business #travel & #events will continue to play a major factor in the City by the Bay, in part, thanks to the new @mosconecenter expansion that debuted earlier this year, which is being complimented by hotel growth in the surrounding area. #eventprofs can learn more about the City By The Bay next week at #IMEX19.
