GTR Earns Wine Spectator Honors

Grand Traverse Resort & Spa’s 16th-floor restaurant overlooks gorgeous sunsets and features one of the best aerial views in northern Michigan. Unless, that is, you’re lucky enough to view the Straits of Mackinac from atop the soaring Mackinac Bridge towers … but it’s sans food and beverage there.

 

That’s why GTR’s 16th floor always topped my go-to list of great northern Michigan venues for meetings and small events back in the day when I was planning lots of business-related activities.

Teachers Head to Atlantic City

Today and tomorrow, the Atlantic City Convention Center is welcoming more than 45,000 teachers and educational professionals for the 2015 New Jersey Education Association Convention.

The association hosts this event yearly for members to network with fellow industry professionals and further themselves in their education-based knowledge through more than 300 seminars, workshops and programs.

Continuing Your Education as an Industry Pro

Anyone working in the meetings and events industry likely will tell you that nothing beats expe-rience for honing your skills. But the pros also will tell you that education can’t be beat, either. “What always strikes me, being an event manager and working with planners and others who execute events, is it’s plain to see the difference in those who take part in continuing education,” says Jennifer Berkemeier, catering and special events sales man-ager at Cobo Center.
