This year’s Oscars broke new ground, and, no, we’re not talking about the slap heard round the world. Some six months after it opened in September 2021, the Academy of Motion Pictures hosted the inaugural Oscars Night at the Museum. More than 1,000 guests attended the sold-out Oscars viewing part, beginning with a walk down the red carpet in their own version of pre-show glamour. 

 The evening provided a snapshot—make that countless snapshots—of what an event at the Academy Museum is like. Throughout the night guests captured their experience in photo booths that featured a 360° slow motion camera and a photo mosaic wall; enjoyed sets from DJs Mamabear and Lady C courtesy of dublab; explored the museum’s 50,000 square feet of galleries; accepted their own award in The Oscars® Experience in the East West Bank Gallery, and had an opportunity to shop for exclusive merchandise at the Academy Museum Store. The live broadcast was telecast in the museum’s state-of-the-art David Geffen Theater, hosted by TCM’s Dave Karger with emcees Chris and Vanessa Spencer, Tom Lenk, D'Lo, and Jesus Trejo performing during commercial breaks. Guests enjoyed bitrd from Wolfgang Puck Catering in the Sidney Poitier Grand Lobby in addition to offerings from local food vendors Vurger Guyz and Thai-Mex Cocina.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 


Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
