Much like Oprah’s infamous reveal of free cars to those in her audience in 2004, Marilyn Denis—host of The Marilyn Denis Show—made an exciting announcement.

During her show—based in Canada—Denis explained she would give a Pittsburgh Getaway Package to all 75 audience members. Coordinated by VisitPittsburgh, the gift culminated Denis’ annual “10 Days of Giveaway” series.

The package feature two nights at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel and free airline travel to and from Pittsburgh International Airport courtesy of Porter Airlines Inc.

"The Toronto market is a very important one for us, and we jumped at the opportunity to reach Marilyn Denis' audience," says Matthew Sterne, general manager of the Four Diamond Fairmont Pittsburgh. "We love Marilyn's Pittsburgh connection and know that she is a trusted source in Canada. We also know that visitors need only experience Pittsburgh once to understand what makes our city so special, and we look forward to welcoming these guests to Fairmont Pittsburgh."

The Pittsburgh prize package, which can be redeemed anytime during 2016, also includes complimentary meals and entry fees to some of Pittsburgh’s most unique restaurants and attractions, including:

  • The Andy Warhol Museum 
  • Duquesne Incline 
  • National Aviary 
  • Pittsburgh Tours and More
  • Monterey Bay Restaurant 
  • Church Brew Works 
  • Pamela’s Diner 
  • Primanti Brother's Restaurant 
  • Welcome PITTSBURGH Information Center and Gift Shop 

"This will generate excellent exposure for our city, provide an opportunity for us to share the Pittsburgh story with The Marilyn Denis Show viewers across Canada and to show why our city is being called 'cool,' 'hip' and a 'Must-See Place to Visit,'" says Craig Davis, president/CEO of VisitPittsburgh. "The Marilyn Denis Show wanted their audience to experience some of Marilyn's favorite Pittsburgh restaurants and attractions and to see things that that you can only find in Pittsburgh, and we look forward to welcoming her fans to our city next year."

Visit Newport Beach released its new marketing campaign highlighting the destination management organization’s dedication to the small meetings market. Debuted at the 2019 IMEX America show, the concept focuses specifically on the planner and the VIP treatment that they can expect from Visit Newport Beach and the city’s hospitality community.

 

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.  

The redesign includes more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space alongside a maximum capacity of 2,500 people. The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.  

 

Sportsmen's Lodge recently revealed its newly renovated pool. Known as the largest pool in San Fernando Valley, the Sportsmen's Lodge pool is an attraction to guests and locals alike.

"We are always looking for ways to improve the guest and visitor experience, and since the pool is our most popular amenity, we like to keep it fresh and update it every couple of years," says General Manager Stephen Chavez.
