Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, is the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC), which is making magic all on its own.  

Already the West Coast’s largest convention center, spanning 1.8 million square feet, the Anaheim Convention Center can now also say that it is the recipient of Exhibitor Magazine’s 2020 Centers of Excellence award. The award honors North America’s best convention centers for trade shows and events, selecting 20 facilities to be recognized. 

In addition to receiving this award, ACC can look back on 2019 as a year of successes, many of which contributed to their award. From hosting a record-breaking 55 conventions and welcoming nearly 900,000 attendees to its opening of an additional 200,000 square feet of space, ACC has proven itself to be one of the top convention centers in the country.  

Demand for the ACC continues to grow, as seen through the destination’s six consecutive years of record-breaking growth. With a lively and supportive local community, world-class service, state-of-the-art accommodations, and endless dining and entertainment opportunities within walking distance, the award should only add to event planner’s confidence in working with the venue.  

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
