• Exhibitor Honors Anaheim Convention Center

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.  

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
