Piazza della Famiglia, a new outdoor event venue, joins San Diego’s Little Italy with a grand 10,000-square-foot European-style piazza. The Italian-inspired venue spans one city block and is sure to charm with its views of the San Diego Bay and 25-foot tiled fountain with up-lighting.

The new venue flaunts 7,400 square feet of event space, a three-tiered fountain with programmable flights, programmable overhead festoon lights, overhead mono speaker system, semi-private restrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi. At the property’s west end, a closed pedestrian corridor opens up to Little Italy’s iconic main street while its east end is illuminated by the 25-foot-by-25-foot fountain.

“The Piazza della Famiglia is the picture-perfect setting for any occasion whether it’s a small gathering or an elaborate evening extravaganza. There are not many outdoor venues available in Downtown San Diego and this space adds value to the City with its amazing ambiance that it provides guests,” says Curt Brooker, director of Little Italy Events.

Piazza della Famiglia’s location allows for many unique dining options. Restaurants available for events include the Little Italy Food Hall, a social dining concept; Cupcake Wars winner Audrey Hermes’ Frost Me Cafe; Farmer’s Table; and Morning Glory, a new brunch destination. The venue holds an alcoholic beverage license and allows for custom catering. The experienced Little Italy venues team will facilitate bookings with Piazza della Famiglia.

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

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.
