Twenty additional historic hotels have been nominated and accepted into the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Historic Hotels of America program, which includes properties ranging in age from 52 to 246 years old. Two that fall within Mountain Meetings’ coverage area include the Fairmont Olympic in Seattle, Washington and Alpenhof Lodge in Teton Village, Wyoming. In 1924 when the Seattle hotel opened, The Seattle Times held a contest offering $50 for the best name, resulting in 3,906 entries submitted and 11 entries combined into one name: The Olympic. Alpenhof Lodge was the first lodge built in Teton Village and has preserved its Bavarian heritage style. Historic Hotels of America has more than 300 historic hotels in 46 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. 

Salt Lake City, Denver and Boise are three shining examples from the U.S. Mountain West.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
