It’s not that common for a destination marketing organization to oversee several of the largest meeting and event venues in community. Visit Reno Tahoe is the exception and recently announced it has officially taken over the management of Reno-Sparks Convention CenterReno Events CenterNational Bowling Stadium, and Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center

Visit Reno Tahoe, also known as the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, was established in 1959 to promote convention and tourism business in Washoe County, which includes Reno, Sparks, and North Lake Tahoe. The organization owns and operates the Reno-Sparks Convention Center and is once again overseeing operations at the state-owned Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center and city-owned Reno Events Center and National Bowling Stadium, all of which were under a third-party management agreement since July 2018.

The first post-transition event taking place in Reno Tahoe was the 90th annual meeting of the United States Conference of Mayors on June 3-6, with an evening event held at the recently upgraded National Bowling Stadium.

After more than 18 years working in management, maintenance, and operations at the four Visit Reno Tahoe-managed facilities, Trent LaFerriere has been promoted to vice president of facilities. In this role, LaFerriere is responsible for budgeting, operations, staffing, maintenance, safety, compliance, and capital expenditures. He also oversees the management agreement with Aramark, which was recently awarded the food services contract. 

When scheduling free-time options for groups around a busy meeting agenda, it is helpful to have a hotel partner that has a menu of activities at the ready. Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, not only has more than 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor gathering space and ski-in/ski-out access to Deer Valley Resort, planners can book four memorable experiences.

 

As the weather cools down and snow blankets expansive landscapes, Wyoming transitions into a winter wonderland for all types of travelers. The Cowboy State offers a wide range of year-round experiences for groups, including several new and notable options.

 

Springboard Hospitality has announced the hiring of Anthony Moody as general manager and Nicholas Davies as executive chef of The Yarrow, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Park City in Utah.
