The Expo Hall at last week’s Springtime Expo was packed with excitement from the moment I descended the escalators and had my first peek.
Your eyes are not playing tricks on you – yes, that is a massage station on the right hand side! By the end of the day, there was quite a line of attendees and exhibitors looking forward to a few moments of pampering.
The ConventionPlanit Booth was full of excitement, with many of our staff popping in and out throughout the day.
Later in the day, I left the booth intent on discovering the most unique booth displays and visiting with our member facilities, destinations and service providers, who did not disappoint with their displays!
Team San Jose‘s booth was as welcome as an oasis in a desert. They were clever enough to include a cell phone charging station, complete with bottles of water and fresh flowers! Needless to say, their booth was quite popular.
The National Conference Center‘s booth staff was as friendly and welcoming as can be – and we couldn’t help but appreciate their great coordinated outfits! Located in Leesburg, Virginia, the venue boasts a 265,000 square foot live and learn facility, a challenging ropes course, team games and more, only a short distance from Washington, DC.
The Tropicana Las Vegas, a Doubletree by Hilton had much to celebrate in their booth. The hotel is the recent recipient of several Best of Las Vegas awards, including Best Hotel Rooms, Best Hotel Room Value, Best Hotel Suites, and many more!
Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) had the most inviting looking sitting area with custom pillows. The perfect spot to take a load off before journeying down the Luxury Lane of ALHI properties present at the show. ps – learn about their latest Caribbean luxury properties in our recent article!
Howard County, Maryland was well represented at the show, and had the benefit of promoting a destination that is a short distance from Washington, DC, giving it great appeal for meeting consideration from the local attendees.
The show floor was full of exciting displays. There were 468 booths in total – no wonder the planners were worn out by the end of the day!
