Members of the International Special Events Society (ISES) Denver Chapter relaxed and networked in the “safe house” before being divided into five “families” for a Godfather-themed culinary meeting on August 26. The families battled to come up with the perfect crostini topping but only after all weapons were checked at the door of Italian-inspired Baldoria on the Water in Lakewood. An outline of a body on the floor, flickering candles in rock-hewn alcoves and crime tape helped set the stage. 

Ski areas around Colorado are introducing several new amenities and events to elevate the guest and group experience. Here are a few highlights from Ski Country USA.

 

Several organizations are collaborating on events from January through August 2019 for “celebrate bauhaus100: aspen,” which commemorates the impact of the Bauhaus art movement on Aspen. The theme “Our Legacy, Our Future/WorkPlay-Create” reflects Aspen’s Bauhaus heritage, primarily as it relates to Herbert Bayer, who was a student and a teacher at the Bauhaus, relocated to Aspen in 1946 to design the Aspen Institute and lived in the community until 1976.

 

The National Association of Catering & Events gathered on Sept. 11 at the Denver Botanic Gardens to commemorate the NACE’s 10th anniversary and provide a glimpse into the future. A panel of several founding members—Monica Cheeks of Hyatt Hotels, Cal Cheney of All Digital Photo & Video, Amanda Michalek of AORN and Brandi Pressgrove of Reckon Creative—discussed how the chapter got started, favorite programs from the past and how networking through NACE has helped grow their businesses and more.
