Atlantic City, N.J., has had a fantastic year, especially with regards to sports, and they are now reaping the awards of their hard work.

SportsEvents Media Group—an industry publication that focuses on providing support to sports event planners producing competitions across the country—announced Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission as one of its 2016 Readers’ Choice Award winners.

Readers nominated destinations and sports venues they believe display exemplary creativity and professionalism with regards to the groups they host. The magazine received nominations throughout the year; top picks were selected based on results from an online voting system.

SportsEvents readers came out in force to nominate and then to vote for their favorite sports events destinations and the host organizations that represent them,” says Carrie O’Connor, the magazine’s editorial coordinator. “Our team is proud to honor the nominees that received the most votes with a 2016 Readers’ Choice Award.”

Winners will be announced in the January 2016 issue of the magazine.

“It is clear, based on our readers’ experiences, that these awards winners are willing to go above and beyond typical service levels to help sports event planners produce outstanding events that participants, their families and spectators will want to experience again and again,” says O’Connor. “It is our privilege to announce their selection by sports events planners as among the best in the United States.”

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
