Furthering and sustaining the hospitality industry is dependent on the students working to get into the field today. Without them, the future is shaky.

To help these students gain the education they need to truly succeed, the Greater Atlantic City Concierge Association and Casino Reinvestment Development Authority Foundation created a partnership to award scholarships for education in the hospitality industry and promote its value.

The scholarships are available to students from Stockton University, Atlantic Cape Community College and Fairleigh Dickinson University are eligible to apply; scholarships will be awarded in May, 2016.

Every year, the GACCA and CRDA hold a fundraising event, the Feb. 6 At the Shore Wine Tasting Art Show, with proceeds going to the CRDA Foundation. The organization then awards scholarships to local college students at the annual Host Awards in May.

The scholarships acknowledge and reward academically successful students who are studying subjects related to the hospitality and tourism industry. It is specifically designed to acknowledge students that excel in their studies, have chosen the hospitality industry, and who also have demonstrated a unique ability to reach out to others through personal initiatives.

A volunteer committee of members from the Greater Atlantic City Concierge Association and the CRDA Foundation will select the award recipients through a criteria selection form that uses a point system for compliance. The selection committee and their family members are ineligible for scholarships. Award payment will be sent directly to the attending college for the purpose of tuition and tuition-related expenses.

Applications are now available on the CRDA Foundation website. The deadline for to apply is March 4, 2016.

Larger communities host citywides, while mountain resorts are more about “villagewides.” Taking this concept to heart, Beaver Creek has introduced a new collaborative website to help meeting planners envision multi-venue and multi-hotel meetings and events for groups of 150 to 1,500 guests at the Colorado ski resort and to submit RFPs. 

 

Colorado’s Meeting and Events Incentive Program was introduced to assist in the state’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. As an added bonus, it also will help groups get back into the practice of meeting face-to-face. Here’s a brief overview to help determine if your gathering might qualify.

How Does It Work?

 

The first property of the Limelight Hotel brand, Limelight Hotel Aspen has undergone a full makeover and will begin welcoming guests back at the start of the 2021/22 ski season in November 2021. Located next to Wagner Park in downtown Aspen, the upgrades include all 126 guestrooms and suites and public spaces such as the Limelight Lounge, conference room, lobby and bar. Guests and groups will notice a new arrival experience, expanded seating for dining, and relocation of the lounge’s stage area to better accommodate events.
