Visit Bucks County (VBC) hosted its annual Event Venue Show, an exclusive meeting planner event, at the Michener Art Museum on Sep. 19. The event showcased 45 exhibitors from local Bucks County venues and businesses to 100 meeting and event planners from the Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York region.
While networking and learning about Bucks County’s unique venues, attendees sampled tasty hors d’oeuvres from Catering by Design and beverages from Bucks County Wine Trail and Ale Trial. Additionally, Brooke Straiton Photography provided complimentary headshots for each planner. VBC hosted a Familiarization (“FAM”) Tour the following day to give planners a firsthand look at what the county has to offer.
Businesses in attendance included new properties like Stella by Jose Garces, the Riverhouse at Odette’s, Durham Springs, Triple Sun Spirits Co. and Nostalgia 1720. Other venues that made an appearance were Peddler’s VIlalge, Hotel du Village, Mercer Museum and more.
“Bucks County offers a unique selection of venues for meetings and events, corporate retreats, team building and everything in between,” said VBC President/COO Paul Bencivengo. “Our close proximity to New York and Philadelphia makes Bucks County an ideal countryside destination for planners looking for options outside the city.”
