The IAVM Foundation has named a local event professional a member to its 30 Under 30 Class of 2015.

The organization—a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the positive impact and vitality of the public assembly industry—honored Bill Enkhbayar, event manager, Global Spectrum at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall, by placing him on the list, which centers on naming and fostering venue industry professionals in the field of venue management that are under 30 years old.  

As part of the honor, Enkhbayar will receive free registration to VenueConnect—IAVM’s Annual Conference & Trade Show in Baltimore—a travel stipend and a complimentary one-year Young Professional Membership. He will be recognized at the Venue Industry Awards luncheon portion of the conference.

Enkhbayar joined the venue management field in 2011 as a graduate assistant/event manager for Global Spectrum at The Liacouras Center in Philadelphia. After two years, he switched to event manager at the Global Spectrum-managed Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. He worked there for eight months before beginning his current role.

“Bill is one of the smartest, most hard working and eager event managers I have ever worked with, says Fran Rodowicz, general manager, Global Spectrum at Boardwalk Hall. “I’ve been fortunate to see him grow up in the industry since day one, and he’s constantly wanting to learn more about his position, about other departments and everything about the industry.  Always a team player, he’s proving to be a great leader and has a bright future with Global Spectrum.”

Washington D.C.’s up-and-coming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood is the ideal backdrop for Thompson Hotels’ new 225-room property set to open this winter. Thompson Washington D.C. will flaunt 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views.

 

Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.

 

Situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Despite being just an hour and half from Pittsburgh and 40 minutes from Morgantown airport, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort can be found nestled in the pastoral countryside, surrounded by expansive landscapes of mountains, forests and waterfalls.
