The Pennsylvania Meetings + Events second annual Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards were held at The Fuge in Warminster on Oct. 4. The event was attended by 85 industry insiders who anxiously awaited the announcement of each category’s winners, selected online by the readers of the magazine. The Fuge, home to the centrifuge where the astronauts trained to adjust to the G-force of the rockets, played up its otherworldly theme with blue-and-white lighting and space-themed accents, including a bar tucked inside the base of the centrifuge.

This creation is one of the distillery’s most requested drinks and perfectly refreshing in the summertime.

INGREDIENTS:
— 1.5 oz. Bluecoat American Dry Gin
— .25 oz. Dolin Dry Vermouth
— .5 oz. fresh lemon juice
— .75 oz. Penn’s Woods Syrup*

*Combine 40g fresh dill, 20g fresh basil and 10g dried coriander into one quart of simple syrup. Blend mixture, strain, and store in an airtight container and refrigerate.

 

PCMA’s flagship event, Convening Leaders, brought industry professionals from 36 countries to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 6-9 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. “We built this conference around the theme Disrupt + Deliver because that’s what the industry needs and wants,’’ says PCMA President and CEO Sherriff Karamat. “We leave here with a greater commitment and better understanding of how business events can and must drive economic and social progress.’’

 

These properties are contemporary, quirky and rich in local flavor.
