Mount Airy Casino Resort revealed its recent expansion with a ribbon cutting on May 2. The expansion included several additions and renovations to the resort's event space.

Before the expansion, Mount Airy Casino Resort lacked space to accommodate large scale meetings and conventions, but now it has a full-service four-star diamond resort that can accommodate 750 guests seated or 1,200 standing. 

"From our superbly crafted and meticulously maintained award-winning golf course, which was designed by renowned architect Hal Purdy, to our spa, gaming and dining options which were recently featured in Forbes, we believe that we are among the top premiere destination resorts on the East Coast for meetings and conventions, says resort owner Lisa DeNaples.

As one of the country's only family-owned casino resorts, Mount Airy Casino Resort staff take pride in delivering the best possible experience for all guests, DeNaples says. "We took advantage of the opportunity to add more sophisticated rooms and executive suites. Lastly, adding a top-scale convention and meeting space created broader utility for our destination development," she adds.

Since the expansion, Mount Airy Casino Resort has been available for tours with meeting and convention planners, and DeNaples says they have expressed excitement over the new state-of-the-art amenities.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
