What's New in Event Entertainment

Image: 

Shingin the spotlight on the talents of a performer not only adds an element of entertainment to an event, it creates a shared experience for your guests that encourages camaraderie and inspires individuals to connect with their own potential for greatness.

The Hershey Harrisburg Region is the Ultimate Two-for-One Meeting Location

Image: 

As the capital of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg is a town with a rich and storied history that spansmore than 200 years. Nestled in the Susquehanna Valley, Harrisburg has played a vital role in shaping American history, whether functioning as a major link for rail and water transportation or as the setting of many Civil War battles. Hershey, just east of Harrisburg, is where Hershey chocolate is made, earning it the nickname “Chocolatetown, USA.”

Looking for a scenic setting with plenty to offer? Ski resorts offer skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and other winter sports, of course, but many of these resorts also offer state-of-the-art banquet rooms, auditoriums and conference rooms for meetings and events.

With so many activities, these lodges are ideal for team-building, and even participants who hate the snow will likely find a spa to relax in, restaurants and bars with fine food or drinks and a cozy fireplace to unwind by.

New Venue Spotlight: Mason Dixon Distillery

Image: 

For Yianni Barakos, co-owner of Mason Dixon Distillery in Gettysburg, liquor-making runs in his blood. In fact, the enterprising Barakos, a self-proclaimed “tinkerer,” made his first still at the ripe age of 11 (from a cocktail napkin sketch his grandfather made of the equipment). Good thing his childlike passion for making liquor remains today, as he spent almost a year pouring his heart and soul into Mason Dixon Distillery, housed in a former furniture factory dating to the early 1900s.

Hotel du Village Reopens after Renovations

Image: 

Hotel du Village captures the beauty and romance of the French countryside and places it squarely in the charming and creative hamlet of New Hope. It’s long been a New Hope landmark, beloved by visitors and residents, many of whom spent Thanksgiving dinner around a table at the hotel’s restaurant, so it was naturally met with curiosity when Hotel du Village was sold in 2013.
