• Recapping Our Best of New Jersey Awards

    POSTED September 7, 2016

Our first annual Best of NJ Readers’ Choice event was a huge success! We are still smiling from this great event. Have you read the profiles of the winners? You can read that here.

Did your favorite industry insider or vendor make the list? If not, here’s your chance to let us know what categories we may have missed this year that you’d like to see next year. Email me to let me know your thoughts on what we can’t miss.

Speaking of events, if you’re in central or southern New Jersey, chances are you do a lot of business in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas (Bucks County—home of our intrepid Maureen Hennessey, perhaps?). If so, think about crossing state lines to attend our upcoming Best of PA awards event on Oct. 6. You can learn more about this sure-to-be-fabulous event by clicking here. Besides, who needs an excuse for a night of networking in Philadelphia, anyway?!

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.


With so many people searching for niche, unique vacations, it can be difficult to find the perfect spot. However, if it’s rich history, a variety of event spaces, and a plethora of outdoor recreation activities you’re looking for, look no further than Altoona, Pennsylvania.
