Visit Bucks County (VBC) hosted its annual Event Venue Show, an exclusive meeting planner event, at the Michener Art Museum on Sep. 19. The event showcased 45 exhibitors from local Bucks County venues and businesses to 100 meeting and event planners from the Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York region.

While networking and learning about Bucks County’s unique venues, attendees sampled tasty hors d’oeuvres from Catering by Design and beverages from Bucks County Wine Trail and Ale Trial. Additionally, Brooke Straiton Photography provided complimentary headshots for each planner. VBC hosted a Familiarization (“FAM”) Tour the following day to give planners a firsthand look at what the county has to offer.

Businesses in attendance included new properties like Stella by Jose Garces, the Riverhouse at Odette’s, Durham Springs, Triple Sun Spirits Co. and Nostalgia 1720. Other venues that made an appearance were Peddler’s VIlalge, Hotel du Village, Mercer Museum and more.

“Bucks County offers a unique selection of venues for meetings and events, corporate retreats, team building and everything in between,” said VBC President/COO Paul Bencivengo. “Our close proximity to New York and Philadelphia makes Bucks County an ideal countryside destination for planners looking for options outside the city.”

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.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
