The Special Events Company of Raleigh, N.C., has earned a Trinity Award and was nominated for an Esprit Award based on its work with Teen Cancer America's "North Carolina Cares" fundraiser.

The Trinity Awards Gala in June was hosted by the Raleigh-Durham Chapter of the International Live Events Association. TSEC was honored with Best Team Effort in the Budget $75,000-$150,000 category. Other honorees included Catering Works, Inc. and Party Reflections. TSEC was nominated in the same category for the ILEA Esprit Awards, and winners of that award will be announced in August at the ILEA Esprit Awards Dinner at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre in Canada.

The "North Carolina Cares" fundraiser that earned TSEC its nominations raised awareness and funds for Teen Cancer America. TCA is working toward a specialized cancer treatment facility for teens in North Carolina. The event hosted 250 guests and was TCA's first major fundraiser in the area.

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.  

 

If you’ve hosted meetings at the Javits Center or other venues in Manhattan, you know that there’s more than enough to do in the borough to easily keep attendees busy for days.

 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.”
