A 1968 Shelby convertible, a 1931 Bugatti Royale and a number of classic Corvettes paraded through the Hershey Harrisburg Region July 30–Aug. 2 and resulted in an estimated economic impact of $10.5 million.

Specifically, the items were part of the Mecum Auctions, which happen across the United States at different points of the year and sell collector cars, motorcycles, tractors and collectibles. This auction took place at the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center and saw $20.5 million in sales—an overall sell-through rate of 67 percent.

Overall a total of 1,016 vehicles, 135 motorcycles, 107 tractors and 405 Road Art items were offered for sale during 20-hours of auction coverage broadcast on NBC Sports Network. It’s estimated that an audience of 20,000 registered bidders and spectators attended the event. This year’s results rival Mecum’s record-breaking first-time event for northeast in Harrisburg in 2014.

“It was great to see that the crowds at this year’s Harrisburg auction easily rivaled that of our inaugural event in 2014,” says Dana Mecum, founder and president, Mecum Auctions. “With so many registered bidders present, bidding remained steadily competitive and kept sales strong.”

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.

 

In early June, the City Council of Tyler called a special meeting to name its Rose Complex's conference center. The center will be called the W.T. Brookshire Conference Center after the iconic grocery store founded and headquartered in Tyler. 

"Brookshire's tradition of outstanding service was instilled 90 years ago when W.T. Brookshire made the decision to place the customer as his top priority," says Mayor Don Warren. 

After the name was announced, attendees for the momentous occasion signed the complex girders to commemorate the occasion.
