Sendero Provisions Co. and Lone Star Brewing are hosting the first-ever River Rodeo, a music festival along the Guadalupe River. The one-day festival takes place Saturday, August 14, 2021, at Rockin R River Rides' outdoor concert space in New Braunfels' historic Gruene District. Festival-goers can rent a tube and float the Guadalupe River before the concerts begin, and camping will also be available on-site. The festival will feature musical acts like Houndmouth, Fruit Bats, Buffalo Nichols and more. It will benefit the Texas Food & Wine Alliance (TFWA), an organization that provides grants, educational programs and events that benefit the south Texas culinary community. A percentage of each ticket sold will go towards TFWA programs. 

"We are excited to be a part of River Rodeo and celebrate good music, good drinks, and good times outside in the land of Texas. Live music has always been at the core of our brand and we couldn't think of a better place to reignite in-person events than by the river in Gruene,"  said Daniel Crawford, Brand Manager for Lone Star Beer. 

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

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.
