The Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center has opened an outdoor event space, Live Oak Patio, to reign in spring with outdoor events and celebrations. The venue is centered around a 200-year-old live oak tree and features an airy patio with scenic views of Rivery Park and the San Gabriel River. 

The Live Oak Patio can seat up to 130 guests for wedding ceremonies, up to 100 guests for seated dinners or up to 130 guests standing. It can also accommodate live music and entertainment.

The 222-room hotel boasts 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space enhanced by custom catering and expert planners, the Live Oak Patio now among its list of impressive venues.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

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.
