is the ideal meeting destination with newly renovated hotel rooms and suites, refurbished meeting spaces, many restaurants from which to choose, world-class shopping, unique and engaging group activities and so much more.”

According to Ziereis, to address a high demand for unique and engaging activities among convention attendees, Tropicana now offers Escape AC.

Escape rooms have become increas- ingly popular among meeting planners as a way to “spice up” conventions, and the rooms are designed to challenge groups to work together toward the same goal. The rooms provide a chal- lenging experience that requires atten- dees to pay attention to detail and use critical thinking, communication and teamwork in order to “break out.”

“These assets set us apart from the competition,” said Ziereis. “The number of hotel rooms and convention space square footage are important factors for meetings planners when they book their next convention, but the experi- ences that are available on property that keep attendees engaged also are important.”

In Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley Region, the AAA Four-Diamond rated, award- winning Sands Casino Resort is set in Bethlehem’s historical district, close to a number of museums.

It has on- site audio-visual experts, as well as meeting planners and award-winning cuisine by professional chefs.

Dining options include: Buddy V’s Ristorante; Emeril’s Chop House; Emeril’s Fish House; Burgers and More by Emeril; Chopstick; as well as the Steelworks Buffet and Grill. The aroma of coffee will lead attendees to Croissanterie, while a variety of favorite foods await at Market Gourmet Express.
