IMEX America kicked off this week at the Sands Expo, Las Vegas, which attracted 2,900 hosted buyers, including representatives from major brands such as Coca-Cola, Toyota and Microsoft. On Tuesday night (14 October), C&IT held a drinks reception for its top clients that included Canada Tourism, Oneworld alliance, The Grove and Vega DMC at Lavo at The Palazzo.

On the same evening, the rest of the C&IT team were celebrating after picking up a hat-trick of gongs at the Business Travel Journalism Awards. The team picked up Meetings & Events Editorial Team of the Year and Supplement of the Year for C&IT's State of the Industry report 2014, while C&IT's editor-in-chief Yasmin Arrigo won Meetings & Events Editor of the Year for the third consecutive year.

C&IT reporter Jack Carter was shortlisted for Best Newcomer to Meetings & Events Journalism and also Business Travel News Journalist of the Year, along with news editor Alison Ledger.

The Leicester and Leicestershire Convention Bureau, operated by Leicester Shire Promotions, hosted a three-day fam trip for 30 event planners, which took place last weekend (10-12 October). 

Hospitality management company Delaware North launched Charlton Events at Charlton Athletic FC last night (16 October) in the North Stand Suite with a culinary tasting experience for event planners.

C&IT stayed at the new Conrad London St James hotel and took a few snaps of the lobby's artwork, which included a wrok by UK artists Evil Robot Designs, which takes inspiration from the hotel's location in Westminster and depicts an alternative look at the House of Commons.
