Kimball Arts Festival4 Salt Lake City Highlights to Check Out During ASAE 2016

Headed to ASAE Annual 2016? Us too!

Of course, we’re looking forward to the great line-up of conference sessions and are especially excited about Robert Stephens’ session on the future of technology. But while we’re in town, it would be a shame to miss some of Salt Lake City’s highlights.

1. Soar on Snowbird’ Aerial Tramway to the top of Hidden Peak

Enjoy the incredible views on Snowbird’s iconic aerial tramway to the top of 11,000 Hidden Peak. Take a moment to breathe in the clear mountain air and then choose to either hike a 1.2 mile round-trip along Snowbird’s Barrier Free Trail, OR  take a ride on Snowbird’s Mountain Coaster, Alpine Slide, or the Mountain Flyer.

2.  Dine like a duke (or duchess) at Valter’s Osteria

Rated #1 by Trip Advisor, this upscale Italian restaurant at 173 Broadway is a quick 10 minute-walk from the Salt Palace Convention. With a mouth-watering line-up of authentic Italian dishes inspired by Valters’ Tuscany upbringing, this is a must-try for visitors to Salt Lake City. We’ll be here on Sunday night, sampling burrata with a bottle of red! Check out the menu here.

3. Paint the town red at Park City’s Kimball Arts Festival

Park City’s famous Kimball Arts Festival is not-to-be missed local arts fundraiser. The party gets started on Park City’s historic Main Street, and features a motley mix of local potters, painters, sculptors, live blues, gypsy rock, reggae and more!Kimball Arts Festival

Food trucks, bistro-style dining decks and an artisan-products tasting area offers delicious adventures for every taste bud. Meandering down Main Street looks like the perfect way to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon.

4. Take a stroll through the “most beautiful shopping mall in America”

Check out the City Creek Centre which is just what it sounds like: this shopping mall has a gorgeous creek running through the property! In the heart of Salt Lake City, this unusual shopping environment also features a retractable glass roof and a pedestrian skybridge, Not to mention the 100 world-class stores and restaurants including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Tiffany & Co, Michael Kors. Definitely worth visiting while you’re in town.

EM-ipad-table-view-timeConference Day At-A-Glance: A Better Way to View Agendas on Mobile Event Apps [New Feature]

Helping attendees access conference information with ease is one of the most important goals for any event planner. As more events adopt mobile event apps over printed guides, visualizing and organizing the agenda for attendees on a small screen can be a challenge. This is especially true when a conference has anywhere between 30 and 300 sessions per day, not to mention multiple tracks. Attendees have to manage time conflicts and explore sessions that are most valuable to them in concurrent session blocks. Endless scrolling and the fear of missing out on relevant sessions can leave some attendees discouraged and overwhelmed when they are planning their day on their smartphones.
