Meet Elite – We’ve Been Named One of the 50 Best Centers in the South!

We’ve got great news! The Clarence Brown Conference Center has been selected by the editors of ConventionSouth magazine as one of the Elite 50 Conference Centers in the South for 2014 . Centers selected for this honor were noted as being the “coolest” and “most meetings friendly” conference facilities in the South.

“In today’s business marketplace, meeting planners are especially looking for the business-focused environments and top-of-the-line event services that conference centers offer,” said Associate Publisher and Editor Marlane Bundock. As part of the Elite 50, the Clarence Brown Conference Center “offers meeting planners and their attendees a unique set of features such as technology and aesthetics, and they are able to host a diverse range of gatherings from cutting-edge business meetings to well-orchestrated social events.” Bundock also shared that “hundreds of facilities from across 16 states in the South and the Caribbean were reviewed for their eligibility, but “we strived to find centers that were a cut above the rest.”

The Clarence Brown Conference Center staff, under the direction of the Cartersville-Bartow County Convention & Visitors Bureau, is truly honored by this designation. “Recognition as part of the South’s 50 Elite is a great honor that is attributed to the right mix of flexible meeting and event space with the most advanced technology available,” beamed CVB Executive Director Ellen Archer. “But it is our professional and attentive staff that has served 70,000 happy clients throughout the past year. Hopefully, this will ensure that the Clarence Brown Conference Center will be a fixture in ConventionSouth’s Elite 50 Conference Centers for years to come.”

Hot Wedding Trends 2014 – Cakes!

Make your wedding cake a beautiful reflection of you! Cakes should look lush and decadent and totally edible. Ombre cakes are very popular this year with the colorful blend appearing on the inside as well as in the icing. A sprinkle of edible glitter will make your winter wedding confections sparkle. Brides have returned to traditional and classic round tiers of varying heights. Dreamy romantic creations are achieved by adding the look of pleats, ruffles and sugar flowers. Be sure to keep your flavors seasonal – a bright lemon cake for a tart summer wedding, or a rich chocolate with mocha for a winter celebration.
