Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center Renovates Ballroom

Rosemont, IL (PRWEB) March 18, 2010

The Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center (, 5440 N. River Rd., has taken another step toward total transformation with the opening earlier this month of the remodeled O’Hare International Ballroom. In conjunction with the new ballroom opening, anyone who books an event at the hotel through June 30 will receive 10% off the total bill, according to Patty Connolly, Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare general manager.

The 23,500-square-foot ballroom – one of the largest column-free rooms in the O’Hare area – has new high-end décor with state-of-the-art LED chandeliers and finishes mirroring the property’s recently renovated guest rooms and suites. More than 4,000 square feet of pre-function space has been added adjacent to the ballroom for staging registrations, pre-meal receptions (capacity: 400), dessert buffets, small-scale trade shows and similar events.

For maximum sound coverage, both the ballroom and the pre-function space have been equipped with a new 60-speaker sound system. Throughout, a new Lutron lighting system creates energy efficient, digitally controlled ambiance.

“We’ve gotten lots of compliments on the décor, with its elegant yet approachable look. The room’s new raised ceiling height gives it an overall spacious appearance, yet there’s an intimate feel,” said Connolly.

She explained that event planners appreciate the fact that the ballroom can be divided into as many as five separate spaces. “For example, you can simultaneously conduct a general session in one room, a trade show in another, and still have up to three spaces available for break-out sessions.”

The combined ballroom space can accommodate receptions for up to 3,800, sit-down meals for up to 2,300 and theater-style seating for up to 3,000. When divided, each smaller room can handle around 30 6-foot trade show booths or classroom-style seating for about 250.

The Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare’s dedicated meeting managers oversee all event details with services that include a two-hour response to RFP guarantee and daily meetings debriefs.

With its prime location just 1.5 miles from O’Hare International Airport, across from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and adjacent to the Rosemont Theater, the hotel regularly hosts training sessions, conferences and trade shows in many industries, as well as religious gatherings, self-help seminars, dance competitions and, of course, weddings.

The hotel recently renovated all 503 guest rooms and suites, adding handcrafted custom furniture plus amenities including a refrigerator, in-room safe that accommodates a laptop computer, cordless telephone, 32-inch flat-screen HD television, wireless high-speed internet access and Roomlinx interactive entertainment solution.

A two-story fitness center with indoor swimming pool, several on-site dining options, indoor parking, and a free airport shuttle round out the property’s offerings.

“Whether it’s a trade show, full-scale convention, wedding or intimate social gathering, the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare with our newly remodeled guest rooms and ballroom, has the facilities, amenities and service to make it a success,” said Connolly.

Boston, Massachusetts – The sculpted, youthful body we used to only imagine is now a reality. Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center, a leading aesthetics provider in New England, now offers VASER® Hi Def Liposculpture, a technique using VASER® technology to create a sculpted, muscular appearance. VASER® Hi Def (VHD) is a body sculpting technique originally developed by plastic surgeons for men and women who are generally healthy and fit, and who desire a more sculpted, muscular appearance. VHD is no longer just reserved for high-level fit people, but for normal people that desire to look their best-ever.

Whereas traditional liposuction, which only reduces volume and circumference, was the only option, VASER® Hi-Def™ LipoSculpture has revolutionized the surgeon’s ability to bring enhanced, natural, well-toned definition to patients. Vaser Hi-Def is an advanced procedure that combines cutting-edge technology (VASER) with state of the art technique which focuses on the precise removal of superficial and deep fat around muscle groups in order to enhance the visibility of the underlying musculature, resulting in a youthful, natural and sculpted appearance. If you have worked hard at the gym for rock hard abs but can’t shift the top layer of fat hiding your muscles, this is the solution you are looking for. Dr. Edwin Ishoo, a board-certified surgeon and the founder and director of the Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center states ” Vaser Hi-Def is truly a highly effective body sculpting procedure, unlike any other”. It was developed to create and enhance athletic appearances in people who are of a ‘normal’ weight or build and have a good degree of muscle tone already, the pictures showing patients before and after treatment speak for themselves.

Many healthy, fit people complain that they go to the gym but they have trouble achieving the muscle definition they desire and become discouraged. People who choose High Definition LipoSculpture don’t see it as a failure to achieve fitness, but an enhancement to their current form. Often, VHD gives one the motivation to go back to the gym again after some years of neglect, and a renewed quest for a beautiful body. The people whom one might least expect to have liposuction benefit most from VHD. Personal trainers, gym fanatics and models make up 70% of clients for VASER® Hi Def. “More than just liposuction, we can create enhanced muscle definition with VHD, this is the ultimate advance in body sculpting.” said Dr. Ishoo, and added “There is no reason to have any other liposuction procedure if you are looking to achieve enhanced muscle definition.”

VASER Hi-Def LipoSculpture was originally developed by Dr. Alfredo Hoyos of Colombia in 2002, and brought to the U.S. and perfected by Colorado surgeon Dr. John Millard since 2005. Recognizing the importance of this sophisticated method of body sculpting for his clientele, Dr. Ishoo, who has performed hundreds of Smartlipo and Vaser procedures with great results, traveled to the Advanced Body Sculpting Institute in Colorado and received extensive hands-on training in this advanced technique with Dr. Millard. To date, fewer than 100 surgeons have been trained in the world, with only a handful practicing in the U.S. Dr. Ishoo is the first and only surgeon qualified to perform the VASER Hi-Def LipoSculpture in New England. “The Vaser, ultrasound technology combined with an aesthetic appreciation for the human anatomy and an experienced liposuction surgeon allows for spectacular results to which nothing else even comes close,” said Dr. Ishoo.

VASER Hi Def LipoSculpture can be done on multiple body parts including the female breast, male chest, abdomen, love handles, back, arms, buttocks, hips, waist and thighs. Some body areas can even be done in the office under local sedation. Improved definition can usually be seen in about 4 weeks with final results in about 4-6 months. “This technique is for those women who want to rediscover their pre-baby shape and don that bikini or the little black dress again or for men who want well defined, muscular pecs and six packs.” States Dr. Ishoo.

Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center is a leading cosmetic care center in Massachusetts and New England. Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center is committed to providing improved quality of life through enhanced physical appearance, offering a complete range of services including liposuction, Smartlipo Triplex, Vaser Hi Def LipoSculpture, injectables, autologous fat transfer and facial laser enhancements to communities within Boston and the South Shore with offices in Brookline and Marshfield.

On August 7th, the National Engineering Research Center of Digital Television established in Shanghai Pudong, which indicates that, the support platform of China’s national digital television industry has fully put into operation. This project center is permitted by National Development and Reform Commission, and its major business include the research of digital television’s common technology and the core technology of next generation, the intellectual property management and permission of digital television, the development research and layout research of and digital television, the national standard promotion and the test of new business. The research center involves many industrial chain enterprises, the digital television is a system, not a separate television, it is impossible to promote only by one link, so we hope that through this center many enterprises including broadcasting companies can promote together with capital ties. Industry insiders told the reporter that in recent years, the National Development and Reform Commission has been promoting the special development of digital television, and the approved enterprises can enjoy the financial support. Next the digital television industry will have big development, but the competition of domestic enterprises core components is weak, so the NDRC wishes to promote the core components development and industrial layout through special items.

Compared to developed countries, China still has significant distance in the digital penetration and industrial core competition. On June last year, the United States has officially closed the analog television signals and all has changed to digital signals, Japan and European countries plan to close it within the next two years. According to the plan, China will achieve the signal conversion in 2015. According to the data measured by Ovid Consulting (AVC), by the end of 2009, the color television inventory in Chinese families reached 510 million units. Take 5000 yuan a set as an example, the involved sum is more than 100 billion yuan, which doesn’t include the launch, broadcast content, web updates, new media and other links, so the industry is huge. One job of the research center is the intellectual property management and permission of digital television, a patent pool managed and accredited by the company will be built, and members can put the related patent technology of digital television in it. The digital television industry is large and complex, which involves many links and has different administrative organizations and research institutions, also has different intellectual property rights, so it will be better to deal with when combine them together.

Industry insiders said that the patent pool construction involves benefit distribution, before this, the color television enterprises have built patent pool in order to corporately deal with the high patent fee of foreign countries, but the progress is not smooth and it also once suffered suspicion. Mr. Luo Qingqi, the appliance industry expert, said that in foreign countries such as Japan home appliance enterprises there is the patent replacement. As for domestic enterprises, the patent technology is not many originally, and they also have encountered the lesson that the patent was banned. Therefore, it is difficult to face foreign competition without cooperation. A group of enterprises holding together certainly need exploration and practice, Chinese enterprises lack the combination experience, so they should explore the future cooperation model actively, and how to develop the organization and cooperation form is more important than the breakthrough on digital television technology.
