Over the past few weeks my husband and I have started to look ahead and make some plans for travel in the next year. Even while the coronavirus surges in some parts of the country and the EU may bar U.S. citizens from entering its borders in the coming week, we've decided to broaden our horizons literally and figuratively. While we aren't contemplating any major international travel or cruises just yet, we're certainly open to looking at some of the great travel deals out there right now and helping the travel industry bounce back.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.
A portion of our summer entertainment schedule always goes to attending outdoor concerts, generally devoted to rock acts and most often at our nearby venue, the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, Oregon. It's hard to beat great music on a warm summer night with stars overhead and a glass of wine in hand. The current pandemic has certainly suspended that kind of activity, but at least one of my favorite artists is offering an alternative that provides a unique experience with benefits one can't achieve at a concert with thousands in attendance.
