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.
Edmonton’s ICE District is not named after the city’s winter weather, although many locals actually enjoy the often below-zero winter nights, but after the Edmonton Oilers, the city’s revered National Hockey League team, and Rogers Place, the team’s ice hockey arena that opened downtown in 2016. The arena is physically connected to the new JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District Hotel and, despite the use of the word ICE, both venues are the hottest destinations in Edmonton’s newly revitalized neighborhood.
