The Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast is proud to have accommodated and supported the 2013 Higher Education – K-12 Bridges Conference.
The Bacchus Inn staff have worked with members of P4CE for some time providing accommodations for their semi-annual board meetings and taking on the role of their liaison to Cape May. Planning quality events such as this require a knowledge of the destination and resources. The Bacchus Inn prides itself on understanding what Cape May has to offer as a beach resort and conference destination. Through a consistent dialogue, The Bacchus Inn staff in union with The Cape May Convention Center provided information and assistance to P4CE event planners to help develop a quality experience for the conference attendees.
The Bacchus Inn was honored to provide accommodations during the conference for keynote speakers, Hall Davidson of Discovery Education and Apple Computer’s Steve Zalot. The Bacchus Inn provided accommodations for the executive members of the P4CE board and sponsors of this conference; Wilkes University, 3rd Learning, Chester County Intermediate Unit, Research for Better Schools, and Discovery Education.
During the first evening of the conference, The Bacchus Inn hosted a networking event as per the P4CE staff request. Some food was provided by The Bacchus Inn, but the social engagement also showcased exceptional products from Cape May Winery and Seaside Cheese of West Cape May.
This 2013 Higher Education Bridges Conference in Cape May event was a success for the planners, attendees, and Cape May. A coordinated effort amongst P4CE staff, The Bacchus Inn, and the Cape May Convention Center were essential. The Bacchus Inn hopes that this conference will become a model for future events showcasing our beautiful seashore resort, historic inns, and the Cape May Convention Center.
