Engaging venues
Columbus CEO
More central Ohio companies are making an effort to think outside the box, literally. They're going beyond the boardroom and seeking creative venues for meetings and events — from sports stadiums and bowling alleys to movie theaters and museums — with the overarching goal of invigorating employees and engaging clients. The trend isn't altogether new — meeting planners have long scouted wow-worthy spaces to host corporate functions, big and small — but such affairs were scaled back during the recession.

Should taxpayers subsidize sports stadiums?
The Post-Standard
Former New York Assemblyman Arthur "Jerry" Kremer got people talking with a commentary espousing his view that the Carrier Dome could use an upgrade. Kremer suggested Syracuse University, the city of Syracuse and state of New York get together on a plan to renovate the 1980-vintage dome.

Taking the NHL outside: The making of stadium hockey
Sports Illustrated
It doesn't take a meteorologist to know that a sheet of NHL ice outdoors — in stadiums that seat more than 100,000, no less — offers both an aesthetically pleasing visual effect and plenty of challenging weather questions. Just ask NHL ice guru Dan Craig. The league has expanded its outdoor program from one or two games per year to six across five North American stadiums — including Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles — presenting Craig with his biggest and most difficult job yet.

KSL-TV
Utah is certainly on the map for winter Olympic athletes, and the state has the facilities to host three different Olympic trials this weekend. The fact that these facilities are still in use is no small feat, Olympic experts say. Residents have always loved snow sports, and after hosting the 2002 Winter Olympic Games many fell for ice sports as well. "In the mid-90s, there was all of three ice rinks in all of Utah; there are 17 today," said Colin Hilton, CEO of Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation.

Las Vegas no longer undisputed champ as boxing capital
Las Vegas Review-Journal
Las Vegas, which used to claim to be the boxing capital of the world, is a capital under siege. There's competition from all over. The local economy is still fighting an uphill battle and promoters don't get the deals from casinos they used to get. In 2013, just 16 fight cards were held in the city. The year before, there were 27. As Top Rank chairman, Bob Arum astutely pointed out a few months ago, "The world is getting smaller."
