Yardi's West Coast User Conference Rolls Out to San Diego in 2017

Yardi wrapped up its Fall 2016 Yardi Advanced Solutions Conference (YASC) in Anaheim, Calif., with an announcement: the West Coast event will move to San Diego, Calif., for four years beginning in Fall 2017.

According to a media release, fall YASC is set for Wednesday to Friday, Sept. 13-15, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, a 4-star hotel property close to Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

"We are pleased to offer attendees an exceptional Southern California getaway in San Diego," said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi. "After outgrowing our Santa Barbara conference venue, many clients expressed the desire to be close to the beach again for this event. We listened, and selected an ideal new location in San Diego."

Yardi has hosted more than 1,500 clients at each of its Anaheim conferences, and expects to continue to grow the event in San Diego.

    Tea Forté Introduces ‘Matcha’ Collection

    Convenience meets tradition in Tea Forté’s new Ceremonial Matcha Bowl Set and the Matcha Single Steeps.

    The company said its spring harvested, shade grown, stone ground, organic matcha tea is best served in a centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony called chanoyu: a preparation technique known for its centering meditative qualities.

    "The launch of Tea Forté's Matcha collection represents our continued commitment to wellness and cultivating all the potential mental and physical health benefits of tea," says Tea Forté CEO Michael Gebrael. "In addition to our high quality Pure Matcha, we've also blended four distinct flavored Matcha varieties. Prepackaged in pouches measured out for a single serving, our Single Steeps Matcha is ideal for the office, travel, or to keep with you for a boost anytime."

    Tea Forté noted its handcrafted ceremonial tea bowl, handmade bamboo whisk and measuring ladle “encourages serene enjoyment of our premium Kosher, gluten-free and vegan matcha blends.” These include: Pure Matcha, Chocolate Matcha, Coconut Matcha, Ginger Matcha, and Chai Matcha.

    According to a release, in addition to its distinctive taste, matcha is prized for its health benefits. Steeped green tea contains only the antioxidants that can be extracted in water, while with matcha, the whole leaf is consumed.
