Education Lesson Transferrable to Marketing and Selling

Check out this great You Tube post that certainly hit me over the head with reality! Wow! I think that everything here is transferable to marketing and sales. It's crazy! R u marketing in the present and with the future in mind? Maybe it's time to rethink your approach. I know I need to "shake it up" a bit myself! BLOG on!

Hopes Dashed to Host the Tie Guys!

What's this world coming to?  Another critical association has bit the dust!  Yesterday it was announced that the Men's Dress Furnishings Association (MDFA for all of you that are familiar with it) is dissolving.  It's true.  The tie makers just aren't doing the biz anymore.  They say it's because men aren't wearing ties on a regular basis any longer...but I think it's because the ties designed are just so damn ugly!

Here's to perpetual dress down days!

Thankful for Trains!

I'm a bit of a travel snob. I do it almost every week...plane after plane after plane! I have always avoided trains in the USA. When I travel in the UK, I consider them a necessary evil, but always a reliable way to get from city to city.

Empty Skies?

I was just reading a June 9 article in the online Business Travel News (www.btnmag.com) and I began to wonder what the latest airline woes mean for the meetings and conference industry as it pertains to Unique Venues members. The article discusses the latest rash of capacity slashing by the major carriers. American, United, Continental, Delta, Northwest and US Airways have all announced reductions in flight capacities, some by as much as 18%.

It's True...I HAD Hair!

I received a response to my blog asking when I had hair. Believe it or not, I still have hair (except a small patch up front). I choose to remove it. But, for those who still don't believe me, check out my Juan Epstein (Welcome Back Kotter) lookalike image. Chuck with Hair!

Can Using Your One-of-a-kind Venue be a Status Symbol?

I just read a great article in trendwatching.com that suggest that uniqueness is now a status symbol for consumers...including meeting and event planners! The days of consuming products that the masses are consuming are passing. Instead, people are looking for "status stories" to tell. Imagine a planner saying..."I had a fantastic meeting at a really unique site! We met on a ranch, etc." as opposed to saying..."Yes, we met in a hotel ballroom"....BORING!

Utah Rocks Unique Venues at ACCED-I 2008

The University of Utah Guest House prevailed as the winning venue in the Unique Venues/ACCED-I Rock Band Competition at the Annual ACCED-I conference held in Las Vegas. Several venues participated but no one could match the extraordinary performance by this very talented group. Could it be because they have Rock Band in their break room? Check them out.

Typical Day of a Unique Venues Member

Less time, more work, demanding customers, slashed budgets. Is this you? Take a look...if Lucy and Ethel can do it so can you! Check it out. I'm sure you have all felt this way? I know I do from time to time!
