Emergency Alert! Unique Venues Fall Magazine Tells the Story of How Planners are Covered when Disaster Strikes


Thu, 08/20/2015

80 pages provide even more exclusive content FREE for planners in the U.S. & Canada

EDWARDS, COLORADO (August 20, 2015) – What do you do when the Boston Marathon Bombings happen during an international conference? How do you transport guests and make them safe after a tornado hits? Where do you even begin to contain norovirus? As any planner knows, you can’t predict exactly when an emergency will strike — but as any good venue knows, you can act in the moment to ensure a safe, happy outcome. That’s precisely what Unique Venues Magazine discovered in a new story called “In Case Of Emergency,” detailing how three campuses quickly reacted to save the day for onsite groups and conferences when unexpected disaster hit. The article appears in the brand-new Fall issue, just in time for programming back-to-school conferences and events.

“While there are many benefits to booking with colleges and universities, perhaps this is one of the most important,” says Unique Venues Founder Michele Nichols. “Campuses are responsible for housing, feeding and caring for thousands of students on a daily basis, which means they have developed successful communications, security and disaster preparedness plans just ‘in case.’ It’s one less thing planners have to worry about.”

In addition to “In Case of Emergency,” the all-campus Fall Issue provides 80 pages of rich content specifically for meeting and event planners, such as a look at the farm-to-table movement that has been giving university dining halls fresh ideas and an overview of the collegiate centers that have been a miracle for religious and meditative retreats looking to pray, play and stay in one place. There’s also a tour guide of the champion meeting and event spaces in the Big 10 Division and a profile of how University of Ottawa handled hosting the massive Canadian Congress this year. As always, the magazine also provides a signature drink and food recipe that planners can use for ideas in fall events.

The magazine is distributed FREE of charge to professional and accredited planners in the U.S. and Canada. As well, the magazine is delivered electronically to an additional 36,000+ professional and freelance planners. To join the mailing list for Unique Venues magazine, simply register here.
