EDWARDS, COLORADO (August 1, 2016) – With the large amounts of unused food, leftover décor, and paper trails that comprise regular gatherings, the meetings and event industry can often be a wasteland of materials. And with environmental concerns on the minds of many, a group of non-traditional event venues have taken it into their own hands to develop innovative recycling and reuse programs that cut down on garbage and amp up sustainability.
From donating food to local charities, hiring goats as lawnmowers, creating buildings that are one with nature, and participating in eco-friendly challenges, the new issue of Unique Venues magazine looks at all the incredible ways this niche industry is creating big impact with smaller footprints.
“It’s exciting to see that non-traditional venues are again at the head of the pack in kick-starting programs that could literally change the world someday,” says Unique Venues Founder Michele Nichols. “Their forethought will soon set the standard for the entire industry.”
The brand-new Summer/Fall Issue also hones in on other developing news and trends, including features on the latest team-building activities, coworking spaces being used as event hubs, and a look at how one college hosted both the Democratic and Republican primary debates in a heated election year. There’s also a spotlight on Southwest venues and, as always, drink and food recipes that might inspire upcoming seasonal menus.
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.
