EDWARDS, COLORADO (February 7, 2014) – It’s an exciting time at Unique Venues as the #1 resource for non-traditional event venues, and the meeting planners who need them, continues to expand. Today, the company announced the appointment of industry expert Mandy Volpe in a newly created marketing manager role that will lead communications and sales for the numerous members in the organization. Volpe’s responsibilities will include the development of targeted marketing materials, solutions for venue sales, increased planner outreach as well as the orchestration of a comprehensive social media plan for both Unique Venues and its members, in a new service to be announced in the coming months.
