UNIQUE VENUES RELEASES THIRD ISSUE OF EXCLUSIVE MAGAZINE UNCOVERING THE REAL COSTS OF MEETING ON CAMPUS
Available in late September, it’s FREE for professional planners in U.S. & Canada
EDWARDS, COLORADO (September 26, 2013) – What are the actual costs for planning a meeting on a college or university campus? How much will a planner have to budget for overnight accommodations in residence halls and just what does the price of meals include? In the third issue of its exclusive magazine, Unique Venues—a marketing and membership organization that connects one-of-a-kind event locations with meeting planners—interviews six different campuses to uncover real facts and figures for its revealing cover story, “The Dollars and Sense of Meeting on Campus.”
Says founder Michele Nichols, “This story is a great chance for planners to understand in plain English just how value-driven campuses are for meetings, conferences and special events. We often talk about how affordable it is to host a function in this setting—but now we get the chance to actually show it.”
Although Unique Venues has members across the U.S. and Canada including arenas and stadiums, camps and retreats, business and conference centers, cruise ships, historical/cultural sites and special event venues, the 2013 Fall Issue is focused solely on college and university members, its largest segment. Other story topics cover collegiate conference centers, a tour through the University of California school system, the trend of campus food trucks and tips for negotiating costs with a college conference department.
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 professional, freelance planners and specialty group meeting organizers.

In addition, the UniqueVenues.com website features a comprehensive database of all member listings including contact information, photo and video galleries, menus, meeting room capacities, a FREE RFP service, and more.
