Unique Venues Releases First-Ever Magazine Covering Meetings and Event Hosting at Non-Traditional Sites

EDWARDS, COLORADO (May 7, 2013) – Unique Venues, a marketing and membership organization that connects one-of-a-kind event locations with meeting planners, will release a new edition of its highly-coveted industry magazine in July. With members across the U.S. and Canada that fall into categories of arenas and stadiums, camps and retreats, colleges and universities, business and conference centers, cruise ships, historical/cultural sites and special event venues, the articles in this publication speak to the vast benefits of hosting a meeting in a space that goes beyond a typical boardroom.

This exclusive publication has never been offered before and comes from the leading authority that has worked closely with the unique venues industry for nearly 30 years. In more than 64 pages, planners will have access to in-depth articles and tactical information that can help them navigate the particulars of working with non-conventional venues. The editorial content highlights the perks of meeting at a unique venue, such as the rich built-in ambiance, and illustrates how doing so helps planners leave a unique impression. Plus, targeted pieces showcase the benefits of small markets and helpful tips from meeting professionals. Ten additional pages are devoted to exclusive member listings to help planners find event venues in any geographic location. “There has never been a publication like this available to meeting planners before,” says Michele Nichols, founder of Unique Venues. “For more than 27 years, we were at the leading edge, publishing a planner's guide of colleges and universities; now, we are thrilled to take it a step further and increase the coverage of this growing field with four dedicated magazine issues released each year.”

The publication schedule will include one magazine per quarter: Two devoted solely to colleges and universities (the largest member segment), and two covering the vast array of other Unique Venues members. Each print issue 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 10,000+ professional and freelance planners.

In addition, the 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.
