Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
If you think overnight accommodations on a college or university campus are the typical dorms from decades past, think again. The living arrangements at these properties are as varied as the guests they cater to, including both students and visiting conference guests. In the first-ever story of its kind, Unique Venues—a marketing and membership organization that connects one-of-a-kind event locations with meeting planners—goes inside the four different types of on-campus rooms to show what guests can expect when staying overnight. Rich photos and in-depth information from a variety of sources give the full picture of arrangements, from traditional residence halls to deluxe hotel-style accommodations. In the story, the honest truth comes out, disclosing the pros and cons of each situation and what may not be provided when choosing these spaces for groups.
Says Unique Venues founder Michele Nichols, “This is the first time a story like this has been published. Other organizations have covered technology, food service and meeting rooms on campus, but not the overnight accommodations, which is why we are very excited to give readers the chance to know more about where they could be staying. If you’re a planner, this issue is not to be missed.”
Although Unique Venues has members across the U.S., Canada and U.K. including arenas and stadiums, camps and retreats, business and conference centers, cruise ships, historical/cultural sites and special event venues, the 2014 Winter Issue is focused solely on college and university members, its largest segment. Other story topics cover the rise of student unions, a look at the advancements in technology on campus and a tour through the University of Florida school system.
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 16,000+ freelance and specialty planners. To join the mailing list for Unique Venues magazine, simply register here.
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.
