Edwards, CO (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Nowadays everyone is a picky eater. From the gluten-free to vegans and those abiding by cultural customs, creating a menu can be one of the biggest challenges for a meeting or event. Yet non-traditional venues such as colleges and universities seem to be ahead of the game since they excel in catering to a diverse student population. Versatile, trained chefs, local resources and inventive strategies have allowed these dining departments to create a menu every guest will love. Campuses are just one of the seven member segments of Unique Venues—a marketing and membership organization that connects one-of-a-kind event locations with meeting planners—that is discussed in-depth in the brand new issue of the company’s exclusive quarterly magazine.
Says Unique Venues founder Michele Nichols, “Flexibility is the key to meeting at colleges and universities. When it comes to meals, we’ve seen them cater kosher meals, find specific ingredients from local Asian markets and even copy family recipes for social functions. It’s just one more reason why groups should consider meeting here—they don’t mind all the cooks in the kitchen.”
Other articles in this college and university issue include a look at the trend of digital detoxing, a profile of Wake Forest University hosting Maya Angelou’s funeral and a tour through the heart of the Midwest with the region’s best campuses for events.
The magazine is distributed with no 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.
