Meeting Planners Turning to Non-Traditional Venues in 2007
In terms of 'what's new' regarding business meetings in 2007, look to non-traditional venues that make the most of participants' down time.
More and more business meeting organizers are researching special interest or non-traditional venues such as resorts, campgrounds, ranches, inns, country clubs, estate mansions, museums, stadiums or even cinemas as alternatives to booking traditional full-service conference centers to host their business meetings.
Jazoon for example, an IT conference to be held in Zurich, Switzerland, in summer 2007, has choosen a brand new cinema called Arena CineCenter as its venue. Interestingly, their need for 9 conference rooms and exhibition space is both fullfilled within the cinema.
