Alternative or unique venues (e.g. private clubs, lofts, cultural facilities, art galleries, etc.) are increasingly marketing themselves to event planners as options for meetings and special events. When used appropriately, these spaces offer numerous advantages, from increased attendance, to lower costs, to more unique events. But they don’t make it easy for you.
