The expectations from meeting and event planners are higher than ever to top each experience. More and more attendees demand one-of-a-kind event experiences, event organizers are beginning to look at the venue as a way to meet their expectations. Leveraging innovative venue marketplaces like Peerspace has made it even easier for you to “think outside the ballroom.”

In fact, American Express’s 2017 “Global Meetings and Events Forecast”* predicts that the demand for unique venues will increase by 3.7 percent this year, while the demand for traditional spaces will remain relatively flat.

Whether you’re hosting the annual holiday party or facilitating a breakout session, these less conventional spaces will help you serve up the unexpected to attendees. Choosing a unique venue gives attendees something to talk about, and encourages them to share the experience on social media. Imagine attendees on a rooftop loft sharing the view with followers on Instagram, using the event hashtag!
