• Even Meetings Can be Stylish

    POSTED May 20, 2015

Walk into a meeting, walk out with a perfectly fitted pair of jeans. That is the premise of the Blues Jean Bar, an event add-on that encourages networking and dress-up amongst professionals while incorporating a high-grade gift item. The Aspen-based, high-quality clothing retailer is the genius behind this unique activity, which works as follows: Come to a three-hour meet-and-greet with suppliers, do a little speed networking by having short appointments with different vendors and get fitted for a pair of denim you can take home with you (a value of $160-$250).

To receive the gift, guests must meet with each vendor. Perfect for any occasion or event, especially corporate entities looking to reward employees, the Blues Jean Bar makes for a creative and memorable experience.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
