When it comes to venue scouting, every planner has their go-to list of favorite spaces. These can range from the traditional hotel to private rooms at local restaurants to art galleries. But with the ease of the familiar, you might be overlooking impactful spaces that could add the "wow factor" to your event.
Case and point: The Crystal Couture fashion showcase. Produced by the Crystal City Business Improvement District in Virginia, this annual fashion event bring retailers, boutique owners, accessories shops and designers together with nearly 1,000 fashion enthusiasts for three days (and nights) of retail therapy, fashion shows and business promotion. What separates this show from other fashion events though is its venue choice.
