ABQ365 EVENT ORGANIZER TOOLKIT 

ABQ365 LogoABQ365 is a new initiative for the Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau that incorporates both a comprehensive calendar of events and blog with an expanded target audience. The events calendar will continue to deliver upcoming events information to a visitor audience, but has now expanded to be a comprehensive calendar of events for Albuquerque locals as well. Inclusion on the ABQ365 calendar of events is absolutely free.

The new ABQ365 brand will add to the already established audience of ACVB's calendar of events, providing a more comprehensive look at things happening around town and inserting local voices into the content. In 2013, ACVB's calendar of events received over 255,000 visits and over 836,000 pageviews. That is an average of more than 21,000 visits and 70,000 pageviews per month! Almost 40% of that traffic was coming from the Albuquerque area with almost no formal local promotion. We can't wait to see how that will grow with this new effort!

Below we provide an overview of your opportunities to collaborate with us. If you have any questions or would like to contact us to discuss further opportunities, please email events@ABQ365.com or call 505-222-4351.
