ABQ365 is a new initiative for the Visit Albuquerque 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 Visit Albuquerque's calendar of events, providing a more comprehensive look at things happening around town and inserting local voices into the content. In 2013, Visit Albuquerque'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.
With this new effort comes the ability for you to place an ABQ365 Events Widget within your website for absolutely free! You can better serve your customers and support the ABQ365 effort by easily copying and pasting a simple bit of code onto your website.

The ABQ365 Blog is a multi-author blog, written by Albuquerqueans about Albuquerque. This effort gives Visit Albuquerque the opportunity to incorporate local voices into our messaging that positively highlight our city. Two blogs will be published each week, along with a #365DaysOfEvents post each Sunday. We are always looking for content, so please be sure to keep our team informed of new offerings at your organization.
If you have an idea for a blog feature, or are interested in being a guest contributor, please get in touch with our editorial team at editor@ABQ365.com.
365 Days of Events is ABQ365's first campaign. The campaign is designed to highlight an event each day, showcasing a sample of the plethora of events that occur in Albuquerque each year (365 days). Each week on Sunday, a blog will be published that highlights an event for each day of the next week. These events will also be promoted across our social networks, through emails and more! The hashtag #365DaysOfEvents will be incorporated throughout the campaign.
Events that are included in 365 Days of Events can be viewed via the 365 Days of Events category within the ABQ365 events calendar, as well as the 365 Days of Events blog subcategory at ABQ365 Blog.
To make sure your event has the opportunity to be considered for inclusion in 365 Days of Events, please submit your event by the 15th of the month prior to the month your event occurs.
This campaign will launch on March 6th at 5pm. (3-6-5pm)
