It's Never Too Early to Start Booking Event, Hotel and Restaurant Reservations

New York, New York - January 8, 2003 - David Adler, CEO of BiZBash Media (www.BiZBash.com) New York City's authoritative source for essential information on event marketing, meeting and event planning, and business entertaining, announced today that BiZBash will publish a special "Welcome to New York" Republican convention planning issue of its BiZBash Event Style Reporter newspaper in Spring 2003 as an immediate response to the selection of New York as the winning city for the 2004 Republican National Convention.

The specially designed issue will include the most comprehensive listing of hotels, unique venues and caterers in New York City; give Republican groups the opportunity to reserve hotels, restaurants and event venues early; and assist in finding talented planners, entertainers, destination management companies, audiovisual companies, designers and more.

The tabloid-size, 10,000 controlled circulation publication will be distributed to all 50 Republican Party state offices, Washington D.C. headquarter offices and political organizations and corporations who are most likely to host meetings and events at the convention.

"Based on past convention experience, it is never too early to start booking venues and talent for the upcoming Republican Convention scheduled to be held in New York City in August 2004," says Adler.
