Following the sale of Venues Today at the end of 2016, the 15-year-old title officially closed its offices in Huntington Beach, California on Jan. 31 as the company prepares to transition into Venues Now, one of two titles now under management of the Oak View Group. In this photo provided to us by VT, venerable journalist, entrepreneur and Venues Today founder Linda Deckard stays busy reporting the news while movers carried out the final steps of OVG’s transition plan. Deckard will stay on board for several more years to help guide and oversee the next chapter for the company.
