If you're a religious meeting planner looking for a meeting site in the United Kingdom or Ireland, but you don't need a primer on meeting planning or a chat with other Web denizens or any other flashing, spinning, pulsing distraction, venuedirectory.com is your kind of Web site.

Venuedirectory.com has a user-friendly interface for site searches, the ability to e-mail or fax RFPs to up to 50 hotels, and … well, that's it. There aren't even any banner ads on this less-is-more site.

Venuedirectory.com plans to expand its directory to include properties in North America. In the meantime, if you're looking to meet across the pond, this site, which launched in 1994, should be your first stop online.
