Planning an event in Patagonia, Baku or Cappadocia? Chuckle not, as these are the destinations tipped by C&IT readers to be among the new horizons to be explored in 2013 and beyond.

C&IT’s first Future Frontiers report unveils the top destinations off the beaten track that event planners are looking to pitch in ?the next 12 months. Indeed, a quarter of event planners surveyed for the report say that between ?a quarter and half of the destinations they pitch in 2013 ?will be for the first time.

Following a few stringent years of travel restrictions and caution from corporates of overseas events, this will come as welcome news for delegates eagerly awaiting a covetable travel experience to reward and motivate.

Planners concur that new flight routes from trusted carriers are among the quickest ways to pique their interest, with Panama, Jordan and Cambodia all set to make a dominant appearance on the C&I map in the future.

And if all that sounds too far flung for your liking, Kiruna and Kazakhstan are among the many destinations on the road less travelled that have already been trialled by UK planners eager to give their delegates a brand-new event experience.
