Cvent Shares Top Meeting Destinations and Hotels for 2024

Cvent has released its lists of the Top Meeting Destinations and Top Meeting Hotels worldwide. These annual lists, which are issued regionally for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, are informed by sourcing activity through the Cvent Supplier Network (CSN). More than $16 billion of meetings and events business was sourced through Cvent’s online platforms in 2023.

The annual Cvent Top Lists have become go-to resources for planners worldwide looking for hotels and destinations to host their events. The company hosted a live press conference at IMEX Frankfurt to share more in-depth details and recognize top hotels and destinations in person.

Cvent Top Meeting Destinations, North America

For the seventh year, Orlando, FL clinched the number one spot, followed by Las Vegas, NV (No. 2). Meanwhile, Dallas, TX ascended three places to No. 4, and Denver, CO rose two places to No. 8. These higher rankings can be credited to the continued growth and prioritization of innovative offerings to attract meetings and events to their cities. For instance, Dallas leads the country in hotel rooms in the pipeline and recently announced plans to expand the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, while Denver unveiled a $233 million expansion of the Colorado Convention Center.

Cvent Top Meeting Hotels, North America

The top two spots on the Top Meeting Hotels list were once again claimed by Grand Hyatt Nashville (No. 1) and Omni Nashville Hotel (No. 2). JW Marriott Austin (No. 3) improved its ranking by two spots to round out the Top 3. Several hotels in the Top 10 saw significant improvements (six or more places), including JW Marriott Nashville (No. 4), Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport (No. 9) and Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk (No. 10), which will be a primary host hotel for Cvent’s annual user and industry conference, Cvent CONNECT, in June. Interestingly, each of these three hotels has prioritized outdoor meeting spaces with recent multimillion-dollar pool area renovations and outdoor terrace improvements.

For Cvent Top Meeting Hotels, Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the CSN between January 2023 and December 2023. The properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area market share, conversion rate and response rate. The criteria are designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions.

For Cvent Top Meeting Destinations, Cvent evaluated 12,500-plus cities worldwide listed on the CSN. Activity was tracked between January 2023 and December 2023. Rankings were determined by a set of qualifying criteria, including: the number of total room nights booked; the number of unique electronic RFPs sent through the marketplace to venues within the city; the total value of the RFPs submitted; and the actual awarded value for meetings booked.
