For the fourth time in five years, Orlando has been named Cvent's No. 1 meeting destination in the U.S.
Where are the top meeting cities around the country? Cvent answers that question with its annual report based on meeting and event bookings through its Cvent Supplier Network. The top three U.S. meeting and event cities, according to Cvent, are Orlando, Chicago and Las Vegas. Orlando has ranked No. 1 in four of the five years the ranking has been published.
“Meetings and events are critically important to the economies of cities of all sizes around the world,” says Kevin Fliess, vice president of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud. “During the past five years we have tracked how cities across the U.S. compete. Factors that have often created a difference have included investments in infrastructure, hotel renovations within a city, economic factors that make a destination more appealing, and offering an alternative to mainstream destinations. All of these cities can learn from multi-year leader Orlando that the only way to remain on top is to continue investing and innovating to remain competitive year after year.”
Cvent evaluated more than 5,000 U.S. cities to compile its fifth annual list. The rankings were based on activity from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2015, with the regards to the following criteria:
- Unique request for proposals received
