In Cvent’s 2024 rankings, Singapore is the top Asia-Pacific meeting destination and is home to five of the region’s top meeting hotels.

Nashville, Madrid, Singapore, and Dubai: Nailed It!

Cvent’s lists of top hotels and destinations based on 2023 booking activity are out. Where are groups sourcing most often in North America and beyond? Here are the rankings.

It’s impressive for a destination to be home to several top-ranked meetings hotels. According to Cvent’s just-released annual lists of top properties for business events as measured by 2023 booking activity, four cities stand out for that feat: Nashville, Madrid, Singapore, and Dubai.

Cvent creates Top Meeting Hotel lists for four global regions: North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific.

In North America, Nashville hotels take four of the five top spots, on a list dominated by just four hotel companies: Marriott (JW, Renaissance, Westin), Omni, Accor (Fairmont), and Hyatt.

For European meeting hotels, the top-10 list includes four hotels in Madrid and two in Barcelona, giving Spain an impressive showing. In the Middle East and Africa region, Dubai hotels dominate, filling the top eight spots; and in Asia-Pacific, Singapore has five hotels in the top 10.

To create their Top Meeting Hotels lists, Cvent analyzed business generated through its Supplier Network between January 2023 and December 2023. Criteria include total number of requests for proposals, awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area market share, conversion rate, and response rate.

Similarly, for the Top Meeting Destinations list, Cvent ranks thousands of cities based on the number of total room nights booked through its system; the number of unique request-for-proposals sent through its the marketplace to venues in the city; the total value of the RFPs submitted; and the actual awarded value for meetings booked.
