Cvent Reveals 2013 List Of Top 50 Meeting Destinations In The United States

Cvent (NYSE:CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, today revealed its 2013 list of the top 50 cities for meetings and events in the United States according to meeting and event booking activity through the  Cvent Supplier Network. Orlando and Las Vegas held their positions in first and third compared to last year’s list, while Chicago jumped to second place and Atlanta and San Diego advanced into the top five. New York, which just missed the top ten last year at number eleven, moved up to number six this year.

The top 10 cities are:

1. Orlando, FL2. Chicago, IL3. Las Vegas, NV4. Atlanta, GA5. San Diego, CA6. New York, NY7. Washington, D.C.8. Dallas, TX9. Miami, FL10. Phoenix, AZ

“There were a surprising number of cities that shifted in our list this year, highlighting the competitive nature of the meetings and conventions industry, as well as the critical role that convention and visitors bureaus play in attracting events,” said Bharet Malhotra, senior vice president of sales for the Cvent Supplier Network. “Meetings and conventions are major economic drivers, generating valuable revenue for cities and local businesses that benefit from business travel.”

New to the Cvent list this year are National Harbor, MD; Tucson, AZ; Coronado, CA and Salt Lake City, UT, which displace Henderson, NV, as well as Boca Raton, Jacksonville and Naples, FL in the Top 50. One standout trend among smaller cities that have moved up in the ranking this year is proximity to a major airport. These include cities like Rosemont, IL and San Jose, CA. Airport proximity is also a strong point for all of the top 10 cities, several of which are served by multiple airports.

Cvent evaluated nearly 5700 U.S. cities featured on the Cvent Supplier Network to create the list. Activity was tracked between July 2012 and June 2013 and the ranking was then determined by a set of qualifying criteria consisting of:
  • Unique Request For Proposals Received
  • Total Room Nights
  • Awarded Request For Proposals
  • Awarded Room Nights
  • Percentage of Qualified Meeting Venues

Featuring more than 200,000 hotels and special event venues, the Cvent Supplier Network is one of the world’s largest, most accurate databases of detailed venue information. It contains listings of hotels and other venues in more than 175 countries that can be searched and filtered based on approximately 200 characteristics and data fields. Suppliers are also able to easily reach to new customers among the tens of thousands of meeting planners who use the Cvent Supplier Network, helping hotels maximize their existing sales and marketing resources. Additionally, Cvent’s Destination Guide provides convention and visitors bureaus and suppliers an additional channel for building awareness among meeting planners with profiles of more than 1,000 destinations globally, giving planners access to destination-specific information and key statistics.
