“Hotels have become increasingly focused on developing more meeting and event business, and as such, have become more sophisticated in competing for the most lucrative opportunities for their respective venues,” said Kevin Fliess, vice president of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud. “Hotels continue to advance and expand their group marketing efforts and are increasingly embracing a data-driven approach to more effectively pursue the optimal meetings and events for their venue. This coupled with another year of notable investment in renovation and other upgrades have led to shifts in the rankings as competition remains fierce even in a robust market.”

In the U.S., the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is this year’s Top Meeting Hotel, climbing from second place last year. Four new properties have broken into the Top 10: JW Marriott Austin (Ranked 4th); The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa (Ranked 7th); and Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego (Ranked 8th); Mandalay Bay Resort (Ranked 10th). Newcomers to the top 100 list include Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel, and Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, to name a few. Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt are the top 3 hotel chains which have the most properties on the Top 100 list.

In the EMEA, The Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona is this year’s Top Meeting Hotel, climbing from third place last year. The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai (Ranked 45th) is the first property from the Middle East to make the newly expanded list. Four new properties have broken into the Top 10: Melia Castilla Hotel & Convention Center Madrid (Ranked 4th); Moevenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre ijVENUES (Ranked 7th); Hilton Vienna (Ranked 9th); and Rome Marriott Park Hotel (Ranked 10th).

In Asia Pacific, Marina Bay Sands Singapore is this year’s Top Meeting Hotel from APAC.

Seven out of the Top 10 Meeting Hotels from APAC are from Singapore and the rest 3 are from Sydney, New South Wales.

Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the Cvent Supplier Network from January 2016 through December 2016. 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 (MMA) market share, conversion rate, and the hotel’s unique profile visits in the Cvent Supplier Network. The criteria are designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in the U.S., EMEA and APAC regions, Cvent said.
