Cvent announces inaugural list of Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Europe

Cvent, Inc., a leading cloud-based enterprise event management company, today released – for the first time – its annual list of the top 50 hotels for meetings and events in Europe. The results have been collated using meeting and event booking activity through its Cvent Supplier Network.

Featuring approximately 240,000 hotels, resorts and special event venues, the Cvent Supplier Network is one of the world’s largest and most accurate databases containing detailed venue information. The platform, which was responsible for sourcing more than $9.8 billion in meetings and events through its marketplace in 2015, serves as a valuable search engine for global meeting planners and venue sources across the globe.  

Throughout the duration of the study, Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the Cvent Supplier Network from January 2015 through December 2015. The properties were ranked on 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 Europe.

In our inaugural list, Barcelona holds two of the top three meeting hotels in Europe.  

London tops off the list with seven featured properties, following closely behind are Amsterdam and Barcelona, with six properties each.

David Chalmers, marketing director for Cvent Europe added, “Through developing the Cvent Supplier Network, we’ve established a robust marketplace that provides not only valuable industry insight but also delivers group business in volume to hoteliers by creating visibility among a large global audience of meeting and event planners. This is the first time that we’ve conducted this study within Europe and the results will serve as a valuable resource going forward for meetings and events planners.”  

In addition, the company announced its Top 100 Meeting Hotels in the U.S.
