Meetings, events and hospitality technology provider Cvent has announced its ranking for 2024’s top meeting destinations and top meeting hotels worldwide. The annual rankings recognise the top-performing hotels for group business.

Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through its network between January 2023 and December 2023. The properties were ranked according to criteria including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area market share, conversion rate and response rate.

Top meeting hotels in North America

The top two spots on the list were once again claimed by Grand Hyatt Nashville and the Omni Nashville Hotel. JW Marriott Austin improved its ranking by two spots to complete the top three.

Several hotels in the Top 10 saw significant improvements (up six or more places), including JW Marriott Nashville (#4), Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport (#9), and Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk (#10).

Interestingly, each of these three hotels has prioritised outdoor meeting spaces with recent multi-million-dollar pool area renovations and expansive outdoor terrace improvements.

Top meeting hotels in Europe

Meliá Castilla in Madrid moved up three places to take the number one spot for 2024. The hotel made significant improvements to its meetings and events offerings including state-of-the-art LED screens and Wi-Fi speed, and continues to prioritise a zero-carbon footprint. These enhancements reflect planners’ focus on technology and environmental sustainability when sourcing hotels for their events.

Top meeting hotels in Middle East and Africa
