State of the Meetings Industry Survey

2018 will see a strong showing in corporate meeting spending. 37 percent of survey respondents said they will plan more meetings for 2018, up from 30 percent in 2017, and nearly 45 percent of survey respondents say they have more money to spend in 2018. In addition to a higher demand, the new year will see an increase in costs and a shift in where meetings are planned.

Two Roads Hospitality, an international lifestyle company featuring an unrivaled collection of individual hotels, resorts and vacation residences, has announced the top meetings trends for 2018 based on data from its recent “State of the Meetings Industry” survey. With more than 300 corporate, association, government and independent planners contributing to its sixth-annual survey – 66 percent of whom control more than $100,000per year in guest room, meeting space and food and beverage spend for their organizations – the hospitality leader has garnered key learnings around meeting planning, execution, and participation.

The following is a summary of the top survey results, forecasted trends for 2018, and further insight provided by Two Roads Hospitality executives:

*Survey Methodology: In October 2017, Two Roads Hospitality contacted 23,819 corporate, association, government, and independent meeting planners, of which 312 responded to the survey.
