Cvent Unveils 2019 List of Top 25 Meeting Hotels in the Middle East and Africa

May 28, 2019 MICE No Comments Email Email

Cvent, a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality technology, today released its annual list of the Top 25 Meeting Hotels in the Middle East and Africa. The list was compiled by analysing meeting and event booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network (CSN), one of the world’s largest venue sourcing platforms. More than USD $16 billion and more than 42 million room nights were sourced through the CSN in 2018. Cvent’s Top Meeting Hotels lists rank venues based on MICE performance according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs) and conversion rate. Top venues are sorted geographically, and rankings are based on each hotel’s MICE performance.

“In the Middle East and Africa, we saw a nearly 20 percent increase in RFP volume year-over-year and hotels featured on this year’s lists are elevating their MICE strategy through innovative digital marketing and quick and complete online responses to RFPs – which is exactly what event organisers want,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent Hospitality Cloud. “Our Top Meeting Hotels lists are consistently used by event organisers to find great hotels and by hoteliers looking to set themselves apart to increase their property’s MICE revenue.”
