As the world reopens, destinations are eager to welcome back group business. But selecting the right destination for your convention is easier said than done. Northstar Meetings Group's 2022 Convention Cities Index aims to make the site-selection process easier for planners of large events.
This all-in-one resource identifies the destinations that are ideally suited for hosting city-wide gatherings, with rankings determined by six factors including: available exhibit space, nearby hotel rooms, average hotel cost, travel time from the nearest international airport to the convention center, the number of direct flights into the destination, and the city's safety level for travelers.
During this session, Northstar Meetings Group's senior associate editor, Elise Schoening, will reveal the latest data from the 2022 Convention Cities Index and discuss how and why city rankings have shifted over the past six months. (edited)
