TYSONS CORNER, Va.- Cvent, Inc., a leading cloud-based enterprise event management company, today revealed its annual list of the top 50 cities for meetings and events in the United States, and the top 25 cities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and the Asia Pacific (APAC) regions. The lists were compiled according to meeting and event booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network. Cvent sourced more than $11 billion in meetings and events globally through its marketplace in 2016.
The top 10 cities in each region for 2017 are:
Las Vegas, NV
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

“Corporate events remain important economic drivers for cities globally, and we’re seeing a direct correlation between economic strength and event activity in our ranking,” said Kevin Fliess, vice president of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud. “In the U.S., for example, the most recent statistics from the Department of Commerce show that several of the cities in our top 10 list—including Orlando and Nashville—are enjoying GDP growth that outpaces the national rate. Cities that continue to invest in attracting more and larger meetings and events each year are directly investing in their local economy.”
Regional highlights include:
"Orlando continues to invest in our industry every year, with even more new additions to our expansive convention center district, innovative new venues and attractions, and more quality dining options for every type of group," said Visit Orlando President and CEO George Aguel. "To receive the honor of once again being recognized by Cvent as the No. 1 meetings destination in the country, only reinforces our ongoing commitment to this important industry."
Destinations around the world compete on a variety of factors including the accessibility of the destination and facilities for events, price and price flexibility, quality of facilities, quality of services, personal safety for attendees, and having a point of differentiation.
Cvent evaluated more than 5,000 U.S. cities featured on the Cvent Supplier Network to compile the sixth annual list. Activity was tracked from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 and the ranking was then determined by a set of qualifying criteria consisting of:
