In a ranking by cloud-based event management company Cvent, seven of the top 10 meeting hotels in APAC were from Singapore, and the remaining from Sydney, Australia.
The top 50 list was compiled by analysing meeting and event booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network featuring more than 245,000 hotels, resorts and special event venues.
Marina Bay Sands in top spot
Marina Bay Sands Singapore topped the list, followed in order by Grand Hyatt Singapore, Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney, Hilton Singapore, Conrad Centennial Singapore, Fairmont Singapore, Hilton Sydney, InterContinental Sydney, Pan Pacific Singapore and InterContinental Singapore.
“Hotels have become increasingly focused on developing more meeting and event business, and as such, have become more sophisticated in competing for the most lucrative opportunities for their respective venues,” commented Kevin Fliess, vice president of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud.
“(They) are increasingly embracing a data-driven approach to more effectively pursue the optimal meetings and events for their venue. This, coupled with another year of notable investment in renovation and other upgrades, have led to shifts in the rankings as competition remains fierce even in a robust market.”
