Top Meeting Locations from 2017

As we begin the jump into 2018, before we start thinking about recommending meeting destinations, we’ve taken some time to look back at our past year and the numbers to the industry in its entirety. As in years past, we’ve noticed cities like Orlando and Las Vegas remain on top due to their year-round favorable weather, large convention centers, and cost effectiveness. Destinations like Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York are forever popular, despite higher costs, due to the attraction of the city itself as well as the accommodations they provide. 

Below you will see CVENT’s Top 10 U.S. Meeting Destinations for 2017. We've managed meetings in 9 of the top 10 locations in the last year and personally love placing meetings in Dallas due to the cost effectiveness and ease of air travel as well as San Diego due to the large number of unique properties and great year-round weather (though we may be biased given that it’s our home). One of our recommended destinations that didn’t crack the CVENT top 10 is Denver, CO. With its central location, large number of upscale hotels, vibrant downtown, and over 300 sunny days a year; Denver is definitely worth considering for a sure-fire meeting.

1.     The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa.

This year, it is The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa’s 25th Annual Festival of Lights. This incredible light show is a six-week long spectacular filled with 200 animated figures, appearances from Santa Claus, falling snow, and immaculate Christmas trees. Stop by to catch the illuminated lights show followed by a stunning fireworks display. You won’t want to miss the rich tradition of Southern California on beautiful display at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa this holiday season.

2.     The Hotel Del Coronado.

The Hotel Del Coronado is widely known for its Skating by the Sea tradition, arguably the favorite holiday activity in all of San Diego. As the focal of the Hotel Del Coronado’s tradition is the skating rink, there is also a grand light display in the garden of the hotel, followed by Elf Tuck-Ins for your little ones, and Brunch with Santa for the entire family to enjoy. The Hotel Del Coronado is definitely on our list for holiday fun this year.
