London, Barcelona and Paris are the top three cities to hold meetings in Europe, according to event management software firm Cvent, with Athens coming in 19th on the company’s list of the leading 25 destinations for meetings across the continent.Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Rome, Brussels and Dublin complete the Top 10, with four cities in the leading 25 in Germany, and two cities each in England, Spain and Italy.
Cvent said it examined meeting planner engagement levels with hotels and venues between July 2014 and June 2015 in 2,500 European cities in its Supplier Network.“The macro trend we found is that the competition between cities to attract meetings and events is fierce,” says Kevin Fliess, Cvent Vice President of Marketing.
“We are seeing smaller markets investing to lure meetings away from big cities. Two good examples of that would be Manchester and Birmingham in England.”Cvent’s Top 25 meeting destinations in Europe are (in order): London, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam,Berlin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Rome, Brussels, Dublin,Prague, Istanbul, Vienna,Munich,Copenhagen, Lisbon, Manchester,Stockholm, Athens,Budapest, Hungary, Milan, Hannover, Birmingham,Zurich, Edinburgh.
