Aventri has given C&IT a sneak preview of its top European cities for meetings and events for 2019, based on bookings made through its venue sourcing platform.
London has come out on top, followed by Barcelona and Paris. Within the English capital, some of the most popular venues were One Great George Street, Hampton Court Palace, and the Corinthia Hotel.
The rankings suggest the tumultuous political situation in Britain hasn’t been too damaging for venue bookings, although the proposed exit from the European Union is yet to happen and negotiations look set to continue for some time.
- London, England
- Barcelona, Spain
- Paris, France
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Lisbon, Portugal
- Athens, Greece
- Amsterdam, Netherlands
- Copenhagen – Denmark
- Dubrovnik - Croatia
- Vienna - Austria
Last week, ICCA published its own list of top cities for meetings and events, for which it has its own eligibility criteria. In ICCA’s global rankings, Paris was top and London seventh.
Earlier this month Aventri also published a list of the most popular American cities for meetings, based on booking activity. It formed part of a report on the ‘Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’.
The US cities below are not listed in ranking order.
- Las Vegas
