The 12th annual Global Meetings and Events Forecast is based on a survey of 580 meetings and events professionals from around the world and interviews with industry leaders. The survey ran in May and June 2022. Respondents represent corporations, associations, buyers and suppliers from five continents and 23 countries. The result is a statistically and globally representative picture of the 2023 meetings and events industry.
The research report brings optimism for growth centered on dramatic improvements in technology and a renewed focus on sustainability, wellness and inclusivity. With almost half of organizations operating with a dispersed workforce, the 2023 Forecast shines a light on the vital role of on site meetings for building corporate culture.
