Join us for a sneak peek into the results of our industry-leading survey of meeting planners. Find out what your peers are experiencing, and what they see coming down the line, as well as discover what top hospitality industry experts predict about the meetings, conventions, trade shows, events and incentives planning environment next year.
Will rates continue to rise as they have in key markets during 2012? Do meeting planners think attendance will increase or decrease? Will air fares escalate? What do your fellow planners report about their meetings budget expectations for next year? We’ll also give you the tools to gauge which destinations may be cost-prohibitive and which may be a bargain buy for your 2013 meetings, incentives and events.
