TYSONS, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#APAClt;/agt;–Cvent,
a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality technology, today
released its annual list of the Top
50 Meeting Hotels in Asia Pacific
. The list was compiled by
analysing meeting and event booking activity through the Cvent
Supplier Network (CSN)
, one of the world’s largest venue sourcing
platforms. More than USD $16 billion and more than 42 million room
nights were sourced through the CSN in 2018, including an increase of
nearly 15% in sourcing volume in APAC over 2017. Cvent’s Top Meeting
Hotels lists rank venues based on MICE performance according to various
criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs) and conversion

“The venues featured on this year’s lists are elevating their MICE
strategy through innovative digital marketing and quick and complete
online responses to RFPs – which is exactly what event organisers want,”
said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent Hospitality
Cloud. “Our Top Meeting Hotels lists are consistently used by event
organisers to find great hotels and by hoteliers looking to set
themselves apart to increase their property’s group business revenue.”

“We’re thrilled to be recognised as the number one meeting hotel in Asia
Pacific for the second year in a row,” said Malcolm Zancanaro, general
manager at Hyatt Regency Sydney. “In the last 12 months we’ve had the
opportunity to welcome thousands of guests to our property for events
both large and small, so this accolade is really a testament to our
associates and their passion to deliver exceptional meetings every day.”
