Cvent Unveils 2019 List of Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Europe

Annual list highlights top performing MICE hotels
24th May, 2019

 Cvent, a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality technology, has released its annual list of the Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Europe. 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. Cvent’s Top Meeting Hotels lists rank venues based on MICE performance according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs) and conversion rate.

"In Europe, we saw a nearly 20 percent increase in RFP volume year-over-year and hotels 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 MICE revenue.”

“I am very honored that Hilton Prague has been repetitively recognised,” said Michael Specking, Hilton Prague general manager. “A full renovation of our almost 800 rooms is nearly complete, and our flexible 5.000 sq. meters of meeting and convention space, bright atrium lobby, 3 restaurants, 2 bars, and 2,000 sq. meters of leisure facilities offer group guests all the amenities they look for when attending events. Add to this our hotel’s central location and most importantly a great team focused on delivering high standards of service, Hilton Prague is the real creative metropolis with everything under one roof and is the right choice for inspired events of all kinds.”

To address increased demand and buyer preferences, Cvent unveiled additional Top Meeting Hotel lists which segment venues further based on commonly searched attributes including meeting space square footage and region-specific locales. Additional lists for European hotels include: Top 50 Meeting Hotels in the U.K., Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Germany, and Top 25 Independent Hotels in Europe.


Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the Cvent Supplier Network from January 2018 through December 2018. The properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area (MMA) market share, conversion rate, response rate, and the hotel's unique profile visits in the Cvent Supplier Network. The criteria are designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in the U.S., Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific regions.
