Survey: Europe, Asia Tops for International Meetings; South America & Middle East on the Rise




A new survey report by Marketing Challenges International found that meeting planners saw a strong year in 2014 for international association meetings outside of North America.

With a growing economy in the United States and consecutive years of increasing meeting attendance and budgets, the mood looks optimistic for 2015 and beyond. 

Planners report that a shift is taking place among decision makers in the industry—instead of site selection committees, more associations are turning to executives to make final decisions in destination selection. 

And while Europe and Asia remain the most popular regions for hosting international meetings, planners indicate that they are willing to explore emerging regions such as South America and the Middle East.
