Portrait of Meeting & Convention Travel

In 2021, MMGY Travel Intelligence fielded a quarterly tracking survey to understand the mindset, intentions and preferences of both meeting planners as well as meeting, conference and convention attendees. Business event attendees ultimately drive the future direction of the M&C industry. So, having an informed perspective on what these attendees think and comparing it to the current perspectives of meeting professionals provides substantial insight into the landscape likely to emerge as this vital industry recovers.

  • What factors truly drive attendees’ decisions to attend conferences and how has COVID-19 impacted them? 
  • How do attendees feel about virtual and hybrid meetings and how do they think their behavior may be impacted in 2021 and beyond? 
  • What types of venues do prospective attendees prefer and how do these preferences differ from what planners expect to use?
  • What barriers, other than the obvious health and safety concerns, need to be eliminated or mitigated for this industry to fully recover?

MMGY Travel Intelligence will field this study again in 2022, and LIMITED SPONSORSHIPS ARE NOW AVAILABLE! Sponsors have the ability to include custom questions in each of the four quarterly surveys. contact us for more information.

Portrait Of American International Travelers™

MMGY Global, in conjunction with USTOA, presents a comprehensive national survey asking questions of targeted American travelers about outbound travel from the U.S. to international destinations.

This report profiles American travelers with an annual household income of over US $100,000 who have a passport and have traveled outside of North America in the past two years. The survey unveils the underlying motivations and, most importantly, future intentions that influence travel behavior. The results will provide you with actionable insights into the travel habits of American international travelers, allowing you to enhance future marketing and brand communication strategies.

Destination Prospect Profile

USTOA and MMGY will develop a Destination Prospect Profile to meet your research needs. This analysis is a useful tool to develop or refine your marketing and communications strategy and your target traveler segment. It also enables you to target specific groups of travelers without conducting your own primary research.
