Jul 11, 2023

The June 2023 Meetings Industry Pulse Survey included data collected from June 14 to July 1 from 528 meeting planners, including corporate, association third-party and other planners.

Key takeaways

  • 55% of respondents reported a "more optimistic" outlook during the past six weeks for their organizations' meetings and events. While 30% reported "no change" in their outlook, 15% said they were less optimistic;
  • That optimism is echoed within planners' booking activity, as 41% of respondents said their primary focus, as it pertains to in-person events, is booking new events;
  • Meeting organizers' top concerns remain rising costs—including airline pricing—and meeting budgets, low hotel staffing levels and airline service.
