Mumbai among Cvent’s top meeting destinations in Asia

mumbaiThe economic capital of India has made its way to Cvent’s top ten list of meetings destinations for 2019 in Asia. Cvent, a market-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider, released its annual lists of the Top Meeting Destinations for meetings and events worldwide. The lists were compiled based on meeting and event booking activity across Cvent’s venue sourcing sites, including the Cvent Supplier Network, through which more than $16 billion in business was sourced in 2018.

“Business events add $1.5 trillion to the global GDP and because of this positive economic impact, the cities featured in this year’s Top Meeting Destinations lists have put significant time and resources into attracting more group business to their locales,” said Chris McAndrews, Vice President- Marketing, Cvent Hospitality Cloud.

Due to increased sourcing volume to the Asia Pacific region, Cvent unveiled two additional lists this year – Asia and Australia & Oceania – which were previously represented in one Asia Pacific list.

The top 10 cities in Asia for 2019 are:

  1. Singapore
  2. Bangkok, Thailand
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  5. Shanghai, China
  6. Tokyo, Japan
  7. Seoul, South Korea
  8. Beijing, China
  9. Bali, Indonesia
  10. Mumbai, India
