Your survey response will help measure the economic impact and significance of the global business meetings and events industry. Thank you!

This study is led by the Events Industry Council in conjunction with Oxford Economics.

The survey should take about 20 minutes. Responses are confidential.

Important definition:

For the purpose of this study, the term "business meeting or event" refers to a gathering of 10 or more participants for a minimum of 4 hours in a contracted venue, in a physical setting, in-person.

Business meetings and events include conventions, conferences, congresses, trade shows and exhibitions (including business-to-business and business-to-consumer exhibitions), product launches to consumers, incentive events, corporate/business meetings, and other events which meet the aforementioned criteria.

Business meetings and events exclude social activities (wedding receptions, holiday parties, etc.), permanently established formal educational activities (primary, secondary or university level education), purely recreational activities (such as concerts and shows of any kind), and political campaign rallies.
