Choosing the Best Convention Destinations for 2021

A deep dive into Northstar’s annual ranking of the top 25 domestic and international cities for large events.


This webinar originally took place on June 23, 2021.

Selecting a convention destination can be difficult in the best of times, but Covid-19 has added new factors to the decision-making process. Northstar Meetings Group's Convention Cities Index identifies the best destinations for large-scale events and serves as an essential resource to aid planners in the selection process. The rankings are determined by a variety of factors, including available exhibit space, nearby hotel rooms, average hotel cost, travel time from the nearest international airport to the convention center, the number of daily flights, and local risk factors — including the prevalence of Covid-19.

During this webcast, NMG's vice president and content director Loren Edelstein will join associate editor Elise Schoening to discuss the methodology and findings of the second-annual Convention Cities Index. Michael Becker, CEO of the safety-analytics company GeoSure, will join the conversation to explain the key role safety plays in the industry's recovery.
