In the United States, Nashville and Austin dominate the list with three properties each.

Cvent named the Omni Nashville as the No. 1 meeting hotel in the United States.

On first glance, the cities of Nashville, Prague, Dubai and Sydney don’t have much in common. If you look closely, however, you’ll see that each has a thriving meetings industry, the crown jewel of which is at least one property that has just been named one of the Top Meeting Hotels in the world by meetings technology company Cvent.

Each year, Cvent ranks the top hotels for meetings in each of four global regions based on booking activity -- including total requests for proposal and conversion rate -- on its venue-sourcing platform, the Cvent Supplier Network. Published last week, this year’s lists are topped by the Omni Nashville Hotel in the United States, Hilton Prague in Europe, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai in the Middle East and Africa, and the Hyatt Regency Sydney in Asia Pacific.

Of special note, Dubai is home to eight of the top 10 hotels in the Middle East and Africa; Singapore scores four in Asia Pacific; and in the United States, Austin and Nashville score three properties each.

“The hotels featured on this year’s lists are elevating their group-business strategy through innovative digital marketing and quick and complete online responses to RFPs -- which is exactly what event professionals want,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent Hospitality Cloud. “Our Top Meeting Hotels lists are consistently used by event organizers to find great hotels and by hoteliers looking to set themselves apart to increase their property’s group business revenue.”
