The list was compiled by analysing group booking activity through its Cvent Supplier Network, which sourced more than $14.7 bn (£10.8bn) and more than 40 million room nights in 2017, over 715,000 events worldwide.
Hilton took the top three spots for generating the most MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing, Exhibitions) business in Europe, with Hilton Prague coming out on top followed by London Metropole and the The DoubleTree Amsterdam Centraal Station.
Hilton Prague general manager Michael Specking said: “I am truly proud to see Hilton Prague being recognised. Hilton Prague is a fantastic contemporary venue of 800 bedrooms and 5,000 sq. meters of convention space in a fabulous downtown location, and it’s the team’s focus to consistently deliver high level of services to make our promise happen: ‘Your vision, our passion.’
“We saw many large-scale renovations in the European market this year as venues vie for group business and look to attract the large number of international conferences hosted in the region,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud.
“With such big changes and new entries making it into the Top 50 list this year, and an increasing number of hotels keen to invest to meet the requirements of the 21st Century business traveller, it will be interesting to see this time next year who will take the top spots.”
