Grass Roots Meetings & Events will deliver the latest version of their highly respected Meetings Industry Report this summer. The independent report, which was originally published on an annual basis between 2008 and 2012, details key procurement trends, statistics, facts and insights sourced from planners and buyers in the meetings and events community.
Those wishing to contribute to the 2017/18 report can do so at http://bit.ly/MIR17Survey
The report will include a wealth of case studies demonstrating best practice – particularly on the subjects of strategic meetings management programmes (SMMP), delegate registration and technology for events.
When published, it will be available in both print and digital formats, and will be vital reading for the meetings and events community as well as those in corporate, agency and association roles with an interest in the power and impact of meetings on organisational success and employee development and learning.
There will also be a section dedicated to the benchmarking of rates, as well as venue listings covering those refurbished or opening in 2017/18.
“The return of one of the industry’s leading reports comes as Grass Roots renews its focus on our core business of SMMP and delegate management,” comments David Taylor, Managing Director, Grass Roots Meetings & Events. “As one of the UK’s largest agencies, we have unique access to a wealth of data and resources that allow us to truly understand the whole of the market and deliver a report that delivers real value for both contributors and readers.”
The final report is expected to be published in Summer 2017 with early research results available from April 2017.
