MPI winter outlook report: Budgets are tight
from Meetings and Conventions
The winter 2017 Meetings Outlook report from Meeting Professionals International, released Feb. 1, found that the rate of growth in the meeting and event industry is slowing slightly. While 58 percent of respondents in the latest survey projected favorable business conditions for the coming year, that figure has declined from 67 percent reported in the fall Outlook. The research also found that planners are dealing with tight budgets and a stronger need to prove return on investment.
