Headshot of Chris Davidson of MMGY Travel Intelligence

Large meetings, conferences, and conventions are obviously a substantial contributor to Orlando’s tourism economy. Given the impact of the pandemic on tourism overall, it is important to understand evolving perspectives on the future of this industry segment to help guide strategy in 2022 and beyond. MMGY Global recently released the first wave of its quarterly survey, one that explores the mindset, intentions, and preferences of business event planners as well as the attendees. Hear the results of this research, sponsored in part by Visit Orlando, and how these insights can help inform planning decisions for Orlando moving forward.
