Post date: Jan 4, 2018 10:02:03 PM

One hundred and sixty-three cities were compared across six convention site selection factors: Affordability, Ease of Access, Safety, Walkability, Promotional Appeal and a new measured factor, Weather.

The three best cities identified for large conventions are Las Vegas, Miami and San Francisco. All were in the top five last year. Seven second-tier cities were picked for mid-sized conventions using the same criteria – the top three in that category are Charlotte, Austin, TX and new comer Providence, RI. For smaller groups of less than 1000, Tacoma, WA again appears as a top pick followed by Silicon Valley and Chattanooga, TN, along with five others.
