A study conducted by Destinations Analysts, Inc for the DMO industry in partnership with Destinations International & Miles addresses metrics meeting planners use to evaluate and report the success of their meetings and events. The survey revealed that the way planners measure success, namely by attendee satisfaction and cost, can be seen in the attributes they highly value in a meeting destination: geographic location, hotel quality, meeting facilities, safety, popularity and amenities, as well as hotel rates and the overall cost of holding a meeting in the destination. While all planners are most deterred from choosing a destination by hotel rates and overall destination costs, differences between planners in how they are affected by other attributes provide further insight into what these various planner type value. Both corporate and third-party planners citied limited air lift as a top deterrent.
Not all destinations have easy direct and plentiful air accessibility and many may be very inconvenient and expensive to access from common attendee gateways.
