NORWALK, Conn. — Events management software company Aventri has released its list of The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States. The free guide highlights the company’s top 10 venue picks in each of its 10 top-rated meeting and event cities. The guide also includes recommended activities and restaurants in those cities.
“Many studies show two factors are key to attendee satisfaction: venue location and activities in the host city,” explains Michael Burns, chief revenue officer, Aventri.
The 44-page guide features a curated list of 100 venues in the 10 most sought-after event cities in the U.S. based on sourcing activity during the past year on the Aventri Strategic Venue Sourcing platform.
For each city, Aventri lists 10 venues, selected on the basis of criteria such as capacity, amenities, uniqueness, proximity to local attractions and ability to create immersive, engaging attendee experiences.
In addition to hotels and convention centres, the list includes innovative venues such as cathedrals, botanical gardens, wineries, casinos, cultural centres, famous baseball fields, museums, breweries, historic mansions, zoos and aircraft carriers.
On the restaurant side, Aventri interviewed chefs and managers at culinary hot spots in its Top 10 Cities. These local experts share how they accommodate groups, where they get their inspiration, and what they like best about their neighbourhood and city.
