Meanwhile, JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach rose in the Top 10 Meetings Hotels ranking to secure this year's top spot, as the hotel's proximity to the Central Business District, cutting-edge audio-visual offerings and flexible meeting space make it an ideal host venue for event planners. 

Newcomers to the top 10 include Hilton Tokyo (No. 4), Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen's Park (No. 5), voco Orchard Singapore (No. 7), Hilton Kuala Lumpur (No. 8), and Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park (No. 9).

The Annual Cvent Top Lists have become go-to resources for event organisers worldwide looking for incredible hotels and destinations to host their events. 

Cvent has evaluated more than 12,500 cities worldwide listed on the Cvent Supplier Network (CSN) for Cvent Top Meeting Destinations, in which activity was tracked between January 2023 and December 2023. 

For Cvent Top Meeting Hotels, Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the CSN in the same period with properties ranked  according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, and total room nights.
