Face-to-face gatherings may have returned to pre-pandemic levels for many organizations, but that doesn’t mean the business events landscape resembles 2019.

For our November 2023 CMP Series and cover story. Convene editors have culled the latest — and conducted our own — research and asked experts to provide insights about what to expect next. While uncertainty remains a fact of life, we hope this forecast will enable you to assess where we are now and to anticipate what the next year may bring. Below are links to those insights, starting with the 30th Meetings Market Survey, research Convene conducted over the summer. We also offer research on travel, event technology, lodging, and the workplace.
