Eighty-eight percent of respondents to Convene’s 28th Annual Meetings Market Survey said that it was more difficult for potential event registrants to obtain visas in 2018 than in 2017. That’s a 6-percentage-point jump among those who cited more visa challenges in 2017 over 2016 — and a 30-percent increase in what planners said was their experience among potential registrants in 2016 compared to 2015.
