Hilton Prague Named #1 Hotel for Meetings and Events in Europe By Cvent
PRAGUE - Hilton Prague was named as a top hotel for meetings and events in Europe by industry-leading event management technology company Cvent, Inc. This is the second year in a row that Hilton Prague is being recognized as No. 1 amongst the top 50 meeting hotels in Europe. The annual list was compiled by analyzing MICE booking activity through its Cvent Supplier Network, which sourced more than $16 billion and more than 42 million room nights in 2018.
Michael Specking, Hilton Prague general manager said, “I am honored that Hilton Prague has been repeatedly recognized. A full renovation of our almost 800 rooms is nearly complete, and our flexible 5,000 m2 of meeting and convention space, bright atrium lobby, three restaurants, two bars, and 2,000 m2 of leisure facilities offer group guests all the amenities they look for when attending events. Add to this our hotel’s central location, and most importantly, a great team focused on delivering high standards of service, Hilton Prague is a real creative metropolis with everything under one roof and is the right choice for inspired events of all kinds.”
“Cvent congratulates Hilton Prague on this recognition as a leading hotel for meetings and events,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for Cvent Hospitality Cloud. “The venues featured on this year’s list continue to elevate their MICE business through innovative marketing tactics and dedicated efforts to meet the needs of the thousands of event planners using the Cvent Supplier Network every day to select their venues.”
The award-winning Hilton Prague is a centrally located business hotel just a few steps from the heart of the charming Czech capital. Set in a bright and contemporary design space, the hotel’s 791 guest rooms will be fully renovated at the end of 2019, and the property’s 5,000 m2 of flexible convention and banquet space host over 500 events of all types and sizes annually, catering to more than 70,000 delegates. The passionately hospitable hotel team uses proven processes and a personalized approach to deliver extraordinary experiences for groups ranging in size from 10 to 2,000 participants.
Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the Cvent Supplier Network from January 2018 through December 2018. The properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area (MMA) market share, conversion rate, response rate, and the hotel's unique profile visits in the Cvent Supplier Network. The criteria are designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific regions.
