Knowland's June Group Meetings and Events Data Shows Continued Growth With Healthcare Leading the Corporate Segment

June 2021 Numbers Indicate a Resurgence of Top Tier Markets

USA, Arlington, Virginia. July 08, 2021

Knowland, the leader in AI-powered meetings and events data for hotels, convention and visitor bureaus, conference centers and other venues, today released its monthly meetings and events data for June. The numbers reveal that June U.S. group meetings volume increased 16.5 percent over last month.

Growth continues in the groups segment and while the sheer number of meetings have not returned to 2019 levels, meeting statistics have stabilized at or near 2019 levels. The average number of attendees have leveled out with 2019 numbers.

  • Average attendees - The average number of attendees per event in June 2021 was 59, compared to 58 in June 2019.
  • Average space used - The average space used in June 2021 was 2,509 square feet (down approximately 100 square feet from last month) while meetings in June 2019 averaged 2,131 square feet.
  • Individual market growth - The top five growth markets in June were Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Washington, DC.
  • Corporate meetings represent the largest market segment - The corporate segment represents 60.1 percent of meeting and event business with the healthcare segment taking the lead as the largest industry segment as meetings return.

Kristi White, chief product officer, Knowland, said: "June is one of those odd months because it is book-ended by two holiday weekends which typically impact meetings. However, even with the two holiday weeks, June managed double digit growth. Additionally, we've seen the resurgence of top tier markets this month. Chicago was the top growth market month over month (66.2 percent) and is notable because it's a market that was tightly locked down for an extended period. It has rebounded quickly and when we see gateway cities like Chicago rebounding, it's a healthy sign that meetings are returning to the hospitality landscape."

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
