2022 bookings 140% ahead of 2019
Venues and agencies across the board are reporting high levels of business for 2022. For example the large conference and meeting venues in Bedfordshire, Wyboston Lakes has reported that bookings for conferences, meetings and training events for 2022 are currently over 140% ahead of 2019, alongside what it says is a record number of large events from leading pharmaceutical companies taking place this Autumn.
According to the venue, other sectors that are proving buoyant and the keenest to return to in-person events include government (and associated bodies); associations; professional services, technology, education and training providers, financial services and construction.
Short lead times continues as a major trend in 2021, even for relatively sizable events, the venue reports.
These findings are backed up by the latest statistics from Trinity Event Solutions that show pharmaceutical event bookings have increased for the agency by 476% in 2022 compared to this year, followed by the finance and insurance industry, which is up by 21%. New business has increased by 266%, compared to 2020, and is up by 14% on 2019.
