The JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, which ranked 45th on the list, is the first property in the Middle East to make the newly expanded list.
Kevin Fliess, Vice President of marketing for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud said: “Hotels have become increasingly focused on developing more meeting and event business, and as such have become more sophisticated in competing for the most lucrative opportunities for their respective venues. Hotels continue to advance and expand their group marketing efforts and are increasingly embracing a data-driven approach to more effectively pursue the optimal meetings and events for their venue. This coupled with another year of notable investment in renovation and other upgrades have led to shifts in the rankings as competition remains fierce even in a robust market.”
