Within our own business, we are seeing growth in meetings activity across regions and client organizations, driven by a
trend toward corporate consolidation of meetings spend and global expansion of managed meetings programs. However, from a broader perspective, we are seeing some hesitancy in our industry. While this sentiment has yet to have a meaningful impact, we do expect this shift may result in some slowdown in the growth we have witnessed over the last couple of years.
Our survey respondents have indicated overarching program spend will likely be similar to 2016, but overall activity,
including number of meetings or number of attendees per meeting, may see a decline. But surprises might pave the way for 2017; especially in the technology domain.
