Almost two thirds of corporate event organisers are planning a face-to-face event before the end of the year, according to a report by hotel and venue group, The Celtic Collection.
The collection’s meetings and events sentiment survey of 266 business event organisers was carried out in conjunction with ICC Wales to mark the return of live events and gauge the industry demand for a return to face-to-face conferences and events.
65 per cent of respondents said they are planning to hold a face-to-face event before the end of 2021. A quarter of those surveyed plan to hold more than 10 events in the next 12 months, and more than half say they would not be looking for a hybrid element. There was a preference for organising smaller meetings of under 200 people, and 37 per cent are planning to accommodate under 50 people at their next event.
