Hilton Prague named Europe’s best hotel for meetings and events for 2nd year

Hilton Prague was named the best from top hotels for meetings and events in Europe by event management technology company, Cvent, Inc. It is the second year in a row Hilton Prague is being recognised as No.1 amongst Top 50 meeting hotels in Europe.

The annual list was compiled by analysing MICE booking activity through its Cvent Supplier Network, which sourced more than $16bn and more than 42 million room nights in 2018. 

Michael Specking, Hilton Prague general manager said: “I am honoured that Hilton Prague has been repetitively recognised. A full renovation of our almost 800 rooms is nearly complete, and our flexible 5,000 m2 of meeting and convention space, bright atrium lobby, three restaurants, two bars, and 2,000 m2 of leisure facilities offer group guests all the amenities they look for when attending events. Add to this our hotel’s central location and most importantly a great team focused on delivering high standards of service, Hilton Prague is the real creative metropolis with everything under one roof and is the right choice for inspired events of all kinds.”

The Top 10 hotels listed were:

  1. Hilton Prague
  2. Melia Castilla Hotel & Convention Center Madrid
  3. InterContinental Vienna
  4. Hilton Barcelona
  5. Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile
  6. Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona
  7. Le Meridien Etoile in Paris
  8. Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center
  9. Movenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre
  10. Hilton London Metropole

 “Cvent congratulates Hilton Prague on this recognition as a leading hotel for meetings and events,” said Chris McAndrews, vice president of marketing for the Cvent Hospitality Cloud. “The venues featured on this year’s list continue to elevate their MICE business through innovative marketing tactics and dedicated efforts to meet the needs of the thousands of event planners using the Cvent Supplier Network every day to select their venues.”  

Hilton Prague has 791 guest rooms, which will be fully renovated until the end of 2019, and 5,000sqm of convention and banquet space annually host over 500 events of all types and sizes, catering for more than 70,000 delegates.

Cvent evaluated hotel properties that generated business through the Cvent Supplier Network from January 2018 through December 2018. The properties were ranked according to various criteria, including total requests for proposals (RFPs), awarded RFPs, total room nights, awarded room nights, major metropolitan area (MMA) market share, conversion rate, response rate, and the hotel’s unique profile visits in the Cvent Supplier Network. The criteria are designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific regions.
