    "Schaumburg's top fifty ranking is a tribute to both the quality and management of our village's hotels and our Schaumburg Convention Center,” said Al Larson, Mayor of The Village of Schaumburg.

The Woodfield Chicago Northwest Convention Bureau has announced that Schaumburg, IL ranked in Cvent’s list of the top 50 cities for meetings and events in the country for the second year in a row. Cvent developed the ranking based on meeting and event booking activity within the Cvent Supplier Network.

"We are honored to have Schaumburg ranked among the top meetings and events destination cities by Cvent," said Dave Parulo, President of The Woodfield Chicago Northwest Convention Bureau. "Earning a spot on this ranking validates the significant effort we put into making our region an attractive choice for corporate meetings, a critical part of our economy."

Nearly 5,700 U.S. cities featured on the Cvent Supplier Network were evaluated to create the list. Activity was tracked between July 2012 and June 2013 and the ranking was determined by the following:

Unique Request For Proposals Received
Total Room Nights

"Schaumburg's top fifty ranking is a tribute to both the quality and management of our village's hotels and our Schaumburg Convention Center," said Al Larson, Mayor of The Village of Schaumburg. "It also indicates the importance we place on the long term development of our hospitality and entertainment infrastructure."

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.
