Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

Aventri’s list includes a unique collection of venues such as casinos, museums, famous baseball fields and several restaurants. Each venue belongs to one of Aventri’s Top 10-Rated Cities for Meetings and Events which are: Las Vegas, New York, San Diego, Orlando, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and Dallas.

Venue highlights include the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville; Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix; the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and Planet Hollywood, Orlando.

The restaurants from these top-rated cities specifically share insights on how they accommodate groups, what they like best about their cities or neighborhoods, and the inspiration behind their restaurant. The featured restaurants include Le Berndardin, New York City; Buddy V’s, Las Vegas; and The Optimist, Atlanta.

The 44-page guide serves as a resource to help planners with everything from finding the ideal city to securing the best fit venue. To view the full list of venues, click here. Did your favorite venue make the cut?
