Hyatt Regency Sydney named Cvent’s top meeting hotel in APAC

Hyatt Regency Sydney has been named the top meeting hotel in Asia Pacific for the second consecutive year in Cvent’s annual list.

Melbourne and Sydney hotels secured 13 positions in Cvent’s annual Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Asia Pacific (APAC), which is compiled by analysing meeting and event booking activity through the Cvent Supplier Network.

“We’re thrilled to be recognised as the number one meeting hotel in Asia Pacific for the second year in a row,” said Malcolm Zancanaro, general manager at Hyatt Regency Sydney.

“In the last 12 months we’ve had the opportunity to welcome thousands of guests to our property for events both large and small, so this accolade is really a testament to our associates and their passion to deliver exceptional meetings every day.”

InterContinental Sydney secured 6th place, Hilton Sydney took 12th spot and Crown Melbourne ranked 18th – a move up in their respective positions on last year’s list. Two Australian hotels are new to the Top 50, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour (20th) and Sofitel Sydney Wentworth (37th).

“It is exciting to see an increased Australian presence in this year’s Top 50 Meeting Hotels in Asia Pacific,” said Chela Evans, director of sales, Cvent Australia.

“Meetings mean business, and the hotels featured on this year’s list are attracting top conferences and events to their venues by enhancing their group marketing efforts and expanding their offerings. After just two years in Melbourne, it’s been an honour collaborating with our hotel partners here in Australia to help them grow their group business and elevate their positioning within the global meetings and events marketplace.”

Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriott are the top three hotel chains represented on the Top 50 list.
