Event Planner Trends Survey

Planner Trends Survey

Welcome to the 2020 Event/Meeting Planner Trends Survey.

Our industry is experiencing unprecedented challenges. Our goal for this year’s survey is to gather information about the pandemic’s impact on how events are being planned and its impact on planners such as yourself, so that we can share the collective results with the industry. We need your input to make this happen.

As our way of saying “Thank You,” you can enter a draw by completing the contact information at the end of the survey for a chance to win your choice of an Apple iPad or an Apple Watch! The results of this industry research study will be published in the October 2020 issue of ConventionSouth Magazine. Survey will close Friday, August 28, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Individual results will be kept strictly confidential.

Please take the time to complete this important survey. The results can benefit us all.

Thank you.
