Elevating conference performance: Comprehensive benchmarking with Conference Trends

pexels-fauxels-3182826

How Conference Trends works

The Conference Trends solution efficiently retrieves conference data every day from integrated facilities, utilizing both automated data aggregation and manual reporting options. This robust approach guarantees a comprehensive collection of data. Importantly, the benchmarking is performed in relation to a compset that you define. This compset must be large enough to ensure the anonymity and integrity of the data. Once the data is collected, our system processes it to generate accurate and relevant KPIs and benchmarks. Users can easily access these insights through a user-friendly web interface, download them in Excel format for detailed analysis, subscribe to regular updates via email, or even import them into their own data warehouse if desired. By customizing the compset, Conference Trends ensures that the benchmarks are not only precise but also directly applicable to your hotel's specific market segment.
