Impact Sentiment Study

In partnership with The Venetian Resort and IMEX Group, this survey measures sentiments related to recovery impact on the meeting and event industry. This study will provide insights into aspects our community feels will change when recovery begins—everything from the planning process to the experiences to the way we attend and beyond. Please participate in this study so your voice can be counted and help us all understand what our community perceives recovery will look like.

Results Coming Soon!


Meeting & Event Recovery Survey

In an effort to help track the industry’s re-emergence, MPI along with The Venetian Resort Las Vegas and the IMEX Group, have designed a Recovery Index. This Index provides our community with the ongoing ability to evaluate when meeting and event planners project industry recovery.

Your participation will provide a real-time glimpse from those at the front lines. We will be gathering and sharing this data twice weekly with the meetings community so that we’re all positioned to thrive once we get back to work. By supporting each other, we will come out of this stronger. Please take this survey regularly to report your evolving situation.
