Prices Through the Roof: Maritz's Steve O'Malley on Business Events Trends
Prices for meetings and events essentials have skyrocketed and show no signs of easing, especially room rates in the upscale hotel and resort segment that are the bedroom of business events.
In fact, the upper tiers of the hotel chain scale are experiencing room rate increases hovering around a jaw-dropping 30%.
