UK conference and meeting venues are being encouraged to take part in the 2023 ‘UK Conference and Meeting Survey’ (UKCAMS), which is being launched today. This vital research into the UK’s conference and meetings sector, now in its 30th consecutive year, has a specific focus on the value and volume of the market and the performance of meeting venues. It also highlights key market trends identified by venues.

The UKCAMS research is particularly important this year as we seek to establish how much of a recovery has been achieved by the industry following the Covid-19 pandemic. To this end, the 2023 survey asks UK venues to provide data on their conference and meeting business during the calendar year 2022. The questionnaire covers the regular questions on the volume and value of the sector but also includes important questions on trends and key issues (for example, venue sustainability practices and policies, the post-EU departure trading climate, international business opportunities).

Findings of the UKCAMS research are widely used to:

  • Demonstrate the volume of the UK conference and meetings sector and its value to individual venues and to the national economy
  • Highlight key trends from a venue or supply-side perspective
  • Ensure continuing support and investment for the industry at national, regional and local levels.

All UK conference and meeting venues are strongly urged to take part in the 2023 research, which entails completion of a short questionnaire. Those that do so will receive a complimentary, personalised summary report enabling them to benchmark their performance in 2022 against other comparable venues. The online questionnaire can be accessed at:

The UKCAMS research is being carried out by Tony Rogers and by Richard Smith of RJS Associates. The results are expected to be published in June.
