Launch of New Research - The UK Conference and Meeting Survey 2024

Launch of New Research - The UK Conference and Meeting Survey 2024

UK conference and meeting venues are being encouraged to take part in the 2024 ‘UK Conference and Meeting Survey’ (UKCAMS), which is being launched today. This important research into the UK’s conference and meetings sector, now in its 31st 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 2024 UKCAMS research asks UK venues to provide data on their conference and meeting business during the calendar year 2023. The survey 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, AI activity in the business events sector, international business trends).

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.

UK conference and meeting venues which take part in the 2024 research will receive a complimentary, personalised summary report enabling them to benchmark their performance in 2023 against other comparable venues. The online questionnaire can be accessed at:

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

VisitBritain / VisitEngland Head of Business Events, Paul Black, said: “VisitBritain is pleased to support the ‘UK Conference and Meeting Survey’ in 2024, a valuable tool for us to demonstrate the importance of our business events sector to the UK economy and to Government. There are some important research questions for venues to answer alongside the business level assessment, so we would be very grateful for their participation in supporting this survey.”

Tony Rogers says: “The UKCAMS research has a proven track record as a source of reliable and robust information and market intelligence. It helps venues and destinations, as well as other industry stakeholders, to assess their business performance and to understand the latest sector trends in order to target their marketing and investment decisions to greatest effect.”
