2023 Trends in the Meeting and Event Industry

Virtual Events

During the pandemic, there were many virtual events held on Zoom and other online platforms. The pandemic accelerated the trend of virtual and hybrid events, and this trend will continue to grow in 2023. As a result, event planners with experience in designing and executing both in-person and virtual events will be in high demand.

Sustainable Events

Sustainability has been a growing trend in the event industry for a while, but it is expected to take center stage in 2023. Event planners with experience in planning eco-friendly events will be in high demand.

Niche Events

The events industry will continue to see a rise in niche events catering to specific audiences and interests. There is also a continued trend towards smaller, more niche audiences and more regional events. This will open new opportunities for planners who specialize in certain types of events such as corporate, cultural or sustainable events.

In-Person Events

Businesses and organizations have realized the importance of in-person meetings and events for building relationships, networking, and face-to-face interaction. As a result, there will be an increasing demand for face-to-face meetings, events and gatherings, and a subsequent increase in demand for meeting and event planners who can create and execute successful in-person events. 

Meeting and event planning is an exciting and dynamic field that has seen significant growth in recent years. With the industry expected to continue to expand in 2023 and beyond, there has never been a better time to consider a career in meeting and event planning!
