In its December print issue, HOTELS spoke with The Gettys Group Principal, Meg Prendergast, in an article on small meeting spaces. Titled “The Small Meeting Scores Big”, the piece covers the rising demand for experiential and non-traditional meeting spaces in hotels.
“The experiential meeting is on the rise,” the article begins. “According to American Express’ 2018 Global Meetings and Events forecast, hoteliers are predicting an increase of almost 4% in demand for nontraditional meeting facilities.”
“People don’t really live their lives in really regimented rows of tables with banquet chairs anywhere else outside of that kind of venue,” said Prendergast. “So in essence, new meeting spaces are trying to better reflect how people actually gather in today’s world.”
The Getty Group’s interior design work on the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel is featured within the article as well.
