It’s not uncommon these days to see restaurant staff singing “Happy Birthday” while presenting a table with a decadent dessert multiple times in a night. At hotels, there is a steady stream of well-dressed wedding guests strolling through the lobby, searching for the ballroom.
Events are back, and people are ready to go out and celebrate.
Tripleseat, the leading web-based sales and event management platform for restaurants, hotels, and unique venues, announced trends from a recent survey about events and event planning for the rest of 2022.
Tripleseat surveyed 500 consumers about their event plans.
Top event trends:
- Birthdays are the No. 1 reason for hosting an event
- The summer months are the top season for hosting events
- Some of the top amenities party planners are looking for in an event venue include enough restrooms for guests, a bar package, and a dance floor
- 61% said they were very comfortable planning the event online themselves
“Events are 30%+ of a venue’s revenue and growing,” said Jonathan Morse, CEO of Tripleseat. “The last 12 months have been record-breaking for the number of people looking for a venue to host their event. There is no sign that this desire to have an event to celebrate a life occasion or for business to bring co-workers together is slowing down.”
