TSE Analyzes Trends in Faith-Based Meetings & Conventions 


Oceanside, CA – More than 8 million people attended religious meetings in 2010, according to the Religious Conference Management Association (RCMA). Despite the weak economy, faith-based events have weathered the storm better than most, but dips in attendance, as well as attrition fees, have translated into shorter booking windows. At the same time, it’s a buyer’s market for many religious meetings and conventions as more cities and hotels vie for this business. A special feature in the January edition of Trade Show Executive (TSE), written by Contributing Editor Danica Tormohlen, takes a closer look at these and other trends in this sector.

TSE’s drill-down into the world of religious meetings and conventions includes a detailed look at how these show managers are managing costs and what’s next in 2012 and beyond. In addition, TSE provides key stats from RCMA’s 2011 member study. There’s also a case study on The Catalyst Conference, one of the fastest-growing faith-based event brands.
