With over 2000 guests and 70% returning customers, the first meeting quarter at HUONE Helsinki shows great promise for the year 2022. With an increasing amount of returning trainings, workshops, and bigger event series in our pipeline, we are looking forward to a year of growth for business meetings and events.
We see the following trends:
- A growing number of returning customers, especially multi-day trainings and strategy days
- Buying behaviour shift towards online: booking requests from HUONE’s online reservation system covers over 30% of total requests
- A growing number of hybrid events: some in HUONE and some joining remotely
- A growing focus on the social aspect of the event such as networking, afterwork, team building, dinners etc.
- More stress on the overall experience, hence the growing demands for the creative surrounding HUONE provides.
It has been great to see so many familiar faces back to HUONE, and to meet them face to face! It is clear that people have been longing for the social aspect of working together. We really witnessed the rising demand for business meetings and events from the beginning of March clearly and the outlook for the Q2 is promising!
