Macroeconomic Determinants of Business Meetings Worldwide

Main Article Content

Rafał Zbyrowski


The article focuses on trying to explain the cross-sectional variation in the number of business meetings relative to countries. The author subjects to empirical analysis a group of macroeconomic factors that can objectively determine the phenomenon under study. The basic research tool is an econometric model on the basis of which specific conclusions were formulated. The study uses source data from widely published reports, mainly by the ICCA, an association that conducts research on the structure and size of the business meetings market.
