This study aims to identify the factors that drive or hinder convention venue to implement sustainable practices. The response from 136 Asian convention venue senior managers shows that improving the corporation image of the venue is the primary driving factor for management team to engage in sustainable practices, while lack of resources is the major hindering factor. The significant differences in the driving and hindering factors were identified among management teams from different-sized convention venues in Asia. The importance and suitability of sustainable practices were revealed from the perspective of different-sized convention venues. The insights from this study deepen the understanding of sustainability in convention management and provide valuable implications for industry practitioners.
