How do large companies decide where to hold meetings in a big city like NYC? There are hundreds of options if not more. Has anyone participated in this process and can you please shed some insight?

Trying to do some creative work for a meeting space in the city and needing to know whether big companies (e.g. Citibank, etc.) have in-house meeting planners, hire others to find the best spaces, or some other option. How do they get started, find a hotel, etc.? If they need conference spaces, do they get recs from the hotels? Apologies if this is all too basic. It's really hard to figure out the pathway from idea to meeting!
Any light you can shed on this would be so helpful to me! Thank you.
