2019 ICCA country and city rankings: A valuable opportunity to profile your destination!

May 05, 2020

The annual ICCA country and city rankings are one of the most eagerly anticipated reports in the global meetings industry and provides a valuable opportunity to profile your destination as a trusted partner for association meetings.

The public release date of the new 2019 country and city rankings by number of meetings is Tuesday 12 May 2020 at noon (CET). To allow members to prepare the release of their new position in the ICCA 2019 rankings, we release the new figures a couple of days earlier under embargo to members only in the Destination Comparison Tool in My ICCA, on Thursday 7 May. 

On this day, we will send all official ICCA contacts a notification email when the new figures are available. When accessing the new figures before the public release date, we kindly ask you to not publicise any news on the 2019 figures before next Tuesday 12 May at noon (CET), when ICCA will send out a press release to announce the new country and city top 20 rankings by number of international association meetings.

This ensures rankings are published simultaneously, avoiding confusion and allowing time for members to prepare their own news releases.

The public abstract with the full 2019 country and city rankings will be published in mid-June.
