ICCA published the Country & City Rankings at IMEX Frankfurt.

The ICCA research team analyzed more than 10,000 meetings in 2023. The number of meetings held among ICCA members and the steep rise of Asian destinations shows that the industry is on its way back to normality after the pandemic. Despite challenges such as long-term planning during Covid, the events industry is proving resilient.

Profiles for venues and sports event providers have now been integrated into the business intelligence database, improving usability and simplifying data collection for members. Despite the current global uncertainties, ICCA expects continued growth in the meetings and events sector in the coming years.

“We’re heartened to see that the world of meetings and events has continued to grow and thrive in the face of ongoing challenges and a rapidly changing landscape, including digital and real-life threats, international conflicts, and unfolding geopolitical upheaval”, says Senthil Gopinath, ICCA Chief Executive Officer.
