The U.S. and Germany continue to be the most popular association-meeting destinations, according to the latest rankings by the International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA).
As has been the case since 2004, the U.S. and Germany are the number one and two countries respectively, measured by the number of international meetings organized by planners in 2009.
In this year’s ranking, the U.S. widened its gap with Germany by 32 events, compared to the 2008 figures. Spain remains third. Italy jumps from sixth to fourth place, with an increase of 54 events compared to 2008, and the U.K. remains fifth. China and Austria (which shares tenth place with The Netherlands) are newcomers to the top 10.
The ICCA rankings cover meetings organized by international associations which take place on a regular basis and rotate between at least three countries.
