The ICCA Statistics Reports are based on the ICCA Association Database, which means the figures cover meetings organised by international associations according to this criteria: a meeting must take place on a regular basis, host at least 50 participants, and rotate between a minimum of three countries to be included in the Database. ICCA’s Association Database is designed as a sales and marketing resource for its members to target future international association meetings, which is why it does not include one-off events or those which do not move between locations.
The full ICCA Statistics Report is only available to ICCA members. International associations, press, universities, students and consultants can download a public abstract of the latest report, including comprehensive rankings for all countries and cities.
