The 2019 rankings published by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) place Zurich with 51 ICCA-conform events in 55th position worldwide, together with Manila, and remains therefore at the previous year's level.
Zurich is and remains the most attractive Swiss city, particularly for association conventions in the technology sector with fewer than 500 delegates. Its largest Swiss rival, Geneva, ranks 84th with 34 meetings, while the third highest-placed Swiss city, Basel, is 110th with 27 meetings. The list is again topped by Paris, with 237 meetings in 2019. In the rankings by country, Switzerland holds the very respectable 17th place worldwide.
The ICCA Ranking is published annually. Included in the statistics are international association meetings that are held on a regular basis, are attended by at least 50 delegates, and rotate between at least three countries. The ICCA was founded in 1963 by a group of travel agents to exchange information on international congresses and conventions. Nowadays it is the largest non-profit trade organization for the meetings industry, and has over 1,100 members in almost 100 different countries. These suppliers come from a variety of sectors, including destination marketing, meetings management, meetings support, and transport.
