Return of the ICCA Country – and City – Rankings for 2022
Return of the ICCA Country – and City – Rankings for 2022
TOHOLOGY, 23 May 2023

The International Congress and Convention Association is pleased to announce the return of annual “ICCA Country – and City – Rankings for the year 2022” after an absence of two years (the report is available below). The publication of the rankings coincides with the World Health Organization’s recent declaration that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, thereby emphasising the return to normalcy for the association meetings industry.

At the end of 2022, ICCA made the proactive decision to revert to normal rankings again based on the observation that approximately 85% of all meetings were held in-person. However, certain countries and territories were still working within the confines of COVID-19 restrictions.

ICCA’s Research team identified over 10,500 meetings of which some 9,000 meetings were held in-person, being either unaffected by COVID-19 or held in a hybrid format. As the association meetings industry is still catching up to the numbers of the last pre-pandemic year (13,254 meetings in 2019), ICCA conducted a brief country and city comparative analysis based on rankings rather than number of meetings. In addition, the association will provide context to in-person versus planned meetings showing how these statistics can be best utilised.

  • Senthil Gopinath, ICCA CEO: “This is tremendous undertaking by our team, one that is most welcomed by our members because the ICCA Country – and City – Rankings always generates huge industry interest. It’s heartening to see the drive towards in-person meetings is once more very strong and we predict this trend will grow throughout the coming year.”
