Berlin has joined the ranks of the top three international conference destinations, according to the latest statistics published by the International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA). Having hosted 172 events held by international associations in the past year, the German capital moved up one position to become the third most popular city for conferences and conventions in the world. Berlin is behind Vienna (195 events) and Paris (181) but ahead of Madrid (164 events) and Barcelona (154).
“Berlin is moving to the top of the international congress business. With additional event capacities, such as the new CityCube Berlin, the city is also well-positioned for the convention business for the long term and is well able to handle the diversity of the requests,” said Klaus Wowereit, Governing Mayor of Berlin.
Since 2008, the number of organizations holding conferences in Berlin has steadily increased. The German capital has been successfully asserting its status as a top conference location for the past eight years. The ICCA ranking is an important indicator in the international congress business. It helps organizers decide where to hold their events.
