Manchester has significantly strengthened its reputation as an international conference destination, jumping ten places above its 2012 position in the influential International Congress and Convention Association’s (ICCA) annual report.
The city now ranks 68th in the global table and shares company with cities like Chicago, Moscow, San Francisco and The Hague, whilst at a UK level Manchester has moved into third place becoming the leading non-capital destination.
ICCA rankings are used as an industry benchmark by destinations, associations and events planners across the world with a city’s position determined on how many international and conferences they held in the previous year.
A city’s ICCA ranking helps confirm its status as a high quality international destination for business tourism and is one of the first considerations of associations choosing a future host city.
