Convention and meeting destination Germany

(Forimmediaterelease.net) Convention and meeting destination Germany defends its number one position in Europe and second place world-wide in the new international country ranking.
Germany has defended its top position in Europe as a destination for meetings and conventions: According to the new International Association Meetings Market 2006 survey of the International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA), Germany is number one in Europe for the third time running and number two world-wide after the USA. And the other ranks have seen a lot of shifting: For example, Spain, last year’s number three, has dropped to number five in the new ranking.

“Germany’s good and constant position in this dynamic environment shows that we are doing the right thing and succeeding with our strategy,” Lutz P. Vogt, director of the GCB German Convention Bureau e.V., judges the result. The GCB markets Germany as a destination for conventions, meetings, events and incentives both on a national and international level, and is the place to contact for anybody planning an event in Germany.

The ICCA’s annual International Association Meetings Market statistics for the meetings and conventions market presents a comprehensive assessment of international meetings industry trends. To be analysed by the ICCA, association meetings must have at least 50 delegates, take place regularly and rotate between at least three countries. Founded in 1963 and based in Amsterdam, the ICCA has been gathering information on world-wide association events since 1972.
