Vienna Number One Worldwide in Cities Hosting International Congresses

May 17, 2012

U.S. takes first in the country category

For the seventh time in succession, Vienna has topped the worldwide ICCA rankings as a destination for international congresses. The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) published its 2011 congress statistics almost simultaneously with a ceremony held at City Hall by the City of Vienna to honor Vienna's 2011 congress organizers. Vienna almost seems to have taken out a permanent lease on first place as a destination for international congresses. According to the ICCA statistics, the Austrian capital staged 181 such events in 2011, putting it at the top of the worldwide league for the seventh time in a row, followed by Berlin and Singapore. Austria was in 10th place in the countries ranking, headed - also almost by tradition - by the U.S.
