The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) published a snapshot from its upcoming report on the country and city rankings 2010. “The ICCA rankings cover meetings organised by international associations which take place on a regular basis and which rotate between a minimum of three countries.”
In 2010, in terms of number of international meetings organised, Istanbul is ranked seventh among the world’s cities with 109 meetings. It jumped into the 7th position from 17th previous year. This position reflects Istanbul’s position as being the seventh mostly visited city in the world. Yes, the city definitely is becoming global!
