09 May, 2017
There was some fantastic news for Cork as a destination which scored very well in the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) 2016 Country and Destination Congress Destination rankings.
Cork Convention Bureau, through Meet In Ireland, supplied ICCA with information about conferences that took place in Cork and met the criteria of a minimum of 50 International delegates, International or European Conferences and rotating between at least 3 countries.
In the 2015 rankings we were placed 335th worldwide and in 2016 we’ve moved to 186th place a jump of 149 places, while in the European rankings we moved from 167th place to 98th a jump here of 69 places.
This is based on the number of approved conferences per destination. This year we’re sharing spots with cities such as Houston, Johannesburg, Leeds and Belfast which is very impressive for somewhere the size of Cork.
