Jordan Ranks Second in the Middle East according to ICCA

THE RESULTS ARE IN. Jordan is officially the second highest ranking country in the Middle East after the United Arab Emirates for the number of meetings held in 2018, according to the ICCA statistic.

Ever since the Jordan Tourism Board established the Convention Bureau as a separate division in 2017, it has operated with the mission to attract, facilitate and support international MICE organizers plan their next successful event. The bureau represents the destination as a whole and leads the process of attracting international conventions and events to the country.

According to recently published International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) rankings for 2018, Jordan rankedsecond in the Middle East after the United Arab Emirates for hosting 22 international association meetings, with a percentage increase of over 100%.The bureau has worked with countless associations producing bids, providing event support, and subventions, establishing solid partnerships and connections, pushing the MICE industry forward and onward.  These efforts have paid off tremendously with this new positioning.

Additionally, Jordan ranked fourth amongst countries in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region, for the total number of international association meetings held in 2018. As for Amman, the city that started with a modest 3 international conferences in 2014 has seen the fastestgrowth amongst all cities in the MENA region, hosting a total of 19 conferences in 2018.

“Jordan’s presence as a strong MICE destination is growing and developing and the ICCA rankings only reinforce this fact. This is merely a stepping stone for further progress and achievements, ” says Dr. Abed Al Razzaq Arabiyat, Managing Director/Jordan Tourism Board.
