Prague Rises in the International Congress Rankings

In the beginning of May, ICCA announced its first results of the congress tourism statistics for 2011. In ICCA’s world congress destination ranking, Prague achieved a significantly better position than in 2010 – it ranked 14th best congress destination in the world.

Due to a significant increase in the number of international association congresses held in Prague, the city made it to the Top 15 from the 19th place in 2010, sharing the 14th position with another successful European destination Copenhagen, both with the total number of 98 events; the previous year there were 85 association meetings held in Prague.  The Czech Republic ranked 31st worldwide with 122 events in 2011.

"The results of the ICCA statistics for last year really thrilled us. We were expecting some improvement in Prague's position, but it was a pleasant surprise for us that the city made such a great shift in the ICCA’s ranking. We see the better position of Prague as a reward for our hard work over the past two years. The city’s success is also partly the result of an excellent cooperation with the members of the Prague Convention Bureau throughout the year, who were actively involved in the collection of statistical data on Prague congress industry, which was initiated by the Prague Convention Bureau in the beginning of 2011. I believe that with their help we will more easily reach the goals that Prague Convention Bureau set for the following years," said the director of Prague Convention Bureau Lenka Žlebková.
