ICCA*, the reference organisation in the area of professional meetings, disclosed, in May 2016, its annual ranking of host destinations for international events.
This report reveals that Nice improved its standing by rising to 70th position worldwide in front of Abu Dhabi and San Francisco, after being ranked 83rd in 2014 and 94th in 2013. At European level, Nice is 38th this year compared to 47th in 2014 and 52nd in 2013. Finally, in the French market, Nice is in 2nd place after Paris and ahead of Lyon-St-Étienne, Bordeaux and Marseille.
France is among the top 5 countries, after the USA, Germany, the UK and Spain with 522 events organised in compliance with ICCA criteria: regularly scheduled congresses for associations with a rotation in at least 3 different countries.
These excellent results reward the commitment of professionals in this sector in Nice.
