Macau ranked 72nd in the latest Annual Statistics and Rankings by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) 2016, jumping 21 places compared to 2015, when the city first reached the global top hundred, according to a release by the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) yesterday.
The new position puts Macau above places such as Brisbane (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand), Busan and Jeju (South Korea).
The city has also reached 17th position in the ICCA ranking for Asia Pacific 2016, up four places from a year earlier.
In addition, the association recognises 37 international meetings held in Macau last year, representing an increase of nine events from the 28 of 2015, while signalling the highest number of international meetings taking place in the city in a decade.
IPIM observed that Macau ‘is moving further towards the development of the MICE industry, with the strategy [of] “Priority to Convention”.’
IPIM officially became an ICCA member in August 2012.
Currently, there are a total of seven ICCA members from government departments, hotels, professional conference organisers and conference service providers in the city.
ICCA was founded in 1963 and has a membership of more than 1,000 governmental organisations, exhibition related companies and convention centres based in more than a hundred countries.
