London and the UK finally made their move up the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) rankings city and country table, respectively, with the association releasing its new statistics last month for 2010.
The eagerly awaited ICCA 2010 rankings, based on qualifying association conferences that rotate around the world, put the UK in fourth place with 399 meetings that met the criteria.
The UK logged 54 more meetings than a year ago.
London moved up two places to 14th and is targeting the top 10 within five years now that it has the new Excel London ICC facility on stream.
“London has risen to the challenge of attracting major conferences and we are starting to see the fruits of our labour,” ICC Director James Rees told CN.
