Barcelona is the world’s 1st city with most conference participants

Barcelona, the vibrant capital of Catalonia, has once again claimed the top spot in the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) rankings, solidifying its position as the world’s premier destination for conference attendees. According to ICCA, the Catalan capital also ranks 4th globally in the list of best cities based on the number of congresses hosted, behind only Vienna, Lisbon, and Paris.

Barcelona’s reign as a global congress destination spans over two decades, with 2022 marking another triumphant year for the city. The catalytic growth of the city’s conference industry is evident in its consistent first-place position in the delegate count for the period from 2013 to 2022.

Barcelona’s consistent domination of the ICCA rankings stands as a testament to the city’s unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in the MICE industry. As the industry continues to evolve, Barcelona remains an unbeatable choice for event organizers and attendees seeking an extraordinary and enriching experience.

The ICCA 2022 ranking also includes five other Catalan cities: Girona, Lleida, Tarragona, Lloret de Mar, and Banyoles. The inclusion of these cities underscores the diversity and richness of the congress landscape in the region, providing organizers and attendees with a wide range of options to find the perfect destination that suits their needs and preferences.
