This spring, Aarhus, Denmark's second largest city, entered the top 100 on the brand new World Ranking city list 2013 from ICCA - the International Congress & Convention Association.
- It's great news that Aarhus has moved into ICCA's prestigious top 100 city list. Aarhus is a destination with strong international ambitions, and we have invested heavily in this particular segment in recent years. The ranking is a welcome approval of our commitment to attract more international congresses and conferences to Aarhus in central Jutland and shows that our efforts have already begun to bear fruit, says Jacob Bundgaard, City Mayor of Aarhus.
- Thanks to strong political support and a focused effort, we expect to continue the positive development and to strengthen our position as an attractive congress and conference destination even further in the years to come. Our aim is to place Aarhus in the top 75 most popular congress cities worldwide and to be among the top 50 most popular destinations in Europe in terms of attracting international conferences by 2020,' says Peer H. Kristensen, Managing Director of VisitAarhus Convention.
ICCA’s International Association Meetings Tables are published every year. To be included, meetings must be held on a regular basis, have at least 50 delegates, and rotate between at least three countries.
