The 2011 International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) rankings have been released, and Tallinn is among one of the biggest climbers moving from 65th place in 2010 to 43rd in worldwide rankings, leaving behind big cities like New York, Moscow, and Frankfurt am Main, the Tallinn's Tourism Board said in a report.

Compared with other Baltic Cities, Tallinn is ahead of Riga (79th place) and Vilnius (65th place), writes LETA.


The city hosted 49 ICCA conferences in 2011 compared to 28 in 2010. In the European rankings Tallinn is 25th and Estonia is 23rd, respectively.


The 2011 ICCA country rankings show that the number of association meetings taking place in Puerto Rico have increased from 9 meetings in 2010 to 30 in 2011.


For the first time ever, more than 10,000 regularly occurring association events which rotate between at least three countries were identified by ICCA members and ICCA’s in-house research team as having taken place during 2011, over 800 more than identified a year previously.


The far above average increase in the number of international association meetings taking place in Puerto Rico results in a jump in the worldwide rankings measured by number of international association meetings per country from 77th place in 2010 to 56th in 2011, and in the regional North- and Latin American rankings from 18th to 12th position.
