Association Meetings Up, Attendees Down
JUNE 22, 2017
There were more international association meetings than ever last year, but on average the meetings had fewer participants, reports the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA). The ICCA did not speculate on the reasons behind these two opposing trendlines in its annual report on international association meetings. Over the same time period, the number of meetings per year has doubled, from just under 6,000 to more than 12,000 in 2016.
