Portugal in top ten ICCA’s ranking
Portugal is now the 10th. most requested country for international congresses in the world, according to the ranking recently delivered by ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association). The country has rised one position, comparing to last year’s performance. In the European ranking, Portugal maintains the 7th. place.
The Portuguese capital, Lisbon, has had an astonishing rise and stands now in the second place, in European and World’s rankings – Paris remains on top of both rankings, as in the previous years.
Also relevant was Cascais’ performance: 77th. place in the European and 150th place in the World’s ranking, rising 15 and 30 positions respectively.
The attraction and support of international congresses is a priority embraced by the Government, in order to project the country’s image abroad, as well as to reduce seasonality and to create attractiveness in all Portuguese Regions. M&I Portugal and M&I Interior+ have been, in different scales, the main instruments to support financially corporate and associative events.
