ICCA reports Hyderabad’s MICE rankings across the globe

According to a report published by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Hyderabad ranked 193 in 2017 as against a ranking of 239 in 2016 and jumped 46 ranks across the world in just a year, by upping its game in hosting international MICE last year.

India ranks 24 in hosting events across countries. Last year, Hyderabad hosted more than 100 conferences and exhibitions at Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) and HITEX (Hyderabad International Trade Exposition Limited) together, the biggest being the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES).

ICCA is a global community and knowledge hub for the international association meetings industry comprising of 1,100 member companies and organisations in almost 100 countries worldwide.

“Hyderabad’s ranking within the country has remained at four, within Asia-Pacific it has jumped up. Hyderabad climbed up the ladder because the government has been very proactive in getting conferences to the city. The overall infrastructure of the city is pretty convenient to bring a conference here,” said Gorav Arora, Resident Manager, Novotel and HICC.
