Montreal kept its place at the top of North America's list of cities hosting international meetings last year, attracting 129 meetings, just short of the total for #2 New York and #3 Washington combined. Here are the rankings:
The figures come from the International Meetings Statistics Report published by the Union of International Associations, which tracks information on 465,000+ events organized in almost 11,500 cities by more than 25,000 international organizations. All told, the group has a database of over 70,000 organizations in 300 countries.
It's Montreal's third year in a row as North America's top city, and even though most events are canceled for this year, Tourisme Montreal and the Palais des Congres have been working hard at promoting the city as associations start planning for post-Covid events.
