A successful year 2016 in the darmstadtium – with improved ICCA ranking for Darmstadt


Darmstadt, May 2017 – The Congress Centre Darmstadt had a successful year in 2016, with the highest turnover along with a low energy use as well as increasing numbers of events and visitors. Darmstadt’s placement in the ICCA ranking also showed a positive development.

The darmstadtium was able to hold its ground once more in a demanding market environment in 2016 – and it began just as successfully in 2017, with its best first quarter to date and monthly peak values. This success was also confirmed in the latest ranking of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), that presents the yearly number of international association meetings by state and by country.

Darmstadt was able to take a further leap ahead in the ICCA ranking, both Europe-wide and worldwide, and is neck and neck with congress destinations such as Bonn and Hannover. This City of Science has a stable place in the top 20 of the destinations with the most association meetings throughout Germany and was able to move up another step since 2015.

In the ranking, Germany has once more ensured itself first place in Europe and second place worldwide.
