According to the 2014 International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) rankings, released last month, the city was placed 101 among the world’s top conference destinations, up from a ranking of 136 in 2013.
Executive Mayor, Cllr Parks Tau said: "We’re thrilled to learn about the improved ICCA rankings for our city as this is yet another demonstration that Johannesburg is a city at work. Events play an important role in bringing tourists into our city, at the same time contributing to the building of our brand internationally and changing negative perceptions about our destination."
ICCA rankings are announced annually, based on the number of rotating international association meetings hosted in a particular destination.
