ICCA Ranking Data Collection 2019


Dear SAACI Members

It is that time of the year again when the global business events industry submits their data to the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) for the 2019 City and Country Rankings. 

The ICCA rankings are the most comprehensive global benchmark of the international association meetings sector, providing a unique overview which encompasses – and simultaneously celebrates – the global growth of association meetings, a sector which is only set to soar in strength, influence and progress.

In collaboration with the South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB), SAACI are calling on and encouraging our members who hosted or organised qualifying ICCA meetings during 2019 to submit their data for the 2019 ranking report.

If your meeting adheres to our criteria

  • it rotated between at least 3 countries,
  • occurs regularly, and
  • attracted a minimum of 50 participants the meeting will qualify for the rankings.

The South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB) will be in contact with SAACI members to collect that data or alternatively, members can submit details of their qualifying meeting/s to

Onalenna Mangope on email: onalennama@southafrica.net or

contact him on 011 895 3000 if you need any further information.


All information will be kept strictly confidential.

We appreciate your ongoing support to enables us to continue reporting on our industry’s economic contribution and further highlight the immense role business events play in the South African economy.
