Destination Competitive Index 2019

GainingEdge has released its second annual Competitive Index of international convention destinations.  The 2019 edition extends the listing to the world’s top 103 cities – those which have hosted 82 or more international conventions over the past three years as reported by the International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA). 

This year’s report includes discussion and findings about two powerful benchmarking approaches, “fair share” analysis of a destination’s business levels and “ratio analysis” meant to help destinations focus in on their most important competitive issues based on which cities they are actually competing with.
