As many as 32.9 million international delegates had taken part in the MICE events in this country that is over double the amount ever since the Barometer was launched in the year 2006.

 

The conferences, meetings and seminars in Germany has increased by nearly 5.6% comprising about 57% of all the events organized in the country.

 

The initiators are the German Convention Bureau (GCB), European Association of Event Centres (EVVC) and the German National Tourist Board (GNTO).

 

Petra Hedorfer who is the CEO of GNTO commented that these results of the study reflect their strategy for the German MICE sector that incorporates the excellence of the German cities for the economic sectors that offer the best framework for appropriate thematic events.

 

It has been proved that conferences have been the major driving force behind the 9% of the 12.9 million business trips to Germany that happened in 2016.
