Testimonial

Time and again, BestCities has consistently helped CongressMed deliver successful conferences. At the Breast Cancer Conference YEAR in Melbourne for example, the BestCities network played a crucial practical role, that helped boost delegate numbers from the expected 340 to over 700.

BestCities membership guarantees that the destination has the infrastructure, the exceptional service, insider knowledge and full support of the host city’s convention bureau. Even if I am unfamiliar with the business tourism offering in South America, for example, as a member of BestCities Global Alliance, I know Bogotá will deliver. BestCities is a quality assurance.

I want to work with BestCities as I want to work with the best cities in the world.

Testimonial

I first worked with BestCities when we hosted our 2014 conference in Berlin and the value of that relationship lives on. Today, I’m considering one or two BestCities’ destinations for future events and the internal, transparent knowledge sharing between its members has been incredibly refreshing. A huge amount of relevant information can be efficiently passed directly from Berlin to the other members, which is a huge benefit to me.

BestCities connects associations together, we get the chance to interact and share best practice. Being able to learn directly from my counterparts from very different sectors and also give something back, is a fantastic and truly beneficial opportunity.

While BestCities promotes its excellent member cities and their venues, crucially they are an invaluable source for associations to gain learnings and insights from each other. BestCities foster these inter-association connections. That’s an incredibly important thing.
