Since 1960 the UIA has prepared statistics on the international meetings that have taken place worldwide in the preceding year. This work is based on routine research and surveys undertaken by the UIA. Meetings taken into consideration include those organized and/or sponsored by international organizations, i.e. the sittings of their principal organs, congresses, conventions, symposia, regional sessions grouping several countries, as well as some national meetings with international participation organized by national branches of international associations.

The report consists of 163 pages and contains over 50 comprehensive tables showing trends in international organizations' events. Highlights include:

  • Number of meetings per city and per country, with indications of their market share
  • Top international meeting countries and cities per year
  • Trends in participant numbers and meeting dates
  • Top 10 ranking
