BestCities Global Forum 2022

8- 11 December, Vancouver, Canada

About the BestCities Global Forum 

The BestCities Global Alliance is gathering industry thought-leaders, international associations and partner destinations under one roof in Vancouver, Canada.

The Global Forum promises an opportunity for delegates to learn about measuring the impact of business events and drawing insight from projects delivered on the ground in Vancouver.

As we transition back to in-person gatherings, these learning and knowledge-sharing experiences will be immersive, providing delegates with fresh perspectives and ideas in an open and informal atmosphere.

We harness the power of collaboration and community to create positive impact through business events.

Testimonials Global Forum 2021 

'BestCities Global Forum is a fantastic opportunity to take a deeper dive into subject matter that affects associates and destinations alike. It allows for candid discussion as well an opportunity to look at issues from a new perspective or two.  A truly inspirational event!' 

Belinda Hanson, Senior Manager, Operations & Programs, International Society for Computational Biology

'Through the talks and interactions with peers and cities, the BestCities Global Forum pointed me to some challenges we are facing within our Union but also presented new opportunities we have when selecting a venue for future events to create a legacy.' 

Prof Peter van Daele, Secretary General, International Union of Radio Science

'The forum was a good opportunity to connect with a subset of international destinations and have a meaningful, deeper dive into forming effective partnerships.  Our mutual, yet different goals around legacy will allow us to do more than just have a meetings, regardless of what industry or topic we focus on.' 

Pragathi Tummala, Executive Director & CEO, International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect
