The world’s most cultural cities for business meetings and events
At a time when the world has shifted to a more flexible, remote-working approach, employees and employers alike rely on in-person meetings to create real and genuine human connections within the workplace.
Company culture is also created when having shared experiences with colleagues, like when exploring a new city and deepening your appreciation and understanding of the world, together.
With this in mind, the team at IBTM have crunched the numbers and found out which cities around the world are the ‘most cultural’, helping to narrow down the options for anyone planning an International meeting where culture is at the forefront.
