The second most popular venue is the conference centre, although usage has decreased over the decade from 37.4 per cent to 26.3 per cent.SubjectsThe order of the top 10 most popular conference subjects has remained stable, with medical science the most popular by far. Technology and science were the second and third favourites, respectively. Registration fees and expenditureOver the first half of the decade the average registration fee per delegate per meeting increased until 2005, when meetings became shorter and less expensive. Ever since, fees have been increasing, bar a blip in 2009, reaching an average of US$584 per delegate per meeting in 2010, the highest average registration fee over the period under review.Average total expenditure of all meetings in the ICCA Association Database shows an ongoing increase over the past 10 years, with the exception of 2005 and 2009 (mostly due to the low numbers of participants per meeting in these years). Meetings spend in 2010 of US$13.8bn was the second highest (after 2008). With an absolute increase in registration fees and expenditure per delegate per meeting, while meetings are getting shorter, the average registration fee and total expenditure per delegate per day are increasing relatively as well as absolutely.The figures relate only to personal expenditures of the delegate and do not include additional investments from the organiser, neither secondary economical effects for the destination.There has been a fluctuating trend in average income from registration fees and average total delegate spend. The lowest rates were recorded in 2005 and the highest in 2004 and 2008. In 2010 the level stood at US$333,617 in terms of the average income from fees per meeting and US$1,516,442 in terms of the average total expenditure per meeting.
