London ranks among the leading cities in the world for accommodation, transport, restaurants and attractions. The jump to number six in the ICCA rankings coupled with the Olympic effect has helped increase London's appeal as a leading events destination and we are seeing the effects of this not just in 2013 but for future years as well."
