UIA 2020 data on International Association HQs

The latest annual snapshot from the Union of International Associations on where international associations locate their HQs and regional offices has once again shown Brussels, Dubai, Singapore and Washington DC to be at the very top of their regional rankings, with each increasing their market share compared to 2019.  For the first time, the four cities collectively are now hosting over 10% of all such offices worldwide, 3,898 offices (4.2% increase on 2019) out of a total of 38,824 (1.9% increase on 2019).

As more and more associations recognise the importance of having “boots on the ground” to serve their worldwide members, and to extend their global influence in the such fields as certification, lifelong learning and professional standards, we look forward to even more growth in future years.
