The Top Most Desirable Destinations for Future AIS Conferences

Tuesday, April 29, 2014  

Last month, AIS issued a survey to its members in order to learn more about some of the destinations that appeal to them for future conferences.  We had a large tally of respondents who not only let us know where they would like to go for AMCIS and ICIS, but also some of the reasons behind their choices.  Many people considered weather, proximity, cost, attractions, curiosity, and more.  We learned a lot about what types of cities attract our members, and we are happy to share the top five choices for both AMCIS and ICIS below:

Based on this survey, the top 5 most desirable destinations for AMCIS are:

#1 – Chicago
#2 – Boston
#3 – New York City
#4 – San Francisco
#5 – Rio de Janeiro

Based on this survey, the top 5 most desirable destinations for ICIS are:

#1 – London
#2 – New York City
#3 – Singapore
#4 – Tokyo
#5 – Paris

Please note that the Site Advisory Committee of the ICIS Executive Committee is now accepting preliminary bids from those who are interested in chairing ICIS 2018, which will be held in Region 1 (Americas).  Conference chairs needn’t be local in order to submit a bid for a particular city, and they should not contact any hotels/venues or visitor bureaus (AIS staff will handle the logistics).  If you are interested in submitting a bid, please review the bid procedures (, and then the bid form (  All preliminary bids are due by June 1, 2014.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the members of the Site Advisory Committee for ICIS 2018:
