Congresses & Annual Meetings

The Metropolis World Congresses (triennial) and annual meetings act as a relevant stage to promote key political messages and declarations from the community of major cities, metropolitan political representatives worldwide and to showcase the diverse good practices coming from the ground of our Metropolis membership; enriching the debate across different levels and stakeholders of urban management.

Our congresses and annual meetings are jointly organized by Metropolis and a rotating host (always a member of the association). Three to four-day events, they offer a large array of sharing platforms: from political plenary sessions to thematic workshops, including on-site study visits and a social program.
