European Cities Marketing is a non-profit organisation improving the competitiveness
and performance of the leading cities of Europe. ECM provides a platform
for convention, leisure and city marketing professionals to exchange knowledge,
best practice and widen their network to build new business.

ECM members enjoy a new series of knowledge sharing, of best and next practice, of recovery planning and of celebrating the ECM community heroes. It’s about how we can use ECM community to build collaborative advantage by sharing, learning, meeting – and through that growing both as a community and as individual destinations and destination leaders.
#PowerOfCommunity is for ECM members and by ECM members and we fully leverage the power of this community together. All information is on ECM Intranet.
