Resonance Consultancy has released its annual list of the world’s best cities and Vancouver came in 41st. The Resonance Best Cities rankings quantify and benchmark the relative quality of place, reputation and competitive identity for the world’s principal cities with metropolitan populations of one million or more. The company then analyzes key statistics as well as user-generated reviews and online activity in channels such as Google, Facebook and Instagram in order to rank 100 across the globe.
Resonance notes that it took a more holistic approach by using a wide range of factors that show positive correlations with attracting employment, investment and/or visitors. These factors ranged from the number of culinary experiences, museums, and sights and landmarks each city offers, to the number of Global 500 corporations, direct flight connections and mentions each city has on Instagram.
Overall, 22 factors were analyzed to determine the ranking.
