This paper concerns the methodology formation for evaluating the service provider’s potential in the area of congressional services. Congress tourism is an economically effective and a very prestigeous event. That is why advanced countries and world famous cities are interested in the top-class congress tourism. For the city which houses the congress it means not only income to its budget but also new job opportunities. We have tried to quantify the congressional provider’s potential through indexes. We have created the Index of Congressional Service Provider’s Potential ICP.This methodology can also be used in rural development. Keywords:
