Tytuł:  burgomaster vs mayor

Hello!
Can anyone, explain the difference between mayor and burgomaster to me, please?
sentence taken from the website: Organised once a year, this conference brings together the 147 Mayors and Burgomasters from..and so on....
Thanks!

Personally, I have never seen these two words used like this. Burgomaster is pretty much the same as mayor. Burgomaster is restricted to Germanic countries, though. Mayor is more Anglo-Saxon, but widely used other places. You will not encounter burgomaster a lot. So I'm not sure why these two words were used not interchangeably... Sorry, not much help here!
