About Ljubljana Tourism / Convention Bureau
The Ljubljana Tourism / Convention Bureau is the prime source of neutral and qualified information on meetings facilities and services in the greater Ljubljana area.
Our mission is to provide professional and objective information
Its main task is the related international promotion and marketing of the Slovenian capital, including the support to bids for international congresses. With an extensive knowledge on the meetings propositions, as well as the general tourist offer of the city, it provides professional and objective information on the destination and the key partners - its service providers.
Our support is free of charge
The Ljubljana Tourism / Convention Bureau aims at being a valuable local adviser with many insiders’ tips, representing a shortcut to prospective meeting planners in finding the best solution or local partner for staging an event in Ljubljana. It does not operate on a membership basis and its support is free of charge. It works in close synergy with the Slovenian Convention Bureau in all key marketing and business development projects.
Ljubljana Tourism was a founding member of the Slovenian Convention Bureau and remains its important partner in creating synergies as well as maximising joint marketing and product development projects.
The marketing is focused on attracting association meetings, corporate events and incentives to Ljubljana. Attendance at major industry trade shows and events, media relations, market research, familiarisation trips and partnership in organising events that showcase Slovenia and Ljubljana as a meetings destination are a part of the regular agenda.
Bidding for international congresses is easier with our help
A standardised bid book for the destination is available and the coordination of site inspection visits is secured in the destination selection process. Support to the congress pre-marketing with promotional and A/V materials is also provided. The key providers in the destination have joined forces in the Ljubljana strategic bidding team. This aims at increasing Ljubljana’s competativness on the interna- tional association market with a focus on events with over 500 delegates. A standardised support scheme has been developed in mid 2012.
Our support at your events
Promotional material for delegate packages is free of charge. For international congresses with more than 500 delegates, Ljubljana Tourism / CB can offer an on-site staffed tourist information desk and also assist as a liason to the civic authorities.
