Ljubljana congress highlights in the recent years

  • We have been a strategic partner of the Conventa trade show since its very beginnings in 2007. The Conventa is a B2B event held annually, where service providers from New Europe meet and present themselves to selected hosted buyers from Europe and beyond. The Conventa is well known for its hospitality, boutiqueness, dynamic social programme and clients of high quality. Additionally, it has set a very good example as regards the organization of »green meetings«; recycled materials used in different ways and locally produced food served throughout the event are just a few of the steps, which have contributed to Conventa becoming a highly successful business event with a great reputation in the region.
