Conventa Experience

Connecting meeting planners for 14 years in a row

Conventa is one of the longest-running B2B MICE events in the region. Throughout the course of over a decade, Conventa has outgrown the framework of a classic business tradeshow, thus becoming the key meeting point for event organisers in New Europe.

A focal point of New Europe’s meetings industry

Conventa remains the focal point for meeting planners in the region of New Europe, which, in addition to sharing knowledge and experience, emphasises networking and establishing new business contacts. Conventa is the only platform of its kind in the region and only a few events in the world offer such a comprehensive solution.

Who are the exhibitors?

Each year, Conventa exhibitors (convention bureaus, hotels, conference & exhibition centres, DMC’s, special venues,…) come from over 16 different countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria,Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine.

Who are the buyers?

We are known as a tradeshow with the most carefully selected buyers with a direct interest in the region. At the event, you can expect over 250 top-notch buyers, from corporate meetings and incentive planners, associations and event agencies. This year even more attention will be given to bringing regional hosted buyers to Ljubljana.

CONVENTA EXPERIENCE

A true experience with an emphasised heightening of all of the senses awaits you at Conventa.

Conventa remains the focal point for meeting planners in the region of New Europe, which, in addition to sharing knowledge and experience, emphasises networking and establishing new business contacts. Conventa is the only platform of its kind in the region and only a few events in the world offer such a comprehensive solution.

Sight is the most important of the human senses, which often dominates other senses. The first contact with Conventa is through its brand and in its eight years Conventa has become a reputable, trustworthy brand well-known by meeting planners as well as meeting providers.

Exhibition equipment, decoration, furniture, heating, lighting and various elements of the set-up make the atmosphere at Conventa. The cherry on top is the great hospitality that fills the air and that can warm up even the coldest of the meetings industry players’ hearts.

Music stimulates passion, affection, devotion, reassurance and warmth. To hear something you can remain passive, but to listen you have to be active. Sound is important because of its link with memory; music stimulates and awakens memories of our past and at the same time takes us into the future.

Taste is undoubtedly one of the ways in which we can feel love. It is not so unusual then that there is the old saying: “The way to the heart is through the stomach”. This doesn’t just mean to fall in love with someone because they might be a good cook, but it means that with our taste buds we can taste when someone has prepared a dish with genuine love and care.

Even if you close your eyes and cover your ears, you will always smell the air as you breathe. You explore the smells all around you with every breath you take. The Conventa scent is one of new experiences as well as the scent of nostalgia, and most of all the scent of a freshly roasted coffee.

‘Try before you buy’ is part of the Conventa trade show philos- ophy, so yrying out the destination before offering it to clients is what we offer to hosted buyers. Conventa organisers believe in the personal experience of the destination and offer it by ar- ranging fam trips to the great destinations in the region.
