CONVENTA’S COVID SAFETY NET
In line with current epidemiological restrictions, the organisers of Conventa have published a protocol for responsible event realisation in 2022. It will act as a safety net, limiting cancellations and ensuring the event takes place regardless of the situation. Conventa Trade Show, the annual exhibition for meetings, events & incentive travel is moving forward in one of the forms listed in the protocol.
“We have made a promise to connect the regional meetings industry even in times when we all have to conform to new circumstances and adapt our way of life and business. Conventa is brave, persistent and pledged to its mission. We still firmly believe in the power of live events, unfortunately, the current situation has forced us to find alternative solutions. We have already proven that events can be safely and successfully carried out in the midst of an epidemic with the first hybrid Conventa Trade Show and the Conventa Crossover conference, which took place as part of Conventa Week in the last week of August 2021.” said Conventa Exhibition Manager, Natalija Bah Čad
The organisers of Conventa Trade Show, Toleranca Marketing have received the “Safe & Healthy Meetings” certification from the Slovenian Convention Bureau, ensuring health and safety of attendees and supporting staff will be taken care of, regardless of the format.
PLAN A: Conventa Hybrid in February
Date: 23 – 24 February 2022
A hybrid event format means that the organisers will allow hosted buyers and exhibitors who, due to the deterioration of the Covid-19 situation in their countries, would not really be able to come to Slovenia, to have video meetings online. Most of the participants would attend the event in person.
In the event that the health situation related to Covid-19 deteriorates further in most European countries in the coming weeks and travel-related measures become more severe, the organisers will take a decision on 10 January 2022 to proceed with
Plan B: Conventa Hybrid in August
Date: 24 – 25 August 2022
Conventa Trade Show will be carried out together with the Conventa Crossover conference, as we have seen this year at Conventa Week. The synergy has proven to be logical and has created a lot of added value.
ADDITIONALLY: Online edition of the Meetings Star Award
Date: 23 February 2022
If the event is rescheduled to August, the original date (23 February 2022) will serve as an opportunity to carry out an online edition of the Meetings Star Award ceremony, which has been a tradition of Conventa for the past 13 years.
A PEOPLE2PEOPLE EVENT SINCE 2007
“We believe that authentic human connections are irreplaceable. Awakening all five human senses through an unforgettable experience is etched deeply into Conventa’s DNA. After all, Conventa is a PEOPLE2PEOPLE event at its core.” said Gorazd Čad, Co-founder of Conventa
With that said, events will have to adapt to the new pandemic reality and not the other way around. Conventa 2022 will provide flexibility for everyone, who won’t be able to travel to Slovenia due to new restrictions through a new matchmaking platform.
