ASK A COLLEAGUE. HELP A FRIEND.
In light of the current geopolitical situation and in line with Conventa’s core mission of connecting event professionals, we are bringing you a special online event. This Conventa Trend Bar will serve as an opportunity for sharing first-hand information about the situation in Ukraine. As an important regional MICE platform, we feel it is Conventa’s responsibility to give people a voice and find ways to help in times of uncertainty. This will not be a destination presentation, nor a promotional campaign, but rather a much-needed open debate.
The meetings industry, like other creative industries, carries great social power and responsibility. Events are not only and exclusively an economic impact generator, creating revenue, stimulating investment, and opening up new job opportunities. They also foster the development of new technologies and science, connect international leaders with local experts and promote the development of local companies and professionals.
Join us on Friday, 4 March 2022 at 10:00 (CET), when Gorazd Čad, Co-founder of Conventa, will talk to Sofiya Kayinska, Acting Director at Lviv Convention Bureau.
Together they will open a discussion on the current situation and the impacts the conflict could have on the meetings industry. Sofiya will also share real ways you can help Ukraine.
What is Conventa Trend Bar?
The Conventa Trend Bar project has become an important support pillar of the Conventa brand. It is a knowledge roadshow that has been traveling across cities of New Europe for the past 4 years. Each Trend Bar is hosted by a different destination, providing its own special flair, hospitality, and speakers. This means that no two Trend Bars are the same. They have been hosted by over 20 different destinations. The goal of the event is to connect creative, open-minded individuals, share knowledge and help form new friendships. Because of the current epidemiological situation, we were forced to move the sharing of knowledge and networking into an online space.
