The annual Meetings Star Awards to be held live at Conventa 2023

As tradition dictates, the annual Meetings Star award ceremony will be held as part of the Conventa Experience, the longest-running B2B MICE event in the region.

Since its inception, the Meetings Star Award has become a recognised accolade by event organisers and the industry. Destinations are evaluated based on the Meeting Experience Index, comprising 75 evaluation criteria, while the evaluation of hotels and venues is based on the hidden congress guest’s visit, whose assessment comprises 654 evaluation criteria. In addition, the Meetings Star will award the most influential individuals of the regional meetings industry.

The gala award ceremony will take place on WEDNESDAY, 1 February 2023, at 18:30 in Cankarjev Dom, Cultural And Congress Centre, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We are proud that our evaluation system has become a reference point and sort of Michelin Guide within the meetings industry. This year, we evaluated 125 destinations, including every central meeting destination in New Europe. The systematic, structured and analytical process encompasses numerous indices that meeting planners consider crucial. We evaluate all destinations on the basis of fieldwork and thorough research of individual criteria. The assessment thus reflects an up-to-date situation. Moreover, we strive for actuality, transparency, and objectivity.” said Gorazd Čad, Editor in Chief of Kongres Magazine
