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 travelling 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.

What will I learn?

After an insightful destination presentation by a local host, Gorazd Čad, Co-founder of Conventa, will be joined by Jaka Gornik, CEO of Confiva to talk about how we can start organising events that future generations will be proud of. You will learn how to create exceptional 365/24 experiences, transform your story into an event, and cut no corners when it comes to content while keeping sustainability at the forefront.

What is the new season bringing?

New topics, new destinations and new connections. The autumn season of Conventa Trend Bar will be all about making the meetings industry better. Together we will define a new role for the meetings industry after the coronavirus crisis. We will talk about new ideas and perspectives on what events of the future will look like. The aim of upcoming Trend Bars is to encourage key stakeholders to develop new business models and to change how they do business.

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. Let’s make events smarter, greener, and more responsible.
