The last edition brought to Ljubljana the highest number of international meetings planners and meeting providers in the history of the show with a reason. It offered a different, new, friendlier and more personalized experience than most of the B2B shows.
Also in 2016, Conventa will continue to pamper its hosted buyers and give them the opportunity to meet with around 140 meeting providers from New Europe to get to know new destinations, explore new possibilities of cooperation and experience true hospitality.
The carefully prepared hosted buyer programme will cover transfer and accommodation, personal itinerary of appointments and fam trips to great meetings destinations. Once more Conventa will be the hub of networking, social matchmaking and education.
Since its beginnings the show has hosted 1.716 hosted buyers from 45 countries. Almost 90 percent of hosted buyers that attended Conventa 2015 said their par¬ticipation absolutely met their expectations. Find out also what they have said about their experience:
