GR: A Remarkable Combination of Party, Health and Politics


GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre carries out all types of business events on a turnkey basis. The events that they can organise and/or host span from congresses, seminars, various workshops, to concerts and other entertainment and cultural events.

The diversity of the events that can be held in GR particularly shined out during the past days when GR hosted three events with completely different background: entertainment, health and, believe it or not, politics.

The 7th edition of a very popular PopUp Clubbing event bares its name after the German word for »short circuit in electricity«. And not surprisingly so, for the pup up festival is nothing but an event that brings the electrifying night life experience and hosts iconic artists from various music genres. In each of its edition, the festival pop ups at a different venue and is always sold-out long in advance. Its concept attracts thousands of lovers of a unique night life experience, and exclusive, unrepeatable party that lasts all night long.

On 31 May 2018 at 9pm, the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre’s (GR) hall Kocka hosted Editors – the famous English rock band which has been in the musical indie rock scene for more than a decade. In GR they will present their new album Violence. In addition to the classics such as Munich, Blood, and Papillon, they  presented the new singles Magazine and Hallelujah (So Low) as well.

Parliamentary elections (by proportional method) were held in Slovenia on 3 June 2018. GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre will in its Marmorna Hall host the main Slovenian Media Center during the election day from 12pm until 10pm. The Media Center is intended for media representatives that inform publics on all the important activities and events during the ongoing elections.

With all three events covering completely different landscapes, the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre covered the diverse content with grace and in one go appropriate for the largest and the central multifunctional events centre in the heart of the Slovenian capital.
