Ljubljana and Central Slovenia are well known for their traditional hospitality and rich diversity of culinary offerings, including good organic food. Rich and diverse is also the choice of international cuisine. Ljubljana’s character is somewhat shaped by the city’s proximity to the Mediterranean and the Balkans, whose cuisines, often fused with classic Slovenian fare, are very popular.

Ljubljana provides a good range of accommodation facilities of all categories and types, currently totalling around 2,500 hotel rooms (4-star and 3-star hotels). Several hotels are centrally located and are either within walking distance or up to 3 km from the Old Town. Conventa organiser will book hotel accommodation for hosted buyers in official Conventa hotels in Ljubljana.

The organiser will provide for local transfers within the Conventa programme. Transfer will be running to and from the venue (GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre) to all official hotels. Transfers to and from the official evening events are also organized from all official hotels.

Ljubljana is one of the safest cities in the world. Ljubljana is classified as a mid-sized European city, but has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere while providing all the facilities of a modern capital. It is city dotted with pleasant picturesque places.
