Why Conventa

Best value for time and money


Saving time and money

In only two days you have a chance to meet around 170 international and more than 100 regional and Slovene buyers, all in one place. What will impress your financial department most is that at Conventa you pay for a lead only one-tenth of the price you pay at other trade shows.

Meeting cherry-picked buyers

Around 90 % of meeting planners are new to the show each year and they all have to meet the strict organizer’s criteria in order to gain the hosted buyer status.

Networking every step of the way

Conventa is the only trade show that organizes joint social events making sure exhibitors and hosted buyers can continue networking even after the trade show hours.

What Hosted Buyers Say

“The culinary art, high quality organization and well-prepared fam trip activities left a delightful and surprising impression to me. Slovenia really surprised me in many aspects, it was a great pleasure to know the country and friendly people,

“Conventa show is professionally organized in a relaxed atmosphere. It provides useful connections as well as overall picture of the destination.”

“This type of event is perfect for me (compared to IMEX and IBTM) where there is a focus on the region and the knowledge gained is much better than at a bigger more general show.

“This was my first Conventa and I am absolutely satisfied, both with the organization and the people. Everybody was nice and really welcoming in Slovenia. The social programs, food and drinks just made it easier to meet new people and make business connections for the future.


Hospitality is etched deeply into Conventa DNA. SEEING IS BELIEVING!

What Exhibitors Say

Conventa was one of the best Trade Fair formats I ever attended and also seems more value than any other trade fair I attended till yet. For sure we will come again next year – this is already fixed

Have a great 2017 and see you again in 2018.

The Tourism organisation of Budva is very pleased to gain the opportunity to present the region of Budva municipality as an attractive and interesting destination for congresses, meetings and incentive trips organisers.

Conventa, as the leading business-to-business event in the area, is a valuable opportunity for every business tourism ori- ented company from the region. We are glad that Conventa supports and gathers industry professionals at an event that is building tradition,

Carnet de Voyage tailor made Croatia is very proud to be selected as Conventa wild card winner for 2015. Although Carnet de Voyage is a new brand on the market, we appreciate that Conventa team recognized our potential and fresh approach to our clients.






Our team has been working around the clock for the whole year to ensure that the event brings the socializing, high spirits and everything else that carries a positive sign and marks the beginning and hopefully also of new and promising business relationships.


We are a Slavic nation. Hospitality is etched deeply into our DNA and the social life is an important part of our everyday lives. It means we do business whilst we’re enjoying food or drinking a glass of wine.
Try it – you’ll love it.
