Q: How did you get into the meetings industry?
Fifteen years ago, when I was working for the largest tour operator in the country, the M&IT department head invited me to join the team and I have not left the industry since then, despite a few years after that changing to the convention hotel and eight years ago to the national convention bureau. It’s a challenging but rewarding experience contributing to the development of the industry.
Q: What is the most positive thing about Conventa?
It is difficult, or almost impossible, to name the most positive one, as there are so many and they are all connected to each other. Conventa is also a development project, so things are changing every year. One of them is definitely positioning Slovenia and South East Europe on the international meetings map. The next one could be uniting the meetings industry of the region and developing its product and its potential, but also demonstrating its value and contribution to national economies.
Q: Career high?
I am in the middle of my professional career. The first half has been great, so I am looking forward for the second half.
