In the full conference calendar, there are many international and national conventions, which have their permanent address in this town. Each year they are joined by the new ones.
The conference calendar of Opatija is exceptionally filled so it is not easy to single out individual conventions.
However, since Opatija is a town with a long tradition and glorious present in health tourism, we have to mention a convention dedicated to health. The IMTJ Medical Travel Summit, an international conference on health tourism took place in April 2017. By choosing Opatija as the venue, the participants from all over the world honoured the tradition of health tourism in Opatija, the Kvarner region and entire Croatia.
More traditional conferences will take place in Opatija by the end of the year, including the 25th traditional annual conference ‘Economic Policy of Croatia’; the Croatian Insurance Days conference; the 9th International Congress ‘Flour-Bread ’17” and the 11th Croatian Congress of Cereal Technologists’; then the ENDA (European Nurse Directors Association) 13th Nursing Congress and others. From a long list of already booked conferences for the next year, we can mention Eurochild – a conference of the network of organisations and individuals working to promote the rights and well-being of children and young people; then the Croatian Congress on Obesity where the new medication for obesity will be promoted; the International Conference on Advances in Diabetes and Insulin Therapy, etc. Also, at the beginning of June 2018, Summer Sensual Days will take place in Opatija, as an extension of the programme traditionally held in Rovinj.
