“WE HAVE KNOWN FOR QUITE SOME TIME THAT 2018 WILL BE A STELLAR YEAR FOR LJUBLJANA.”
There are 16 congress events confirmed so far with over 500 delegates, among which 6 will attract more than 1000 participants.
A particularly active year is ahead of the two biggest convention centres in the city, Cankarjev dom – CD Congress Centre and GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. Together they will host over 35 international congresses, with two expecting over 2,000 attendees. Very confident projections come also from the hotel and agency business sectors regarding the growth in the number of corporate events that have been confirmed for the destination, taking place in different convention hotels and special venues.
Important to point out is that these remarkable successes couldn’t have been accomplished without a continuing marketing support from key local actors involved in bidding for large international congresses and the active engagement from various partners working harmoniously toward a common goal – to increase the visibility of Ljubljana and Slovenia as a congress destination. Furthermore, groundbreaking achievements and important roles of Slovenian experts in international associations, the steady development of congress products, growing investments made in the hotel industry and an increasingly attractive tourist offer played an equally important part. Last but not least, the positive attitude, genuine energy and much-needed passion are vital elements of any kind of achievement and luckily enough, something Ljubljana has never struggled with.
