Conventa Trend Bar report #4 Sofia

/, Conventa Trend Bar/Conventa Trend Bar report #4 Sofia

On 9 November, Trend Bar took place in Club Peroto. The local guest speaker, Teodora Jilkova focused on the topic of “sharing experience” and “looking for opportunities”. She also opened the door for “Meeting culture – Bulgaria”, a current project she is working currently on. Nearly forty representatives of the Bulgarian MICE industry joined in a lively and constructive debate.

Teodora is a result driven Sales & Business Development professional with a notable track record of securing new business to consistently exceed targets in B2B/B2C sales across multiple geographic regions including  – Europe, Russia, UAE, Far East and Latin America, as well as various industries – MICE, travel and tourism, real estate and property development. Teodora’s journey started from the real estate market, going through tourism and adding the finishing touch with being involved in the MICE industry.

Mr. Čad and Mrs. Jilkova both firmly believe in the power of meetings and face-to-face communication.

“I met Gorazd in 2014, when working for Mash Media in UK. That is certainly an important time for my business life, as had the opportunity to oversee the entire “back office” of the meeting industry! This is how my love about destination marketing has started and it is for sure growing on a daily basis. I feel I have a mission to market Bulgaria as a destination suitable for meetings, I feel it is,  therefore will keep doing everything possible to position the country on the global meetings map.”

The Peroto Club was a perfect place to share the knowledge, trends and general thoughts about the meetings industry. The inspirational and one of a kind place, among an endless number of books was filled up with a warm atmosphere. The participants were discussing serious MICE themes over a delicious cup of coffee.

Let’s just say that everyone left the club charged with positive and creative energy and with a handful of new knowledge!
