//To be or not to be? That is NOT the question!


Still trying to decide whether to come along and meet us at the Conventa 2018 edition? Whether to join us at our celebratory anniversary or not? To grab a few more coffees with us than might be recommended on a daily basis? To meet with the right connections for your business and turn these connections into solid friendships? Whether to come party with us and have a blast in Ljubljana?

Well, wonder no more. We have assembled the top 5 reasons why you, exhibitors, should join us and why you, hosted buyers, should take part in this amazing experience!

Read on – and we will be looking forward to meeting you on 24th and 25th of January 2018!


1. Saving time and money
In only two days you have the 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 only one-tenth of the price for a lead than you would pay at other trade shows.

2. Meeting cherry-picked buyers
Around 90% of meeting planners are new to the show each year and they all have to meet the organiser’s strict criteria in order to gain hosted buyer status.

3. Networking every step of the way
Conventa is the only trade show that organises joint social events, making sure exhibitors and hosted buyers can continue networking even after the trade show hours.

4. Marketing through Conventa channels
Conventa continuously communicates with more than 50,000 meeting professionals – promoting exhibitors and your stories is what we do successfully 365-days a year.

5. Gaining new knowledge
It has always been important to offer free of charge professional education to you as a part of the Conventa experience and on the other hand also give you a chance to educate others about what you do best during the show at our Experts’ Corner.


1. Discovering new destinations
Conventa opens your meetings horizons. The trade show introduces you to around 15 different New European destinations, 140 meeting providers and offers a personal experience of one destination of your choice on a fam trip.

2. All expenses covered
The hosted buyer programme includes a complimentary economy return air ticket from selected destinations, local transfers, accommodation, meals, evening receptions and a fam trip.

3. Personal itinerary of appointments
You get access to the online hosted buyer zone where you can schedule one-to-one appointments with exhibiting companies of your interest.

4. VIP treatment
You will feel like a Royal with the 24/7 support of the Conventa team, enjoying great hospitality and positive energy in a relaxed atmosphere all packed into the one-of-a-kind Conventa experience.

5. Gaining new knowledge
Conventa offers several education modules discussing relevant topics, following trends and answering burning questions. All free of charge and led by the best meetings industry professionals!
