Conventa Trend Bars are going virtual

Succeeding in event management takes up-to-date knowledge. To create a memorable and unique event that will leave the participants speechless takes an event planner to be aware of every single detail; knowing the participants’ habits, being informed about the techniques of moderation and interaction, and last but not least, knowing the technological and other future trends. Conventa Trend Bar is a knowledge roadshow that travels around the region and helps people create better events!

A new season of Conventa Trend Bars started in Varna in February and continued in Ljubljana in March. Due to COVID-19, we had to change our plans for a while….. But we have some good news! The eagerly anticipated Conventa Trend Bars won’t be cancelled but rather moved into the virtual world. The main part of the Trend Bar is an interactive workshop, where Gorazd Čad, CEO of Toleranca Marketing and Co-founder of Conventa will be talking about: “What works in event management and why”. The workshop will be followed by a case study presentation from a local meetings industry expert.


Next Conventa Trend Bar will be hosted by: Thessaloniki Convention Bureau

Thursday, 25 June 2020 from 11:00 to 12:30 (Thessaloniki local time)
Gorazd Cad will be joined by Ms. Eleni Sotiriou, Managing director of the Thessaloniki Convention Bureau
