Conventa Week, organised by Toleranca Marketing and the Slovenian Convention Bureau in partnership with the Slovenian Tourist Board, will be held 24–27 August in hybrid format, with a live event taking place in Ljubljana. It will combine two events: the Conventa Trade Show and Conventa Crossover conference.

Conventa Trade Show, the oldest MICE event in the region, will take place from 25 to 26 August 2021, attended by 75 exhibitors and 110 international hosted buyers. 1,803 appointments between exhibitors and hosted buyers have already been pre-scheduled and the organisers expect more than 2,500 appointments to be made.

The organisers are seeing a strong demand for live meetings. A surprising fact is that the vast majority of international guests will be attending the event live. This means that the desire to meet with people in person is stronger than ever, which is positive news for the meetings industry and live events in general. 

Special attention will be paid to ensuring a safe event, strictly adhering to the Vaccinated, Tested, Recovered Rule. It is particularly interesting to note that 86% of all participants answered that they are vaccinated. 

"Conventa is sending a positive message to the world and is working to build renewed trust in events of all kinds. Conventa is still alive because it is persistent, courageous and committed to its mission. Together we can do it and we can organise events in a safe way. We will prove it at the end of August," emphasised Miha Kovačič, co-founder of Conventa.
