Conventa 2012

EUROPE - The organiser of South East European meetings exhibition Conventa claim 80 per cent of the available stand space has been booked for the next edition, 16-17 January 2013.

The show has signed up the first ever exhibitor from Turkey making sure hosted buyers attending the trade show truly get acquainted with the meeting industry offer of the entire region of South East Europe.

The largest portion of the 92 exhibitors signed up are from Slovenia, Croatia, South Austria, Montenegro, Serbia, followed by Italy, Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Serra Tunaman Parlakisik from Tunes Travel Istanbul, the first Turkish exhibitor, said: “We have been participating at large events such as EIBTM, IMEX, International Confex for over 10 years but we feel that these shows are now saturated and have turned into prestige windows. We were looking for alternatives and new platforms to meet potential buyers and are looking forward to Conventa.”

Miha Kovacic, Conventa organiser, says he is excited that in four years the Conventa show “has earned credibility to attract an ever increasing number of meeting industry providers from the entire region. This truly makes Conventa the prime marketplace for the meeting industry of South East Europe”.

Kovacic and his team have had to work with limited financial backing, yet succeeded in rooting this regional meetings industry show into the international MICE calendar.
