This year, the Croatian Tourist Board (CTB) is once again presenting the Croatian offer of business tourism, that is, the MICE segment, at the Conventa congress fair, which is being held from August 23 to 25 in Ljubljana.
92 exhibitors from 17 countries are participating in the congress fair, and in addition to the Congress Department of the CTB, the congress departments of the tourist boards of the cities of Zagreb and Dubrovnik are also participating in the fair.
"This year's fair is the 14th in a row, and so far it has profiled itself as one of the most important places for creating new contacts and additional values for all participants focused on MICE tourism. Our goals at Conventa include the promotion and positioning of Croatia as a quality and attractive destination for business trips," said CTB director Kristjan Staničić, adding that MICE tourism is extremely important for stimulating tourist traffic in the periods before and after the main season.
And Bruno Bonifačić, the director of the CTB office in Ljubljana, stated that “the greatest interest in our country is expressed from neighbouring markets, such as Slovenia and Hungary, precisely because of the proximity of the market and the possibility of using road routes in the case of larger corporate groups traveling.”
