South East Europe
Meetings Industry Magazine
The demand in organising meetings in South East Europe is decidedly growing. Following the figures of the 2012 Conventa trade show, the percentage of meeting planners interested in holding events in this emerging meeting industry region and discovering it first-hand at the Conventa show increased by 41,2 %. Aware that the success of the event depends on the quality of meetings planners, Conventa organisers focus on attracting meeting planners with real buying power and a confirmed interest in the region of South East Europe, giving Conventa a strategic advantage over other industry events. At the 2012 edition of the trade show, Conventa therefore accommodated only one third of meeting planners who applied for the hosted buyer status.
Also this year meeting planners will have to demonstrate their interest in organizing meetings and events in South East Europe and meet certain organizer’s criteria in order to enjoy the hosted buyer benefits the show offers. »Conventa is the only trade show in South East Europe designed to bring together local suppliers and carefully chosen global buyers in a friendly environment that stimulates interpersonal relations between the participants. The hosted buyer selection process at Conventa seems to get stricter every year which results in the increased interest of exhibitors for this show,« shares Snezana Vejnovic from Talas-M, Montenegro.
