The numbers show that the interest in exhibiting at Conventa is now bigger than ever. Almost 80 percent of the available exhibitor stands at the trade show have already been booked. Conventa’s organizers are especially excited to welcome 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.
Meeting industry providers from South East Europe that intend to exhibit at Conventa don’t have a lot of time left for registration. Stands at the upcoming trade show are selling out like hot cakes. From 120 expected exhibitors, organizers have already confirmed that 92 meeting industry providers from SEE have booked their place at the trade show. The largest portion of exhibitors comes from Slovenia, Croatia, South of Austria, Montenegro, Serbia, followed by Italy, Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina. For the first time meeting industry providers from Turkey have came on board of the Conventa trade show. Since Turkey lies partially in SEE, hosted buyers will truly get acquainted with the meeting industry offer of the entire region.
Serra Tunaman Parlakisik from Tunes Travel Istanbul, first Turkish exhibitor, shared: “We have been participating at large events such as EIBTM, IMEX, 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 when we came across Conventa. We are looking forward to the trade show, looking into building a new portfolio and welcome newcomers. We want to introduce Turkey, its modern, new face and show our creativity.”
Miha Kovačič, Conventa organizer, enthuses: »We are excited that in four years the Conventa show has earned credibility and recognisability 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.”
Conventa, the leading business-to-business event in the area of meeting industry in South East Europe, will be held from 16 to 17 January 2013 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
