+ The magical city par excellence and one of the most extraordinary world destinations. A combination of sites, churches, villas and ancient palaces alongside new facilities with all the latest meetings services. Venice and its province are unquestionably hospitable by vocation, as illustrated by some of the most famous hotels and temples of hospitality. Venice is a city which has long been hosting world events. As a commercial crossroads it is easy to reach either by land or by sea, the city offering various means of transport. A city with irresistible charm and a wide range of different offers typical to the "Italian way of life".+ Dubrovnik is a city growing and developing as a result of its meetings industry. It will be a big part of the future of this industry for the entire region, primarily as the most successful Croatian and regional brand on the global meetings market. With no exaggeration we can claim the destination brand of the entire region will hang on Dubrovnik. It will lead the region as the first destination where international and local hotel chains are opening convention centres and performing intensive co-branding. The results are numerous international corporation incentives booking up the season and convention centres opening one after the other.
