Breda Pečovnik, Congress and Commercial Programme Director

Q: What is the biggest impression CD Congress Centre has made on the events’ organisers?
I believe that we always surprise the organisers as a state-of-the-art venue, maintained and well-kept with attention to the smallest detail. Even when we act merely as a venue we can, as a PCO, apply our knowledge of the industry to events implementation.

Q: What about safety issue?
Green, logistically manageable, picturesque, enchanting, and shaped like a hen, Slovenia is a safe country not merely in our experience but also by international standards. We are well aware that safety is an important factor in organising meetings. Having a safe congress or conference is a priority.

Q: What particularity is your added value?
The CD Congress Centre Ljubljana is a venue of national importance, co-habiting with the country’s main cultural centre under one roof. Excellent connections in the artistic sphere can contribute to unique events, complementing a meeting with culture. Be it something from our regular selection (exclusive, VIP, special treatment with ticket and seating area reservation, and catering) or tailored-made programme on request. Congress = art²

Q: Why would meetings planners choose you?
Because we can build a reliable, innovative and efficient partnership.
