Besides maintaining the leading role as the central Slovenian congress centre with the largest number of international congresses, CD also focuses on being professional congress organizers (PCO) on other locations. In their line of work as PCO, they’ve cooperated with diverse clients and successfully executed many congress events in Slovenia and abroad, with one of the latest the ECML-PKDD 2017 in Skopje, Macedonia.
Jožef Stefan cooperated on the organization of this important congress with the professional congress team of CD Congress Centre Ljubljana, responsible for the congress implementation through all 5 days and held at 3 different locations. Organizing a congress at 3 locations can be a challenge, but not for skilled and professional PCO like CD Congress Centre Ljubljana, which proved to be excellent in their business. Combining 3 prestigious locations, the main conference venue at the Hotel Aleksandar Palace widely known for organization of different congresses, conferences and other business events, one of the most prestigious venues in Macedonia.
The two additional locations were the Macedonian national theatre where the opening ceremony, invited talk and welcome reception took place, and the other was the great Macedonian Opera and Ballet, hosting the invited talks, demo spotlights and demo & poster sessions. All in attempt to give the congress delegates the true feel of Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia and the city that lies in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad of important communications, a city with a 2000 years old tradition. With all its historic value and stories behind the walls of great venue locations, it proved to be the right choice for the congress, known for its casual and relaxed atmosphere, with numerous networking possibilities and social activities.
