+ Zagreb generally makes a good impression on the visitor. It is a great, small place in terms of accessibility and transport. For a foreigner, the first impression is certainly ‘Central European’. Generally, the city is safe, clean, comfortable and friendly to congress participants. The good ratio between price and quality is especially attractive; this has a positive impact on the competitiveness of the destination. As its main advantage, we would highlight the compactness and high quality of hotel accommodation, which combined with cultural and historical heritage is the formula for success. Everything is seasoned with the right dose of metropolitan character and friendliness of the locals.+ Congress tourism goes hand in hand with the high-tech industry. Here is the seat of Airbus and many companies related to the aviation industry. Many research institutions and one of the oldest universities in France are driving the powerful meetings industry. The public-private convention bureau SoToulouse has over 100 members. The accessibility is good, as its airport is the fifth largest in France. There is a high quality of living in a city that is green, sunny and friendly to congress participants. The hotel sector has 173 hotels and 8,573 rooms. The city has more than 1,000 restaurants with authentic French cuisine. A destination where tradition and future successfully mix, which is represented by the aviation industry as well as other technological parks and development centres.
