Q: What do you love about meetings?
The fact that we, as organisers, have the possibility to create memorable events that won’t be easily forgotten. On the one hand, we make people’s wishes come true, and on the other hand, we advise them and provide ideas.

Q: Your tips for the perfect event?
Combine business with pleasure, go local. It’s a fact: people love to socialise, and informal networking and teambuilding can be even more important than the formal part of an event. In terms of the contents of accompanying activities, I would recommend to always link them to the local environment.

Q: Why organise meeting in your city/hotel?
Precisely for the combination of business and pleasure. Bled blends meeting expertise and excellent facilities with an absolutely stunning natural setting and plentiful options for getting to know the local environment, may it be through its cuisine, culture or outdoor sporting activities.

Q: The most memorable event for you?
We have recently organised the gala dinner in the framework of the Best Western meeting, which was a great success. We managed to pack a lot of programme into a very tight schedule of hoteliers who only came to Bled for the dinner, and succeeded in giving the participants a good feel of the local environment through the selection of venues, the music and the choice of menu and wines.

Q: Food for thought?
Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success. (Henry Ford)
