Belgrade is an authentic, open and hospitable congress destination with soul.It features a plethora of floating restaurants and clubs, plus lively riverbank promenades.
Belgrade has a good basis for the development of the meetings industry, with a large convention centre, the Belgrade Fair, numerous convention hotels, a long tradition and very reasonable prices. Belgrade bases its congress story on a rich culture at the crossroads of East and West, the central position in the South-East Europe and a lively social life.
It is a city on the rise and a rough congress diamond that has enormous development potential and can be placed geo-strategically side by side with world congress capitals, once it improves its infrastructure and handles the entire meetings sales chain
In short, the zeitgeist of Belgrade is best summed up by writer Momo Kapor with the words: “Belgrade is a low-budget New York.”
