Editor-in-Chief of Kongres Magazine
In November issue, we present you the crème de la crème professionals from the meetings industry – The most influential people in New Europe meetings industry. We focused on 5 categories: top meeting architects (DMO, CVB etc.), top meeting agencies, top meeting innovators (marketing, technology, etc.), top hotels and venues and top meeting services. Are you wondering who influenced and marked the year of 2017 with their presence? Take a look, meetings industry has a lot of extraordinary people!
SPECIAL VENUES 2017
In the Special venues 2017 section, top 30 Alpe Adria special and unusual venues, voted by the readers of KONGRES magazine are presented. Each event organiser wants their participants to remember the experience as much as possible for all the right reason – the first, and we also believe the most important one, is to choose a venue that is special in itself.
In the section views, we decided to go after the hot topic – agencies vs. clients. We are very curious about how the agencies and clients work together, what they expect from each other, how they view each other, and so on. For this reason, we contacted both, agencies and clients to get their invaluable insight on the matter. In this issue, we are presenting answers from the agencies, while in the next issue we will present answers from the clients. Enjoy the reading and be surprised!
In this section, we focused on the creativity in events and asked our interviewees on five “how’s”. How do they boost creativity at events, how do they sell it, measure it, manage it and organise it?
See it for yourself and be surprised by the nine interviewees and their answers.
For this issue, we present you the capital of Romania, Bucharest, the city with one of the most untapped potentials for the development of congress tourism in New Europe.
