“We are not saying we are the best. Others say we are. For us, the greatest recognition is the level of loyalty we receive.”
Conventa is a leading, new European trade show for meetings, events and incentive travel which, for the tenth consecutive year, will take place in January, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Conventa has become the leading marketplace for the meeting industry of New Europe and the trade show facilitates personal contacts between an international hosted buyer community and the wide choice of meetings supplier businesses from New Europe.
The core of Conventa remains a professional platform for creating business opportunities and exchanging expertise in a relaxed atmosphere, complemented with unforgettable happenings
There are many reasons why we think registering now and ensuring you place at the 10th Conventa held from 24 to 25 of January in Ljubljana is the smartest marketing decision you can make and we can support it with some simple facts:
1. It’s all about quality not quantity
Although the number of hosted buyers is pretty much the same year after year, each time you participate, 90 % of hosted buyers are new and they are all cherry-picked by us.
2. Nothing matters more than actual business leads
Based on the satisfaction survey, already during the show, more than two thirds of Conventa 2017 exhibitors generated 1-5 business leads, while 17,8 % of exhibitors gained 6-10 business leads. Imagine how many important leads follow afterwards…
3. No time wasted searching for potential clients
For the organization of a sales meeting you will spend on average at least 60 minutes. At Conventa 2017 on average exhibitor pre-scheduled 25 appointments but conducted 31 meetings in total. This would mean each exhibitor saved 29 hours of organizational time, not to mention the time saved for planning the business trips, travel and actual meeting.
4. Conventa marketing channels can be used to your advantage 365-days a year
The sooner you register, the more marketing you will get. Remember, Conventa has a large data base of 69.000 meetings professionals. The show continuously communicates with its target audience and uses numerous marketing channels to do so.
5. Personal touch and the friendliest show in the New European region
Great hospitality is what warms up even the coldest hearts that is why Conventa is a place where your coffee cup never runs dry. In 2017, on a scale from 1 to 5, Conventa exhibitors rated the friendliness and effectiveness of the show organizer with 4,55.
6. Socializing together means making business together
Conventa is the only trade show that organizes joint social events making sure exhibitors and hosted buyers can network every step of the way. There is no stress, just a friendly and productive atmosphere ideal for a relaxed matchmaking experience. Let us just mention that on average exhibitors conducted 4 meetings during Conventa 2017 social events.
7. Knowledge makes the world go round
Knowledge was, is and always will be crucial in our industry. Conventa is fully aware of that. Every year the show introduces top knowledge modules for the regional industry that are complimentary. We will learn together also in 2018.
8. It’s all about verified satisfaction
In 2017 more than 30 % of exhibitors said the quality of services exceeded the price of participation. A whooping 88,9 % of exhibitors think investment in exhibiting at Conventa will pay off completely or at least partly.
9. When others say its worth to exhibit then it must be true
Eighty percent of exhibitors said they will very likely exhibit also at Conventa 2018 and almost all (97,8 %) would recommend the show also to their colleagues.
