All destinations have been evaluated on the basis of the field trips and research, in order to get as close as possible to the real situation.

In the L Meeting Destinations, which are the ones, that can host a maximum of 2,000 congress participants, offer the suitable infrastructure and aviation connections the winner was Ljubljana, with a score of 4.33.  While Ljubljana won in the L Meeting Destinations, Bratislava was one of the finalists, with the score of the 4.20.

The Bratislava city airport offers numerous connections and works in conjunction with Vienna airport, which is only about 50km from Bratislava city center.
