Name and surname: Klara Rogina
Company: GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre
Position: Assistant Project Manager
While studying at the Faculty of Tourism Studies – Turistica, Klara was lucky to discover an interesting sector of tourism called ”the meetings industry” . For her it all started with attending the Future Leaders Forum in 2017. Just little over a year later, while still being a student, she is incredibly happy and proud to be working for the GR Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre as a freelance.
Q: What is your favourite meetings brand?
GR Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre is my favourite meetings brand because it is a place where ambition, innovation, knowledge and collaboration are deeply valued. I have only been working here for a month, and I am already impressed with how the GR team manages to organize and carry various types of business events, everything from congresses to fairs and even concerts.
Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
Probably moving to Amsterdam for 5 months. I received an opportunity for an internship at the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA). Since I don’t consider myself as being a verry brave person, leaving my friends and family for almost half a year has definitely been the bravest thing I have ever done.
Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?
Being a ballet dancer. I started dancing at the age of 7 and ever since then, ballet is the one thing that always makes me smile and helps me relax after a stressfull day. I enjoy nothing more than being in the Opera House on a Friday night, watching the Nutcracker or Swan Lake for the 50th time.
Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?
Doing my job as best as I can and becoming a permanent employee of the GR Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. Since I’m only 22 years old, I am even more motivated to make sure that the projects I am working on are executed in the best possible way.
Q: Your goals before 50?
Living a life that will still every morning bring a smile to my face.
