Name and surname: Blaž Majerič
Company: Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre
Position: Intern in IT Department

As a young boy, Blaž was always obsessed with technology and how it can impact our daily lives. He has always wanted to fiddle around with new things and get things to work in new ways.

As an intern in IT, he was offered a job to lead, create and manage registration sites and abstract submissions for large congresses and meetings at Cankarjev dom.

Q: What is your favourite meetings brand?

My favorite meetings brand is without a doubt Cankarjev dom. We strive to have the best team on our meetings and congresses combined with state-of-the-art technology supporting online registrations and abstract submissions – EventsAir. We have an amazing team and the workplace is always a blast.

Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?

Changing career. I was offered a good job in the company I worked for as a student. I was pressured by friends and family to accept the job, but I didn’t. The work simply didn’t interest me and didn’t allow me to follow my true passion of IT and technology. I had to start from scratch. Luckily, I got a job at Cankarjev dom while I was still an intern in IT.

Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?

Probably graphic design or working with electronics.

Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?

Virtual and augmented reality. It is an amazing experience to witness immersive 3D environments in games and movies.

Q: Your goals before 50?

To still do the work I do today. I don’t think it could ever get boring and it is always a daily challenge and a joy.
