THE 70th ISSUE OF KONGRES MAGAZINE TAKES YOU INTO THE REFRESHING WORLD OF AUTHENTICITY AND ONTO THE STAGE OF CONVENTA CROSSOVER 2018!
What a hot summer! The new, celebratory, 70th edition of our Kongres Magazine provides for a perfect and so much needed refreshment! Jump with us into its content, swim among the stories focused on authenticity, and snorkel behind the front curtain of the Conventa Crossover‘s stage.
All that is authentic is genuine. Everyone likes to search for and come up with unique experiences that are nothing but authentic, and slightly nostalgic stories with a bit of spice. The main focus of the summer issue is everything that forms the core of every good event.
Conventa Crossover, though, is not just a good event, but it is also a »Festival of Events and Live Marketing«! It will be held in Ljubljana on the 30th and 31st of August 2018. Look behind its stage’s curtain and register for the only such event in the region of New Europe!
Enjoy the swim and get ready for the Autumn digital issue which will bring articles on co-creation in the meetings industry …
