Ready to jump in bed with the storytellers of Crossover 2019?

…to listen to bedtime stories, of course.

Just like bedtime stories that we used to listen to as children, every event creates and shares its own story. A well-told story is an event where the narrator and the listener meet, where the participant and the speaker form a personal bond. Before you come to the hottest conference of the summer, we wanted you to meet our storytellers, to make the storytelling experience even stronger and more engaging.


Q: How are we going to organize events in the future?

Live becomes digital & digital becomes live! Driven by the ideas of collaboration, sharing & community-thinking, places (destination, locations, venues) will be definite anew.

Q: Is there something you would like to change in the world of events?

A change in mindset & understanding that events are not just another marketing channel to distribute given content & ideas, but a place where content & stories are created.

Q: What do you love about your job the most?

The engagement with people and experience when joint efforts come to life.

Q: In your opinion, what is live marketing’s best advantage?

It’s the only form of marketing which appeals to all five senses.


Q: What are you bringing to Conventa Crossover?

My curiosity to meet people, to engage & to part of sharing new ideas.

Q: What do you expect from Crossover in Ljubljana?

To provide an engagement platform for open-minded & curious people of our industry.

Q: Why should an attendee not miss your session?

Because you will never know what you have missed, if you do not attend.

Q: Hashtag suggestion for the 2019 edition?
