Cankarjev dom – CD Cultural and Congress Centre Ljubljana is not just the most eminent congress centre in Slovenia, but it is also a hub of corporate events and meetings. For many years it has been the venue for a diverse palette of corporate clients. Petrol Group, one of Cankarjev dom’s clients for corporate events and meetings, is also one of its strongest partners contributing to the cultural programme of Cankarjev dom as a sponsor.

Petrol, as the largest Slovenian energy company and the largest Slovenian importer, is also the largest Slovenian company in terms of revenues, and one of the largest Slovenian retail companies. For its operations, Petrol often prepares events and meetings inside Cankarjev dom’s halls, spanning from corporate events to celebratory gatherings. We talked to the Head of Corporate Communications at Petrol, Aleksander Salkič. We asked him why does Petrol choose Cankarjev dom for events, what they like about the venue, and why would they recommend it to other businesses as the venue for corporate events and meetings.

They always welcome us with open arms, provide us with technical and organisational assistance, and take care of top-notch events. Our cooperation is based on a great deal of trust. And time and time again we are surprised by their excellence, heartfulness, creativity and the respect given to us, supporters of Cankarjev dom. At the same time, with a wide repertoire of projects and events, they provide us with the opportunity to expand our cultural horizons.”

Besides business and corporate events, Cankarjev dom hosts also scientific and professional meetings of international and domestic character that contribute to knowledge and science for the world. In less than a month, another rich congress year for Cankarjev dom is starting.
