From beginning of June 2020, Cankarjev dom – CD Cultural and Congress Centre Ljubljana is allowed to host meetings again. Reason being that as of 1 June 2020, the Slovenian Government declared the end of epidemic. Major easing of restrictions has been lifted as all tourism facilities are allowed to reopen. Even more important for the meetings industry is the fact that the gatherings of up to 200 people are allowed again. Thus, Cankarjev dom is also preparing to host the new meeting season or we could even call it the post-Covid meetings season.

With its 22 multifunctional halls and rooms on a staggering 36,000 square meters which can accommodate as many as 5,000 visitors, the largest and most important Slovenian congress centre surely is happy to be able to host smaller conferences and congresses again. Cankarjev dom (CD) has already announced the cultural and arts programme coming back, like exhibitions, concerts, as well as the  Jazz and the Documentary festivals that will be held this June.

As the meetings so far can only consist of up to 200 participants, the largest plenary hall, the magnificent Gallus Hall that can host in its auditorium setting as many as 2,000 participants, will not yet open its door this time. However, this certainly is not an issue, as also the smaller of CD’s halls are beautiful, inspiring and welcoming. Each one of them is unique.

Linhart Hall is beautiful and exciting for its red decour that gives it a feeling of warmth and coziness while at the same time it shines in style and class. This Cankarjev dom’s second largest halls with the theatre style of a stage is a very sought for venue. Much beloved is also the Kosovel Hall, dressed in bright colours of cherry, walnut and bambus wood which was last year completely refurbished in soft

BLACK BOX AND ARENA

CD boasts also the only arena stage in Slovenia. With its unique amphitheatre style, the Štih Hall is a special venue designed to facilitate intimate interaction with the audiences. Another of the unique Cankarjev dom halls is the Duša Počkaj Hall with its auditorium style of a black box theatre, thus, an »out-of-the-box box« intended for event organisers who are up for a different and unusual venue offering an intimate and artistic experience of a business meeting.

MEZZANINE AND TOP FLOOR

In the mezzanine floor of the majestic Grand Reception Hall of the CD, the conference room Lili Novy was last year beautifully renovated. On one side it is overlooking the Grand Reception Hall through a thick glass that works as a sound barrier between both halls, while the windows on the opposite wall provide a warm welcoming daylight. And to top the mezzanine, so to say, is the hall on the top floor of Cankarjev dom. The Club CD located on the 6th floor floor also happens to provide a terrace with a 360° views across Ljubljana and beyond, to the distanced peak of Alps.

Each one of them unique, and each one of them central. As central as the Cankarjev dom which is located in the heart of Ljubljana, with easy and quick access to any of Slovenia capital’s sight-seeings as well as important buildings and locations.
