Let's talk Future at Conventa Crossover!

In the past 6 months, we have been faced with unexpected challenges that tested our courage and problem-solving skills. The 5th edition of Conventa Crossover will gather over 30 international experts, who have already adapted their business models to the new situation and are ready to share their extensive knowledge. If you want to find out what’s next in the constantly changing business events industry, Conventa Crossover is the place to be.

This year, Conventa Crossover will be all about finding solutions for the survival of our industry. From exciting panel discussions about the future of events and destination marketing, keynote lectures about meeting design, user experience and audience engagement to a Face2Face session, where the leading regional meetings industry experts from associations and agencies will go head to head. Crossover’s bold, innovative and motivational programme can be viewed here. Before you come to Ljubljana or join the conference virtually, we wanted you to meet our storytellers.
