THE FUTURE INCENTIVE CAPITAL OF THE BALKANS

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

Velingrad is already opening a new chapter in incentive travel. According to all its properties, it is an incentive destination. Everything is in place and ready even for the most demanding meeting organisers. The hotel structure is also appropriate, which is not always the case in competitive destinations. There are many advantages – they just have to be put together into suitable packages and programmes. Soon, this sleeping beauty will surely wake up and become a thorn in the side of its regional competitors. It just needs to seize its numerous opportunities and present them appropriately to the international meeting market.
