How will hybrid Conventa look like in practice?
The organisers of the Conventa Trade Show are already busy, preparing for what will be the first-ever hybrid edition of the event. For the first time since its inception, Conventa Trade Show will be taking place in the summertime – from 25 to 26 August 2021.
“We are aware that trust placed into the hands of a professional and adaptable organiser is of crucial importance. Therefore, we have decided to execute Conventa 2021 in hybrid form to ensure all partners and participants’ safety and inclusiveness in the event.”
As our reality will continue to be crafted by the pandemic, the organisers have prepared several measures and novelties, described in detail below. New restrictions also entail that the number of available spots for hosted buyers and exhibitors at the Conventa Trade Show is limited.
1. CONVENTA ONE2ONE MEETINGS
Meetings with hosted buyers will be pre-arranged via the official online app. The novelty of the application is that you will be able to conduct meetings with hosted buyers, either in person or online via the video connection. Online option will only be available for registered participants who will be unable to travel to Ljubljana due to the epidemiological situation.
2. CONVENTA BUTLER SERVICE
In the event that the epidemiological picture will be worse for registered exhibitors a week before the event, and they will not be able to attend the event live, the organisers will ensure butler service – an assistant that will help you organise online meetings at your stand. The service will be available for exhibitors from countries on the red list.
3. CONVENTA MEET&GREET
Conventa is renowned for its excellent culinary experience. Regardless of the restrictions, they will ensure that lunch breaks and evening receptions will be an unforgettable experience and opportunity for additional informal meetings. Conventa will encourage safe matchmaking in smaller groups.
4. CONVENTA HOTELS AND TRANSPORTATION
As in the past years, partner hotels will offer accommodation for exhibitors at special prices while ensuring their safety and wellbeing. Transportation between hotels and venues will be organised to limit the number of individuals in vehicles in line with the guidelines published by the National Institute of Public Health. As the event will take place in the summer, they will advocate using bicycles and walking.
5. CONVENTA 10 WOWs & EXPERIENCE ZONE
As every year, Conventa will be a treasury of ideas for your events. It will surprise you with creative ideas and present technological and other solutions for organising events. From informational technologies and systems for safe event execution, congress and promotional materials, equipment for creative meetings, team-building activities…
6. CONVENTA CROSSOVER
After Conventa, you are invited to join the Conventa Crossover conference – New Europe’s festival of events and marketing. With the help of select speakers, we will find answers to questions about the future of events. Conventa Crossover will also see the announcement of the Conventa Best Event Award finalists, and the best of the best will be crowned.
As the organisers prepare for Conventa, they are stemming their knowledge from the findings of Fieldlab’s test projects, which took place in the Netherlands in cooperation with TU Delft. They tested the safe execution of events in February 2021 at the “Back to Live” events. Conventa has used their recommendations as a core part of its ten measures to ensure safety.
SEE YOU AT #SAFECONVENTA FROM THE 25TH TO THE 26TH OF AUGUST 2021.
