The 8th selection of New Europe’s influencers

Since 2014, Kongres Magazine has been giving centre stage to the most influential people of New Europe’s meetings industry.

The selection has earned recognition from the international meetings industry as Kongres Magazine evaluates candidates beforehand through its partner network. All shortlisted candidates are, therefore, reviewed before the selection. Kongres Magazine’s final shortlist is, in a way, an overview of who is who in the industry. With your assistance, we have developed various influencer categories that enable us to separate apples from pears and compare candidates.

Our selection is not just another online voting that gives doubtable results. On the contrary, it is a thorough selection of individuals that have left their mark on the regional meetings industry. We hope you will find our list valuable the next time you organise your event. It is with pride that we can say that we have been able to create a credible list of the most trustworthy professional in 2021. Hence, our project is not a competition, rather a professional platform that we will continue evolving.
