The Meetings Star Award has been awarded for the past twelve years by the editorial board of Kongres Magazine and Conventa to the best destinations, meeting hotels and individuals. The gala ceremony for the winners will take place on Tuesday, 22 February 2022 at 17.00 online.

Before the event in February, it is our honour to present the best convention centres in the eighth category – BEST SLOVENIAN CONVENTION CENTRES.

There are eight convention centres in Slovenia according to the standards of the Slovenian Convention Bureau. Several more are located in larger specialised congress hotels. In the previous year, we evaluated six convention centres, five of them earning our certificate.

Convention centres play an integral role in the development of the meetings industry.

5 BEST CONVENTION CENTRES IN SLOVENIA IN 2021/2022

Category H – BEST CONVENTION CENTRES IN SLOVENIA
The capacity of the convention centre for less than 500 attendees

WINNER: CANKARJEV DOM
Final Mark: 4.91

Without Cankarjev dom and its team, the Slovenian meetings industry would not be what it is today. Slovenia’s cultural and convention meeting point is where Slovenian history was written. Cankarjev dom has been the heart of creative congresses and events in Slovenia for the past four decades. Our last evaluation has shown that it has brilliantly adapted to the new corona reality. Regardless of the crisis, the convention centre continued with the renovation and implemented new digital services. With the latest refurbishments, all halls are now more diverse, comfortable, appealing and, more importantly, adapted to modern technological demands. Congress and event attendees can enjoy the rich cultural offer anytime. That is why, according to our evaluation, Cankarjev dom belongs to the top five convention centres in this part of Europe. On top of that Cankarjev dom is a perfectly oiled congress machine, which does not show its age and is in excellent condition after recent renovations.
