In March and May 2022, MEETEX, the Croatian Meeting Experience Summit will be held for the fourth time in a row – in a hybrid format. This is the only B2B event of meetings, incentives, events and travel professionals in Croatia. While over 1000 online business meetings will take place from 15-17 March, live events are scheduled for May 2022.

Despite the circumstances, the event will be attended by more than 150 participants – Croatian exhibitors from the meetings-incentives-events sector, international hosted buyers, keynote speakers, educators, and notable guests. This year’s edition includes new niches: boutique & luxury hotels as well as destination weddings – the products highly demanded by the upscale international market. During 3 days in March, they will participate in 1-to-1 online business meetings, lectures, networking events – with one goal: to present Croatia as an ideal meeting, events, luxury travel and unforgettable weddings European destination.

Unlike any other similar European event, MEETEX is the only event promoting Croatia as a meeting and event destination. The MEETEX live part is scheduled for May where the exhibitors will nominate the best buyers to welcome them to their destinations on three fam trips: in Dubrovnik area, Dalmatia, Istria and Kvarner – all of them gathering in Zagreb, the capital.
