ARE YOU A CONGRESS STAR?

Gorazd, you must know which the best meeting hotels are. We are looking for a hotel with a modern convention centre, exquisite cuisine and friendly staff for our event. They must surpass our expectations and, more importantly, enthral our attendees with their additional offer. It would be best if we test the hotel as hidden guests prior to the event.

Having received questions alike, we developed the project Hidden Congress Guest and certificate of excellence dubbed the Meetings Star fifteen years ago. We evaluate hotels for demanding international event organisers and on the intiative of our readers. Nonetheless, most hotels themselves wish to test their quality and adapt their offer to the demanding needs of event organisers.

In 2021, the certificate was awarded to 212 hotels and convention centres out of 333 evaluated. The certified venues are at the forefront of the regional meetings industry. You can view all of them in our venue finder: https://kongres-magazine.eu/search-venues/.

Since the start of the evaluation, a mesmerising 472 hotels and 44 convention centres have been evaluated. Out of all evaluated hotels, 40,9% of them were certified.

With the help of the evaluation matrix for venues, we check 654 tangible evaluation criteria, divided into various categories. Among others, the hidden guest assesses first contact with the guest, general impression upon arrival, employee behaviour and numerous others.

The MEETINGS STAR is a certificate of quality. It is awarded only to the best meeting service providers who meet the requirements and needs of event organisers.
