COMPARISON WITH THE REGION
As the capital of Macedonia, Skopje is a crossroads of international paths and has all the predispositions to develop the meetings industry. It still has a long way to investing in infrastructure. Its nearest neighbour is the Greek city Thessaloniki, which is far more developed and hosts up to 15 international congresses annually, in comparison to Skopje which only hosts 1 according to ICCA. In Skopje, a convention can be organized with some effort, yet for a serious breakthrough, it needs to look to its neighbours for a model of successful development – the Thessaloniki Convention and Visitors Bureau, which combines over 100 members.
