THE REGION'S WARMEST CITY

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

For now, Podgorica can rarely be found on the meetings industry map. Considering the outstanding potential it will over time come to have all that is necessary to be a true meeting destination. Among its advantages, there is its strategic position, which enables easy access to the most attractive parts of Montenegro for incentives. Among the weaknesses, we have to point out the current state of the meeting infrastructure and its transport isolation. Being an air travel destination it is highly dependent on the number of flight connections, including low-cost ones. A convention bureau for the town would greatly help in positioning the destination, which it deserves as a capital city. The town is developing quickly and is looking for the right image, torn between the classic tourism flow and the idea of development into a meeting destination.

*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
