Portoroz & Piran on Conventa Trade Show

This year in August we participated on one of the most important European congress fairs, the Conventa Trade Show in Ljubljana! And since congress tourism is one of the most important directions of the Portoroz & Piran tourism strategy, of course we should not have missed it. This year we decided that everyone should remember us - we delighted visitors with Cafe Portorož and the real Mediterranean atmosphere. All together with our partners LifeClass Portorož, Hoteli Bernardin and Kempinski Palace Portorož we had more than 120 b2b meetings and a lot of non formal contacts with quality potential buyers. After the lockdown this was the first live activity and everybody could feel the positive energy and optimism! Thanks to all partners for visiting us on the show. 

Short but sweet visit of the destination
After the Trade show we hosted 15 agents specialized in the MICE segment to the post-fam trip to the destination. We brought guests from 11 countries that traveled to Portorož & Piran from Ljubljana by the bus Vinska Fontana Marezige, they were host at the LifeClass PortorožHoteli Bernardin and Kempinski Palace Portorož hotels, they also visited Piran and its Venetian House - Casa Veneziana and tasted local cuisine at the Fonda fish farm. The partners were extremely enthusiastic about our places and our hospitality, so we expect them to visit us in the future with groups of business guests 😉

Conventa Hall of Fame goes to....
We are proud to announce that Fredi Fontanot (our MICE destination coordinator) received the flattering title of "Conventa Hall of Fame" - which is a magnificent award for the whole MICE team at Portoroz & Piran! 
Official explanation of the award: Fredi Fontanot connects one of the most recognizable Slovenian meetings destinations - Portorož. In recent years, Portorož has once again fled to establish itself as a leading MICE destination in the Adriatic. In the past few years, Fredi has actively cooperated as a partner of Conventa and co-created the vision of the project. With a dose of courage and creativity, Fredi outlined the marketing promotion of Portorož that sent waves across the Convent. Thanks to him, Portorož has become a valuable business partner of the trade show, where they present themselves with a range of exhibitors. Moreover, it is Freddie Fontanot who helped to establish cooperation unimaginable a few years ago. With his motivation and diligence, Freddie inspires and encourages his destination while strengthening cooperation. That is why he has deservedly received this year’s special award by Conventa Academy.
