With the seventh edition of CONVENE less than four months away, things are taking shape for the Baltic Sea Region’s leading meetings and events industry exhibition. Registrations for the Hosted Buyer programme are pouring in from across Europe and the world from meeting planners looking for fresh, up-and-coming destinations. The event is set to take place on 13-14 February 2019 at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre, LITEXPO, in Vilnius.
Much like the region it represents, CONVENE makes quality its number-one priority. It aims to showcase just how much the region has to offer in terms of facilities, world-class services, cost effectiveness and more. Feedback from past editions of CONVENE has always been overwhelmingly positive.
The Hosted Buyer programme includes a number of exclusive benefits that allow buyers to make the most of their time. These include not only complimentary return fights, transfers, accommodation, and networking events, but also the opportunity to take part in one of the number of post-event tours to Latvia, Estonia and Poland. Pre-scheduled appointments afford Buyers the flexibility to take advantage of the highly-regarded CONVENE Education Sessions, which will take place on both days of the event.
“It’s great to see that interest in CONVENE remains strong after seven years of hosting it. It proves that Vilnius and neighbouring destinations are still fresh, and full of opportunities. Meeting and event planners are keen to learn about us, see industry developments, and find new partners. Vilnius itself has so much to offer in this regard: five new hotels in the city this year with another seven to follow by 2022, new modern venues, and service suppliers are ready for new challenges,” – says Go Vilnius Director Inga Romanovskienė.
Organised by the Go Vilnius Convention Bureau, CONVENE is a business marketplace with non-stop networking opportunities for meeting professionals. The event gathers the Baltic Sea meeting and events industry together under one roof and encourages knowledge and best practice sharing. Over 165 Hosted Buyers from Europe and beyond are expected to attend and take part in some 3,000 pre-scheduled business meetings with 85+ Exhibitors from the region during the two-day event.
