MYTHS ABOUT CONVENTA

Conventa is Expensive
NOT TRUE. Conventa is one of the B2B events where all of the costs are included in the price of the package: an equipped stand, coffee breaks, lunches and two evening receptions. So, on top of the exhibition package your only additional costs are travel and accommodation.
 
Are Hosted Buyers interested in my destination?
YES! Conventa is focused on presenting of the “New Europe” destinations, something that is clearly communicated with the meeting planners, who are carefully selected by different criteria. The advantage of the Conventa One2One meetings application is that you can see all of the hosted buyers in advance, so you can be well prepared for your meetings with them.
 
I have already been at Conventa so I won’t meet any new buyers if I come again.
NOT TRUE.
 Every year at Conventa around 90 % of the buyers are joining us for the first time, so it is even more important to attend Conventa regularly to be able to meet many new meeting planners as well as catch up with some of those contacts you have previously made.
 
Trade shows take too much time.
YES and NO. Have you ever calculated how much time you would spend trying to find 250 contacts, trying to arrange meetings with them, and then finally trying to meet just twenty of them in different European countries? At Conventa this will all be done in two days. And after Conventa you will get the full list of all hosted buyers with their contact details.
 
It is too late to join Conventa?
NOT TRUE. You can always join the list of exhibitors if there is room on the exhibition floor. However registering before the on-line system for pre-scheduling meetings opens is a wise choice!
