On 24 January 2018 the City of Ljubljana received the Conventa Best Event Award 2017 for organising the EUROCITIES Conference. The day before Ljubljana also received the Meeting Star Award.

Best event in 2017

In the category best event of the year there were 12 submitted projects or events, and 5 of them made it into the finals. A professional jury comprised of internationally renowned experts evaluated creativity, innovation, execution, event results, communication excellence and sustainable practices, and based on these criteria chose our project EUROCITIES – Circular Cities as the best event in 2017.

This is the second consecutive year Ljubljana won an award at Conventa, namely, last year we received an award in the category business to customer communication for the European Green Capital 2016 information office Point.For You.
