Well, when you see what we have prepared for you, it's not enough to say you will be surprised!

MEETEX 2021 PROGRAM – BOTH VIRTUAL AND LIVE EXPERIENCE!

Although quite a new project, after only two editions MEETEX has already become the flagship event of the meetings industry in Croatia, and these challenging times will not stop us. Due to the global COVID-19 crisis, in March 2021 we will not meet physically, however we have planned an innovative program, setting a platform for you – meeting professionals worldwide – to be inspired by our fascinating destination, to interact with colleagues and meet new ones, to exchange ideas and prepare yourself for the industry of tomorrow! 2021 might just as well be the most important year in this decade in terms of preparation for returning to normality, showing how crisis can also convey new opportunities.

Please be aware we will be using a platform not only to organize 1-on-1 meetings and video screenings, but also to chat in your free time. The platform will also remain open 30 days after MEETEX 2021 in March.
Since nothing can replace a personal touch and on-site involvement, POST-MEETEX 2021-FAMTRIPS are scheduled to happen in early Autumn 2021, with the help of our associates and partners – Croatian National Tourist Board, local tourist boards and other partners. All trips should start from Zagreb and will be covering the most important Croatian meeting destinations. Buyers can indicate their preferences, but the final choice will be done by Exhibitors. Of course, this will obviously depend on epidemiological situation in Croatia and Europe. We do wish to ensure that Buyers can fully appreciate Croatia – its destinations, venues, local culture, and cuisine while traveling with assurance and confidence. Safety, professionalism, and fun will be our priorities.
Looking forward to having you on MEETEX 2021!
