Prague Convention Bureau director says the city has made great progress
Prague won the 2013 Meeting Star Award in the category of meeting destinations awarded by Slovenian Kongres magazine, which focuses on the region of Central and South East Europe. The editorial board of the magazine prepared an overview of convention centers, hotels and congress destinations that were assessed by hidden congress guests. In total, Prague collected 4.64 points and ranked higher than Dubrovnik and Budapest.
For the third year in the row, Kongres magazine called a tender for the Meetings Star Award – an award for outstanding contributions in the field of marketing communication of destinations, congresses, events and meetings industry suppliers in South East Europe. The award is a visible recognition of creativity, knowledge and work based on team work and experience that brought clear and measurable results.
The winners in five categories — Top Destination, Top Convention Center, Top City Meeting Hotel, Top Resort Meeting Hotel and Inside Award — were awarded during the welcome reception at 2014 Conventa trade show in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on Jan. 21, 2014. Prague was represented by Prague Convention Bureau, the official convention bureau of the city of Prague.
“For us, this award is the sign that Prague has significantly improved the level of provided congress services and currently ranks among the European top,” says Lenka Žlebková, managing director of Prague Convention Bureau.
“I would like to thank all who have been supporting us in our efforts to highlight Prague on the congress map of Europe, whether they be Prague Convention Bureau members, our partners or representatives of the City. With their help we managed to get really far over the last three years and we believe that we can meet our ambitious goals and get Prague among the best congress destinations not only in Europe but also worldwide,” she added.
