The event is tailored to hosted buyer choice-the buyers choose who they want to see and what time of the day they want to have their pre scheduled meetings. Our high quality educational programme adds an additional dimension to the extensive range of hosted buyer benefits on offer.
Organised by the Vilnius Convention Bureau in association with Kennedy Integrated Solutions, the event features the countries of the Baltic Sea Region. 165+ hosted buyers from throughout Europe are expected to attend with an estimated 3750 pre-scheduled business appointments to be conducted. Buyers will meet some 80 exhibitors from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Russia. Building on the success of the three first editions, which have seen over 430 hosted buyers in attendance, CONVENE 2016 will present the very high quality hospitality of the Vilnius meetings industry community and all that this UNESCO World heritage destination has to offer.
