They are followed by exhibitors from Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Austria, Italy, Bulgaria and Albania. Around 15 percent of exhibitors are newcomers. Presenting their offer to selected hosted buyers at Conventa for the first time will be Hit Alpinea, iDMC, Rogaška Hotels & Lotus Terme, Turizem Bled, Adria Kongres, Arena Turist, Globtour Event, Uniline, Rina Travel and MK Mountain Resort.
