As an introduction to the more detailed overview of the main conference facilities, we would like to pinpoint some of the major players among our local suppliers.

The largest convention centre in Slovenia is Cankarjev dom in central Ljubljana, which comprises 20 halls, with a maximum plenary seating capacity of 2,000. Cankarjev dom also employs a full-time PCO agency and has a long history of hosting successful international events. It is a member of ICCA, IAPCO and AIPC.

The Grand Hotel Union is a beautiful Art Nouveau building and is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2005. Set in a prestigious location in the very heart of Ljubljana, its facilities include 21 halls / meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 850 delegates. It is also a member of ICCA.

Other fine meeting venues are the five-star Lev Hotel and two newly opened hotels, the designer Mons Hotel (ICCA member), boasting a green and quiet location, and the high-tech Domina Grand Media, one of the world’s most modern hotels. Successful meetings may also be held at some other hotels, as well as university halls, scientific and economic institutions.

Ljubljana has fine restaurants in abundance, and other venues are available for special functions, such as the National Gallery, the courtyard of the Križanke theatre, which is an old monastery, Ljubljana Castle, the Slovenian Philharmonic, and the City, National and Railway Museums among others.

Every conference venue in our warm and friendly city takes pride in its efficient service, and PCO’s and DMC’s are on hand to ensure the smooth running of every aspect of any event.

Last, but not least, the congress department of the Ljubljana Tourist Board is a reliable,  professional and objective source of information on the venues and services available.
