Lithuania at EIBTM 2013

Another co-sponsor of our “tmf-connect” networking event in Barcelona: Vilnius Convention Bureau.

If you are looking for new ideas – take a look to Lithuania situated in the geografical centre of Europe, proud of a natural environment, ample recreation resources, a marvelous coastline and several UNESCO world heritage sites. Furthermore, the country has a well developed, world class infrastructure, well-respected scientific intitutions and a strong scientific community.

Vilnius – the capital of Lithuania boasting a large number of hotels, the majority of which are to be found in the city’s Old Town and central business districts. The choice is diverse, featuring many international top names including Kempinski, Le Meridien, Relais & Chateaux, Radisson Blu, Ramada, Holiday Inn as well as cosy boutique hotels and guesthouses run by local families.

Vilnius can offer the most incredible venues for various events – inside its medieval defensive walls, 170 metres in the air, in the large grounds of an outdoor sculpture park or inside a reconstructed palace of the Grand Dukes just next to a magnificent cathedral. Whatever business or meeting requirements clients need, Vilnius is more than capable of providing exactly the right solution.

In 2013, Vilnius launched the meetings tradeshow CONVENE – the first event of its kind in the Baltic Sea Region. It provided the opportunity for international buyers to learn about the impressive range of meetings facilities on offer in this culturally rich and diverse region. The inaugural event held in February was widely heralded a huge success, winning praise from hosted buyers, visitors and exhibitors alike. The CONVENE is a driving force for the development of  meetings industry in the entire Baltic Sea Region.
