To share knowledge & good practices and to create opportunities to discover the Region is the main reason behind the forthcoming regional event, BSB Conference World Summit 2020
On the 20th & 21st February 2020, the city of Varna, Bulgaria will host the 1st edition the Conference World Summit, focused on the countries of the Black Sea & Balkans region. By organising the Black Sea & Balkans Conference World Summit 2020, we would like to CONNECT the region, to build bridges and create new ideas for cross-border MICE projects. It is also an excellent opportunity for the countries and cities and overall business society to showcase their strategic vision for the development of their priority sectors – tourism, energy, culture, IT, automotive and creative industries.
By organising the BS&B Conference World Summit, we would like to emphasize the importance of the MICE industry and the preconditions it creates for directly establishing valuable contacts with local and foreign partners, expanding the markets of local companies and increasing their efficiency.
