New website for congress tourism CONVENTION!!!

The Convention Bureau for the Moravian-Silesian Region and the City of Ostrava, residing in the City Authority building, is launching a new website today called CONVENTION!!! in order to support congress and incentive tourism. This project has been implemented within the membership in the Czech Convention Bureau – Czech Tourism.

Ostrava is presented as an ideal location to hold congresses, workshops, meetings, and various other events. The city offers a unique, original atmosphere. The City of Ostrava regularly presents offers for this type of tourism to MICE segment experts at specialised trade fairs. Generally, experts show the greatest interest in Dolní oblast Vítkovice (Lower Vítkovice) and are pleasantly surprised by the accommodation possibilities offered, reasonable prices, and helpfulness of local inhabitants. Thus, the only challenge remaining for us is the accessibility, especially by air.

The CONVENTION!!! website, focused on the MICE segment, works in English and Czech. It provides experts with the most important information, such as accommodation possibilities in the region, which may be filtered according to particular tourist areas. Journalists are provided with quick information, presentations, and links to other important places. The website should serve also as an information channel accumulating information about the region. Currently it worked in a trial run, with further information to be added gradually.

Through these activities, pursued within its current agenda, the city endeavours to improve its positive image and to introduce itself as it really is – an industrial, dynamic, spirited, open, and charismatic city.

Under the CONVENTION!!! brand, the Ostrava City Authority became a member of the Czech Tourism Bureau – Czech Tourism on 1 January 2012. It represents regional subjects and communicates with them, promoting the whole Moravian-Silesian Region as a MICE destination. The website was paid for from the Czech Convention Bureau – Czech Tourism budget. More information
