Meetings and incentives interwoven with the historical, cultural and natural wealth of
Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik as a conference and incentive destination offers numerous options for the
organization of unique and truly unforgettable corporate, scientific, professional and social
events. Its uniqueness is reflected in its rich historical and cultural heritage combined with
beautiful nature - the Mediterranean hinterland and the blue of the Adriatic Sea. In combination
with high-quality congress and accommodation infrastructure and top-quality and professional
DMC and PCO offer, they make Dubrovnik an unmissable destination for event organizers.
This is evident from the fact that Dubrovnik has a large share in the Croatian meetings industry
and that it hosts a large number of congresses, conferences, incentive programs, sports events,
and festivals held in Croatia.

Accommodation and conference facilities and infrastructure
Dubrovnik was recognized and developed as a tourist destination very early on, and along with
the development of tourism, the congress offer also developed. The first international
conference in Dubrovnik was held way back in 1897, when the Grand Hotel Imperial was
opened, and since the early 1970's, the infrastructure has been systematically developed and
quality conference hotels have been built. Today, there are more than 50 hotels in Dubrovnik, of
which 15 are five-star and 17 are four-star. The city has a total of 30,000 beds, of which more
than 12,000 are in hotels, and the rest in private accommodation and villas.
Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik Sun Gardens and Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel
in Mlini stand out among the largest conference hotels in Dubrovnik, as well as in Croatia,
with halls that can host 1,200 people. There is also the Rixos Premium Dubrovnik hotel, where
the capacity of the largest hall is 900 people. The largest hall of Hotel Croatia, in nearby Cavtat,
can host up to 850 people, Hotel Dubrovnik Palace 750, and Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik 650
people.
What makes Dubrovnik stand out as a meetings and event destination are its historic locations
as event spaces
that can enhance any event with their ambiance and historical charm - from
formal receptions and dinners, to the presentation and premier of new products, smaller
conferences, etc. One of them is the monumental fortress from the 16th century - Revelin
Fortress, the protector of the eastern gates of the city of Dubrovnik, which can host up to 400
people indoors, as part of a gala dinner, and the same number on the terrace. There is also the
Lovrjenac fortress on the opposite side of the city, often known as the Gibraltar of Dubrovnik,
which can host up to 500 people for a gala dinner and offers irresistible views over Dubrovnik.
The Rector's Palace, a luxurious Gothic-Renaissance palace from the 15th century, has a capacity
of up to 120 people for a gala dinner, and the Sponza Palace, a Renaissance palace from the 16th
century with an atrium and a vaulted gallery, has a capacity of up to 90 people. If it is a cocktail
party, or a buffet dinner, the capacities of these spaces are even larger. One of the largest special
spaces for the organization of events is Klarisa, a restaurant space within the monastery of St.
Clare behind the Great Onofrio's Fountain, which can host a total of 600 people in the outdoor
and indoor spaces, and which will soon become part of the Hard Rock Cafe franchise.


Expert and professional support
Professional organization of events also implies reliable partners in the destination, who know all
its advantages and possibilities and who follow world trends in the meetings and event industry.
Dubrovnik is an excellent choice in this segment, in addition to striking conference and event
spaces, it also offers top-notch professional support for organizers of all kinds of events.
Dubrovnik's specialized DMC and PCO agencies, with many years of experience in organizing
large international and world congresses and unique incentive programs, will provide the best
support with their expertise and creativity.
In addition, the Dubrovnik Convention Bureau of Dubrovnik Tourist Board, is available to
provide additional assistance in the organization of events - finding the perfect location, creating
tender documents, organizing inspection trips, connecting with local suppliers, advising on the
organization of guided tours and accompanying social programs - and providing free
promotional materials. The Convention bureau also works on the international promotion of
Dubrovnik as an ideal meetings and incentive destination.

An inexhaustible source of cultural, gastronomic and active incentive programs
Dubrovnik, as a UNESCO city and the pearl of the Adriatic, a magnificent combination of
culture, heritage and nature, is the perfect backdrop for all the usual, but also the special and as
yet unseen types of incentive programs imbued with an autochthonous atmosphere.
For all those who, as part of incentives, want to get to know Dubrovnik's history and tradition,
there are programs such as a Renaissance dinner with music and dance in one of the fortresses, a
reception with the Rector in the Rector's Palace, a sunset cruise with an appropriate program on
the Karaka or Tirena ships, a visit to the indigenous Konavle house with a water mill and an
olive oil press or a folklore evening with traditional songs and dances.

For a wine and gourmet experience of the Dubrovnik region, tours of the nearby family
agricultural estates and tasting of local products, the Pelješac peninsula and the island of Korčula
and their vineyards, olive groves in the hinterland of the city, tasting oysters from the Bay of Mali
Ston and dinners in well-known Dubrovnik restaurants that offer the best from local suppliers
prepared in a traditional or modern manner.
If you like to include activities on land or at sea in your incentive program - Dubrovnik offers
the best of both worlds. If you want an exciting and competitive incentive, there are various
treasure hunting programs in the historical centre of the city, a ride by cable car or quad vehicles
to Srđ hill, which towers protectively over the city. In the area of ​​Dubrovnik-Neretva County
and Dubrovnik, there are many perfect locations for underwater research for all those who want
to try their hand at diving, and you can also visit the island of Lokrum in an active way with a sea
kayak. Numerous other sports activities at sea can serve as an excellent incentive or an additional
social program on warmer days.
