MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions)

There are optimal conditions for organizing conferences and business meetings in Thrace. The region has well-equipped halls and luxury accommodation. Transport accessibility also has a positive impact. Plovdiv Airport has the potential to accommodate international flights. It is only an hour and a half by car from Sofia Airport to the western part of the region (Plovdiv and Pazardzhik), as well as from the Bourgas airport to the eastern part of the region (Yambol and Stara Zagora). In the heart of Thrace are Dimitrovgrad and Haskovo, where there are also various opportunities for organizing business events. It should be remembered that Plovdiv is an international fair town with a century-old history, and in the field of agriculture, Stara Zagora is emerging as an important center for outdoor exhibitions, using its old airport. The proximity to Europe’s largest airport near Istanbul is also a prerequisite for welcoming guests from all over the world. The forums are also organized in places with well-developed spa services such as the Stara Zagora Mineral Baths and Mineralni bani Municipality near Haskovo, as well as in the newly established centers for gambling in Svilengrad, located near the border with Greece and Turkey.
