The National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro is showcasing its tourism products at the largest trade fair for events and incentive travel in Frankfurt.
According to the 2019 Destination Report by PRO SKY, a German international corporation specialising in MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) destination evaluation, Montenegro was voted among the top 8 MICE destinations for 2019. The evaluation was made by 450 convention industry professionals from all around Europe.
Interest in Montenegro with regard to this tourism segment is growing continuously. Based on the events organised and contracted so far, an increase of at least 10% is expected by the end of the year compared to the previous year.
During the three days of this fair, over a hundred meetings were held at Montenegro’s stand with event management companies from the source markets of Germany, Russia, Poland, UK, France, United States and many more. The meetings were used to showcase the offering and opportunities for organising events in Montenegro.

The fair brought together about 14,000 business visitors, including 3,500 exhibitors from 160 countries.
