Dubrovnik

‘”Those who seek paradise on earth”, the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw mused, “should come to Dubrovnik.” Like thousands before and since, he was enthralled by the sheer beauty of the city’s imposing ramparts, sacred architecture and fascinating landscape. These days, the city is also home to an international airport, numerous hotels and an amazing array of events venues large and small. With a mild climate and some of the Mediterranean’s most exciting incentive options, it’s time to see what Dubrovnik can offer.

Valamar Lacroma and Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik

Recognised as Croatia’s Leading Business Hotel for three years running, Valamar Lacroma is located on the tranquil Babin Kuk peninsula, a beautiful area of pine forests and white pebble beaches just 10 minutes from Dubrovnik’s famous old town.

With capacity for 950 delegates, the luxurious Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik combines modern architectural design and a relaxing atmosphere to bring a sense of sophistication to meetings and events of all sizes.
