Venue and Accommodation

Europe’s most sought after conference destinations. With its UNESCO World Heritage listed sites, mild climate all year round and direct flights from over 50 large international airports, it is an ideal place to merge business and comfort.

Sitting proudly on the calm blue waters of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is one of the world's most magnificent fortified cities and without doubt currently one of Europe’s most fashionable destinations.

Dubrovnik is the main filming location in Croatia for King’s Landing, a fictional city in Game of Thrones, the famous television series based on the series of fantasy novels “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin and distributed by HBO. For those who have seen the series and are passionate about it, a visit to Dubrovnik will become a beautiful déjà vu because of the way in which it was so well integrated into the setting of the series.

Since 1979 the town has been under UNESCO protection. Steeped in history and virtually unchanged since the 13th Century the old quarter provides a fascinating distraction from the everyday business. The city is a living museum and a live stage, and has an ideal connection between its historical past and the modern day. It is surrounded by medieval walls that are 1940 meters long and are preserved in their original form. Dubrovnik is a wonderful pocket of the globe that still provide us with unique snapshots of the past.


Conference is taking place in the Business center of the Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik Hotel, the proud recipient of the prestigious 2013, 2015 and 2016 World Travel Award as "Croatia's Leading Hotel" and the 2014, 2015 and the 2016 World Travel Award as "Croatia's Leading Business Hotel".

The Valamar Lacroma is located on the tranquil Babin Kuk peninsula 15 minutes from the old town and 250m from the beach. Ultra modern, luxurious Ragusa Spa centre, pools, extensive MICE facilities.

For ELMI participants we have pre-reserved a certain number of hotel rooms in hotel Valamar Lacroma.
