Conference Organization

We organize or host scientific one-day conferences, local, national, European and international conferences, at the initiative of the OAC or in cooperation with universities, organizations, ecclesiastical or other local and international bodies.

Great emphasis is placed on conference tourism, which is growing at a fast pace and is an important part of our activities.

Conference tourism requires a high level of services and actively contributes to improving the overall quality of our region.
