Conference Organization

We organize or co-organize 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.

Throughout the duration of a conference, the OAC staff is at the disposal of the conference organizers from the stage of its design until its completion.
