The 48th Symposium of European Society of Clinical Pharmacy will be held in the Cultural and Congress venue, Cankarjev Dom, located in the very centre of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

The Cankrajev Dom Congress Centre boasts a central location at a walking distance from several hotels and the attractive Old Town. Its 22 multi- purpose halls and function rooms and a maximum plenary capacity of 2,000 delegates make it the largest purpose-built congress centre in Slovenia with auditorium-style seating and an established venue on the international conference market. The CD Congress Centre features a well-conceived design aligned with contemporary functional and aesthetic criteria as well as extraordinary acoustic properties of its halls designed by a prominent Slovenian architect, Edvard Ravnikar.

Ljubljana lies halfway between Vienna and Venice, at the crossroads of different cultures, geographical regions, and historical developments. Its location within a convenient two-hour flight from almost all major European airports makes it an easily accessible destination.

Ljubljana is renowned for its relaxed atmosphere, reminiscent both of the Mediterranean and Central Europe, and is well-known as an extremely picturesque and green city. Particularly the historical city centre is full of outstanding architecture, a medley of styles from different periods in history, most notably the Baroque, bound together into one of the 20th century's most amazing total works of art by the famous Ljubljana-born architect and urban planner Jože Plečnik.


Ljubljana has the advantage of being a compact and relatively small city whose two conference centres, numerous conference hotels, and special venues are located right in the city centre. As the distances between the chosen conference venue and other locations used during the conference can easily be covered on foot, conference organizers like to point out that Ljubljana is easily navigable and logistically simple.

For the second consecutive year, the Ljubljana Tourism survey on habits, expenditures and expectations of congress delegates has shown that participants of international association and other business meetings are among the most desirable visitors in our city due to many multiplying effects and considerably higher expenditure. 

The ongoing commitment to sustainability and a number of high-profile international accolades, including the prestigious title of European Green Capital 2016 and being ranked as one of the Global Top 100 Sustainable Destinations 2017 for the five consecutive time, make Ljubljana a destination whose overall tourist development has been carefully planned and well thought-out.


Slovenia is a fairly new meetings and incentive destination and one that is steadily making its mark on the global meetings industry map, as it is certainly a country that has a lot to offer and stands out from other destinations in many, many ways. Firstly is the fact that it is the only country in Europe that can offer the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain and the Karst region all in one package, which in itself makes Slovenia a destination really worth exploring. Then there is the often neglected yet very important human factor that is another huge aspect of the country’s allure – Slovenians are energetic, hard-working and reliable people who add a ‘personal touch’ to everything they do. Their genuine hospitality and warmth has a worldwide renown, as does their positive attitude of always preferring to look on the bright side of life. For Slovenians, being from a small European country is a boon rather than a hindrance, as because they have had to compete with the industry’s bigger players they have learned how to work harder, better and more efficiently.

On top of all this is the Slovenian gastronomic offer that is also truly exceptional, with its wide-ranging cuisine influenced by the diversity of the Slovenian landscape, the climate, its history and its neighbouring cultures. Today there are at least 170 recognised and typical dishes to choose from – right from the delightful appetisers through to a fine selection of mouth-watering desserts and everything in between – and the list is growing every day through Slovenia’s vibrant gastronomic scene. Accompanying such great fare is the excellent range of Slovenian wines, with many wine experts rating Slovenian wine-growing areas amongst the very best in the world.
