Vilnius Business Intelligence Report: Future of Meetings in Knowledge Economy


The Vilnius Convention Bureau (a part of Go Vilnius), together with Meetings International magazine, has recently launched the Vilnius Business Intelligence Report.


The Business Intelligence Report provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the current business climate in Vilnius, and also sets out the ambitious plans driving the sectors that are quickly establishing Lithuania’s capital as a knowledge and innovation hub. Included among the feature stories covering the Life Science, Nanotechnology, FinTech and Game Development industries are interviews with Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Simasius, Go Vilnius Director Darius Udrys, and Head of the Vilnius Convention Bureau’s Director Jolanta Beniuliene.


The report reinforces the fact that Vilnius is poised for growth and has a strategy in place to encourage and support this growth. Part of this involves sharing the Vilnius experience with others and creating a pull by showcasing success stories and testimonials, as well as the benefits of working and living in the city.


One such success story impacting across sectors in Vilnius by attracting individuals and businesses to experience the city is CONVENE. The report maintains that, “Over the past five years, CONVENE has transformed Vilnius into a regional knowledge and networking hub for the meetings industry and a focal point for the development of their own.” As such, the annual event has become a powerful platform for the development of business and intellectual capital, supporting key sectors and strengthening the Vilnius brand.


Commenting on CONVENE’s role as a major player in the Baltic Region’s meetings and events industry, Jolanta Beniuliene says, “The Vilnius Convention Bureau’s work is currently focused on driving the growth of international events and supporting our city’s key sectors. As a result, we serve as facilitators by helping international meeting planners establish partnerships with local actors within these sectors. This includes helping them identify local associations, government partners, academia, and research centres, among others.”


The Vilnius Business Intelligence Report is available online.
