The Story of B2B Messe:
A few years ago, when Slovenian and Austrian companies met in Bleiburg (Pliberk), the idea was born to organise an annual meeting of companies from Austria and abroad in Bleiburg. The first business meeting in 2017 took place between members of the Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Bleiburg Feistritz, the Pliberk Cultural Centre, agent Silvo Kumer and Slovenian companies represented by agent Marcelino.
This is how the name of the event B2B messe was developed, where business opportunities on the Austrian market are sought during business meetings.
In the following years, the list of companies grew longer and companies from other countries also joined. The local business association Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Bleiburg Feistritz is a well-known organiser of local trade fairs in Pliberk for end buyers, and the Pliberk Cultural Centre hosts the meetings.
We have therefore decided that the organisation of the international business fair B2B Messe will be taken over by the newly founded company Vakbit and the Pliberk House of Culture as the successor of the B2B fair in Pliberk as of 2021, as the primary objective of the Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Bleiburg Feistritz is to ensure the fair representation of local companies or members of the association.
VAKBIT OÜ thus covers international companies and marketing outside Austria attending the fair, while KULTURNI DOM PLIBERK organises the fair in Austria and takes care of Austrian companies.
In 2021, we have organised a high-profile international fair and we are confident that it will be even more successful in 2022.
