PASSION AND INSPIRATION IN BUSINESS

Best 4 Businesses or Bisnode for Business

Bisnode organises probably the most passionate and inspiring business event in Slovenia, Best 4 Businesses or Bisnode for Business. And they have been preparing it annually since 2012, every year with a greater enthusiasm. The concept of the event is simple - they want to inspire participants, relax them and mostly give them positive examples - that everything is possible and that restrictions are only in themselves.

Back in 2012 when the event was organized for the first time, they said their expectations were very high from the beginning. And after the event had been finished, the satisfaction of participants regarding the content of the event, of its realization and location was above all expectations. There were around 350 participants in the first year, and for next five years they recorded more than 500 participants each year. Moreover - quite a few people had to remain on the waiting list.

There is always a lot of communication, coordination and simultaneous challenge-solving in the phase of the preparation for the event. Bisnode strives to add something new each year. And they say the delivered service in Brdo Congress Centre was always at the level of excellence.

Mrs. Aleksandra Brank, Marketing Director in Bisnode Southern Markets, said: “In addition to the content and concept of the event, location and foremost superior service of the personnel in the Brdo Congress Centre plays a very important role. It is not just our observations, but mainly feedback from our customers or participants - those who attend the event every year, because they are always positively impressed with the entire execution.

As an organizer, you simply know that the personnel at Brdo will handle every situation. And the best thing about all this is, that in the morning on the day of the event, you can go to the event relaxed and full of expectations. You simply know that everything will go as it should, or even better, with some additional positive surprise. At Brdo we have always received excellent support, performance, and above all, we have established a great relationship. And when you combine all the above, we can begin to talk about loyalty. And here is the answer to the question, why is it so nice to return each year; and even more, we are increasing our activities at Brdo.”

Mrs. Brank also added a short anecdote that illustrates the extra effort of the Brdo staff: Since our event took place in the autumn, we wanted to entertain the participants with some roasted chestnuts, served in conical shaped paper. We were wondering how to implement the service of chestnuts for some time, but Brdo staff came up with a flawless solution. As we found out later, one of the Brdo chefs made a special stand for the chestnuts out of wood by himself especially for this occasion, with his ingenuity and joinery ability. Remarkable.”

Thousands of stories, trapped between the castle walls …

Our guests, Mrs. Urška and Mr. Marko, kindly wrote an impressions of being "The Lord of the castle for one night". We gladly share those words with you: » Strmol Castle is not a hotel. Strmol Castle is an experience to remember forever. And you want it back. Again and again. My wife and I stayed in hundreds of small charming historic hotels, but only Strmol Castle is unique and unrepeatable. It takes you back, to the time of the last owners, Rado and Ksenija Hribar and you just forget the present ... At the time, when architects were changing historic buildings beyond recognition, the Strmol Castle remained the same. Unteachable. A castle that has a soul. And as if this was not enough, there are Jerca, Irena, Branka, Andrej, Damir and Blaž. Without them, we would be lost in the past. They had read every wish of ours from our eyes. Their smiles, their kindness and their professional, but still human perfection, made us feel like we were living in a time that is long gone. Oh, what a great experience is to be "The Lord of the castle for one night" at the Strmol castle. «

Many of the advantages of the vast Brdo Estate were best described through the words of one of our clients - Husqvarna, the global leader in outdoor power products, who has organized a big presentation of their products on the Brdo Estate recently:

„We are looking for suitable locations for our events, that we organize for our business partners, every year. We are quite demanding costumer, because we need huge outside areas, which offer possibility to test our machines for landscaping.

Brdo Estate certanly fulfilled these conditions – there were enough surfaces for our activities, even though we had three days long event and new customers every day. Flexibility of the employees of Brdo Estate was really impeccable.

In addition to the outside surfaces, big indoor halls are very important for our events as well. Congress centre Brdo has several of them to choose from. Modern design of congress centre, beautiful estate and excelent cuisine have astonished us and our guests. Especially guests from Austria, who were here for the first time, are happy to remember this event.

can be youthful, dynamic and different

Flexibility and diversity for all tastes

Best described by the words of our client Red Orbit themself:

"In 2016 we were looking for a conference venue for the largest inOrbit to date and the bar was set very high. We wanted a place where we can fit our massive 12 meter presentation screens, a stage for the speakers, comfortable seating for 500+ guests and we wanted the guest to know and feel that they are at a premium marketing event.

After reviewing many possibilities we decided for Brdo congress center and we could not have made a better choice. The beautiful estate, the modern and exquisite conference center and the delicious food made for a fantastic conference venue. With a lot of custom wishes, special objects (table footballs, ornamental dixie toilet!, sofas, snack racks and a huge plastic box/room) we need to place around the venue and a lot of last minute additions to the conference, Brdo's staff was also very accommodating and helpful in piecing inOrbit 2016 together.

Conference venue grades were through the roof and we believe it's thanks to the choice of the venue and the atmosphere in addition to the lectures that inOrbit 2016 was such a big success. I guess it's no wonder we're going back for a second year. And we're all looking forward to it."

WINTER SPECTACLE AND ENTERTAMENT

Magic of the night

BMW Night of Excellence at the Brdo Estate

Last winter a special evening took place at the magic Brdo Estate, where BMW Group Slovenia has organized gala event for all its employees.

More than 200 guests were welcomed with cocktails at the astonishing ice-bar outside the Brdo Congress Centre, surrounded with ice sculptures, that even emphasised the magic of the night.

Big opening was presented by stuntman on motorbike, who demonstrated bold mastery on the engine and made the guests hold their breath. Additional effect of spectacle was achieved with fireworks that painted a winter night in bright colours. 

After that the attractive programme followed inside the largest hall Grandis. The highlight of the evening was when the sheets were lifted of the two of the latest models of BMW cars and introduced to the enthusiastic audience.

Parking of two cars inside the hall was the most challenging part of the evening for the organizing team which was achieved flawlessly by the extremely professional and helpful team of Brdo. 

The event offered an exceptional culinary and entertaining experience to all the participants as well. In the remainder of the evening employees enjoyed the informal gathering exchanging impressions about the magical evening, the live musical accompaniment, casual fun games and a relaxed chat.

Thus it was proved once again that Brdo is the most desirable location for such meetings.
