Floating Conference Centre On Croatian Coast

Conference organisers around the world looking for a swanky and exotic venue may soon be able to select Croatia. Davor Stern, a former Croatian government Minister and businessmen, plans to build a floating conference hall on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, writes Lider magazine.

The floating conference centre, which will seat 2,000 people, is expected to set back Stern and investors around 20 million euros.

“The costs are lower than they would be if we built it on land. We have applied to the Ministry of Tourism for funding, and we will seek domestic investment, and also apply for funding from European structural funds, ” said Stern, adding that even though the project is unlikely to be ready for the upcoming tourist season.

Stern also says that the centre has attracted plenty of interest as it may also be used as a floating nightclub or a venue for concerts.
