In bed with the storytellers of Crossover 2020

“Just like bedtime stories that we used to listen to as children, every event creates and shares its own story. A well-told story is an event where the narrator and the listener meet, where the participant and the speaker form a personal bond.”

Before you come to Conventa Crossover, a hybrid conference for everyone, who wants to learn, socialize and exchange ideas in an informal, relaxed environment, the organisers wanted you to meet the speakers (or storytellers as they like to call them). Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Ljubljana on 27 August 2020, you can join the conference virtually.

Ivo J. Franschitz

Owner & Managing Director of ­ENITED Business Events

Q: How are we going to organize events in the future?

Hopefully with the same and necessary professionalism. Probably with a better understanding of the bigger role our business events & live com industry can and should play on the Mar/Com playing field. Definitely in new & innovative ways and formats.

Q: What is your love story with the world of events?

It’s the people element. I am in love with starting, building and driving meaningful business relationships. It’s the “wild” knowledge I am curious about.

Q: What do you love about your job the most?

Meeting & working with people. “Teamwork makes the dream work.” I know it’s an old proverb, but I still like it.

Q: In your opinion, what is live marketing’s best advantage vs online?

The Human factor of engagement, interaction & emotion, right there and right now.

Q: What are you bringing to Conventa Crossover?

As always, my curiosity and my energy to engage. 

Good friends of mine describe it differently. They say I talk too much!

Q: What do you expect from the event? 

Interesting conversations, some “Aha”-moments and good fun.

Q: Why should an attendee not miss your session?

  • Because of my Styrian accent?
  • Because we will have good & meaningful conversations.
  • Because I want to learn from the session participants.
