From Exit to Hartefact to BEMUS to BITEF, Serbia is home to a range of awesome events that showcase the best of Serbian culture and contribute dynamically to the country’s tourism officering. Serbia Creates envisages that, through these kinds of events, Serbia can:

• Position itself as one of the world’s leading event destinations;
• Be internationally known to host events of global excellence;
• Be recognised for its diversity and quality of events, regardless of size;
• Demonstrate the economic and social impacts of events;
• Create opportunities for events and the events industry to progress from “good” to “great”; and
• To develop/create or attract new events, conferences & congresses that contribute to the national strategy.
