General Questions

Best Stay event was invented, and is organised by PROPER EVENTS AND RESEARCH – you can check out more information and our other projects on our website here. We have experience in producing events since 2007 all over the world, from New Zealand to the UK, including working on events which took place in London, Prague, Krakow, Istanbul, Budapest, Berlin, Barcelona, Johannesburg, Dallas, Dubai… We are based in Croatia and Best Stay is our main flagship event for the South-Eastern European region, focusing on creating the best possible guest experience as a key event for hotels in the region who want to reach the very top and stay there. Our events are informative, interactive and fun, based on quality research from the target audience, and the results can be seen through the feedback of our attendees.

Each attendee will need to have an EU Digital COVID Certificate. For more information, please click here. To check out the list of all locations on the island of Krk where it is possible to perform PCR and BAT testing on COVID-19, please click here.

We are taking care that all our speakers and attendees are as safe as they can be during the event. During the event, we will be implementing strategies to encourage behaviours that reduce the spread of COVID-19 among staff and attendees. Therefore the location is in the open air, all speakers and attendees will be spaced out to keep social distance (at the minimum of 1.5m), masks will be available for each attendee at the entrance, disinfectants will be available at several points in the location, frequent cleaning of surfaces will take place, hand shaking will be avoided at all times, if any speaker or attendee is feeling unwell or has a fever on the day of the event, they will be asked not to attend, and everyone will be contacted should we receive information after the event that one or more of the attendees was found to be Covid-19 positive.

Best Stay 2021 event will be held at Hotel Maritim, island Krk. For more information about the venue, please click here.

We have secured a few accommodation options for Best Stay attendees at special event prices. For all information visit accommodation page.
