Perched on Croatia's northern Adriatic Coast, the Istrian peninsula regularly attracts a leisure crowd who come for its white-pebble beaches and warm, aquamarine waters. However the region is also a popular destination for corporate breaks, meetings and conferences, with a number of conference hotels offering modern facilities such as high-speed WiFi and meeting rooms.

Mix Business with Cultural Attractions in Pula
Overlooking the Adriatic on Istria's southwest tip, Pula is a bustling city with a fascinating Roman history. If you have some spare time between meetings you can visit the old town to learn more about the region's ancient beginnings. Don't miss the imposing 2nd-century BC Arena, which is widely regarded as one the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world. Or head to Fazana and Premantura beaches on the Pula Riveria and try sea kayaking, snorkelling or windsurfing.
Istria Conference Hotels in Poreč and Umag
Poreč on Istria's western stretch also offers a good selection of three- and four-star conference hotels, mainly in the bustling Zelena Laguna and Plava Laguna areas. Most have well-equipped meeting rooms and free WiFi, as well as outdoor pools and tennis courts for downtime.
There are also conference accommodation options in Umag, a quiet fishing port with a charming old town. Many of its narrow, cobbled streets are lined with buildings that date back to the Venetian Empire.
