The city of Split has an impressive, seventeen centuries long history, that together with the city’s natural charm and its friendly people, make Split a great destination for MICE events. In the heart of the old town lies the lively ancient palace of Emperor Diocletian that is protected by the UNESCO and the seaside promenade ‘Riva’ lined with trendy cafes and shops. This vibrant and bustling spot on the Adriatic coast is at its finest in the spring and summer months, when travellers from all over the world come to enjoy the beautiful sea, the numerous nearby islands and towns, local culture and vibrant night-life.
Split is an ideal place for incentive, team building, conference and special group events (VIP groups, meetings, CSR, agricultural and ecological programmes and more) as the city has quality hotels with adequate meeting spaces, excellent venues and restaurants and diverse activities to entertain your Clients. Split has plenty to offer on its own or in combination with another coastal city such as Trogir, Šibenik or Zadar, the nearby islands of Šolta, Brač, Hvar or Vis, the hinterland locations such as ranches and farms, nature preservation areas like Krka National Park or the neighbouring country Bosnia and Herzegovina, that is less than 2 hours away by coach.
Split offers a variety of hotels for the conference and the meeting industry as well as numerous boutique hotels that are ideal for incentive groups. DK Events works closely with all the hotels in Split and we can recommend the best option for your group whether you are looking for a luxury hotel, a resort, a boutique hotel or the best budget option.
There are several hotel projects in the works as well so in the next few years we can expect that the hotel scene in Split will be even stronger with the likes of big names such as the Marriott due to open in 2020 and the complete renovations of Hotels Marjan and Ambassador which are located in prime locations in the old town.
You will be spoilt with choice when it comes to activities in Split and its surrounding areas. A biking or a segway tour around the Split city centre and the Marjan Park Forest is a great way to explore the city in a more interactive way. For those preferring a leisurely stroll, a city tour with wine and olive oil tasting is always popular as well as Game of Thrones themed city tour that also combines a visit to the Klis Fortress.
Split is located close to the beautiful islands of Šolta, Brač, Hvar and Vis and DK Events offers many island exploring activities on board exclusive sailboats, catamarans, speedboats or Dalmatian traditional wooden boats as well as other water activities such as kayaking, jet skiing and scuba diving.
All those wishing to venture out into Split’s hinterland can enjoy river rafting or a canoe safari on the Cetina River or an off-road jeep safari followed by a relaxing lunch by the river. Alternatively, why not head out for a day trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina and visit the historic towns of Počitelj and Mostar for something completely different.
A city rally, treasure hunt or James Bond challenge are all fun team building activities that allow you to explore the city at the same time. For those wishing to spend time by the beach, a boat building competition, beach Olympics or beach volleyball are just some of the team building activities that can be offered.
DK Events’ specialty are tailor made activities. Depending on your group briefing and preference, we are able to create completely unique activities for your Client.
In the past few years, Split has developed into a true gastronomic destination with a continually booming restaurant scene that offers diverse local and international cuisine.
For gala dinners, Split offers many unique venues such as the Cellars of the 3rd century Diocletian Palace that can be used to stage an exquisite gala dinner or a reception. Then, there is the beautiful Villa Dalmatia with its perfect atrium and garden by the sea, and just outside the city centre ensuring a more private setting. We have also staged our gala dinners in galleries, museums, clubs, parks, concert arenas, ships, fortresses, town squares, etc. With our creativity and enthusiasm, we can design any space into the custom-made gala dinner you desire.
