THE 5th SPE BALKAN SKI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2024, SKI CENTER ROGLA, SLOVENIA
FROM 17 TO 21 MARCH 2024

Dear colleagues and friends,

With great pleasure we invite you to join us at the 5th Scientific Conference SPE BALKAN SKI.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to move the organization of the conference from Romania to Slovenia. Considering the agreed conditions and possibilities offered by SKI Center Rogla, we are sure that with new energy we will organize an even better and unforgettable event. Our motto is to make every congress better, update and advance in all aspects, according to the vision, mission, and goals of SPE Balkan SKI. And by developing a network of excellence that brings together ski experts - ski instructors, coaches, scientists, and other ski experts from all over the world - we want to share with you the beauty of Balkan ski resorts.
We are inviting you to participate in the SPE BALKAN SKI Conference that will be held on March 17th to 21st 2024 at Rogla Ski Center, Slovenia. After successfully organized former SPE BALKAN SKI Conferences is our immense pleasure to organize fifth Scientific Conference SPE BALKAN SKI at Slovenian mountain Rogla.
The fact that the Rogla conference planned for 2020 has been cancelled for the reasons given by COVID-19 gives us extra energy and determination to make this year's conference very special.
Book your dates now and we will contact you again soon with more information.
