Aleš Hozdecký Appointed New Managing Director of Prague Convention Bureau

Aleš Hozdecký has been appointed new managing director of Prague Convention Bureau. Three out of the eighteen candidates who applied for the position were shortlisted for the second round which took place on Thursday 31 July. PCB’s Board of Directors then elected Aleš Hozdecký as the most suitable candidate.

Aleš Hozdecký has extensive experience in the tourism sector. He previously worked, for example, as the Head of the Department of Tourism in Turnov, Chairman and Director of the Bohemian Paradise Association; he also participated in the management of the Association of Tourist Regions of the Czech Republic (ATUR). From August 2011 to March 2014, he was director of the Tourism Department of the Ministry of Regional Development.

Aleš Hozdecký will start his position with Prague Convention Bureau on 18 August, thus replacing current managing director Lenka Žlebková. She is leaving the association after four successful years when, due to Prague Convention Bureau’s activities, Prague as the congress destination again strengthened its position in the international market. Her work in PCB has been crowned by Prague’s successful candidacy for the ICCA Congress which will take place in 2017.

Lenka Žlebková continues to work in the field of tourism; from September she will start working in Hotel & Garden U Holubů in Čeladná, a popular recreation area in the foothills of Beskydy Mountains, North Moravia, which has recently experienced a big boom and is especially famous for its surroundings and one of the most beautiful golf courses in the Czech Republic. Her decision to return to her native region was driven by the need to fulfil her dream of running her own business and spend more time with her family.
