An incentive is a popular tool to motivate and reward the employees of a company or its clients. As a planned activity it seeks to create and encourage relationships among employees or to reward a job well done. 

The diversity of incentive ideas presented below show why visiting Ljubljana in the post-pandemic times will be fun, worthwhile and will focus on cherishing what we’ve been missing the most this year – genuinity, spontaneity and local culture and values.

Never heard of it? Disc golf is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target. It is played using rules similar to golf. It is usually played on a course with 9 or 18 holes. Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee area toward a target, throwing again from where the previous throw landed, until the target is reached. In the past couple of years it has become increasingly popular also in Slovenia and Ljubljana, where you can play it in the Stožice arena. It’s always the right time to try something new, isn’t it?

This virtual city tour will take you on a walk through the city’s Old Town and, to make it more fun, the streets will have turned into a virtual art gallery with the hidden art pictures illustrated by the young Slovenian artist Veronika Burger. If you want a quick informative get-to-know of Ljubljana, this is something you should start with, especially if it’s still impossible for you to phisically travel.

This unique experience will inspire unity and cooperation by transforming the team into a string orchestra in less than two hours. With every minute as a new classical musicians, participants will grow more confident and will soon play the whole song.

When there’s will, there’s a way!

… is coming soon! Ljubljana’s commitment to sustainability is well-known (the city holds the Green Capital of Europe 2016 award) but this tour will go deeper as it will try to show all the important Ljubljana attractions from a truly ecological perspective. It will introduce places that pulsate with interdisciplinary approach to sustainability, combining urban planning, geography, arts, science and local initiatives. The tour was created in collaboration with Focus, the association for sustainable development, and Sabina Čarman, a Slovenian zero-waste entrepreneur and blogger.
