HelmsBriscoe Expanding its Network in Slovenia


Slovenia is very proud of having Slovenian global accounts manager in a well known global company HelmsBriscoe, Mrs Vesna Lešnik. Vesna’s extensive experience in the hospitality industry began more than 20 years ago. In 2015 she decided to embark on an independent path and join the excellent HelmsBriscoe team, allowing her to work in an international environment and share the knowledge she gained from years of professional work, traveling and learning about new cultures.

1. Vesna, what can Slovenia offer HelmsBriscoe?
Slovenia has numerous excellent locations, providers yet to be discovered by world’s MICE industry. From event hotels, special venues, unusual locations, old towns to unspoiled nature (mountains, coast, lakes), superior vineyards and culinary surprises…

Quality of services, culinary diversity, fabulous nature and above all – genuine hospitality of the Slovenian people are reasons to be taken into consideration for future HelmsBriscoe events. Slovenia is always a nice surprise for guests coming here for the first time. My colleagues in hospitality industry are all very warm, charming and hardworking, always prepared to accommodate any guest’s whish – often beyond »standard« level of services clients are expecting.

2. What benefits can Slovenia expect from HelmsBriscoe and how do you think this cooperation will reflect on the Slovenian MICE industry?
HelmsBriscoe is trusted by more organizations with their site selection needs than any other firm in the world. This information alone guarantees that Slovenia will definitely be in »final« selection of locations more often. But is on Slovenian MICE industry to be »more visible« on world’s map as well. Of course I’ll do my best to encourage my colleagues to present themselves and Slovenia in best way possible. I’m positive that HelmsBriscoe presence will bring new events in next years, but Slovenia must learn how to compete on ever changing global market as well – here HelmsBriscoe is the right partner for way forward.

“We are delighted that Vesna Lesnik has joined HelmsBriscoe, representing the region of Slovenia. Vesna will assist our team in continuing to develop a dynamic HB presence in Central and Eastern Europe in order to deliver unmatched service and destination knowledge to our Clients.

Slovenia is still growing as a MICE destination, but they offer great quality, prices and an array of possibilities for organizing a variety of business events. Having a local specialist like Vesna, with extensive first-hand knowledge of the product and destination of Slovenia, provides both our Clients and colleagues with added value and global knowledge.” stated Sylvie Marquès, Managing Director, Southern Europe, HelmsBriscoe
