Fredi Fontanot, Acting Director of the Slovenian Convention Bureau

The Slovenian Convention Bureau is pleased to announce the appointment of Fredi Fontanot as our new acting director from the 1st August 2022.

The beginning of August marks another milestone for the Slovenian Convention Bureau as it’s welcoming a new acting director: Fredi Fontanot. Tadeja Pivc Coudyser concluded her mission after a few months at the Bureau. We heartfully thank Tadeja for her work over the past months at the Bureau and extend a warm welcome to Fredi.

Fredi is a well-known face in the meetings industry, especially after his previous role in the Tourist Board Portorož, where he has been in charge of MICE activities since 2017. His knowledge and expertise will contribute to the goals of the Slovenian Convention Bureau, as he will strive to attract international meetings to Slovenia. Fredi’s vision is to further develop competencies and facilitate innovation to ensure Slovenia’s meetings industry reaches its full social and economic potential given the right support.

“It is an honour to take on such an important position as Acting Director of the Slovenian Convention Bureau. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity. I will do my utmost to ensure that we, together with the members of the association, actively participate to achieve all set goals and that, in addition to the many, already established activities of the Bureau, successfully use all the economic and social potentials that our industry possesses. We will do our best to provide the convention bureau with the status, support and reputation that it deserves. As is appropriate for the times, we will continue to think more and more boutique, green, active and, above all, sustainable. The key products we will use to promote Slovenia as a destination for business travel remain: business meetings, events and incentive travel, where Slovenia’s unique 5-star experiences play an important role.” stated Fredi Fontanot.

The activities of the Slovenian Convention Bureau will continue to promote the visibility and international presence of Slovenia as a boutique, green, active, healthy, and sustainable destination for the organization of meetings, events and incentive experiences.

We wish Fredi the best of luck and success during his first one-year term!
