We’re a green county. Our cities have rich culture and human scale and our countryside has mountains, forests, rivers and lakes. Our food and wine compare with the best. We’re the perfect haven, an awesome place to escape to. But we’re on your doorstep, right in the middle of Europe. We’re a young country, and new to MICE, so most attendees haven’t been here before. This makes Slovenia appealing for today’s delegates who crave something new, different, off-the-beaten track. My job as Executive Director of The Slovenian Convention Bureau is to bring more meetings and events to Slovenia. I came to this role after 10 years in hotels and MICE agencies so I know about buyer expectations for meetings and events. We have over 60 active members in our Bureau from all over Slovenia including hotels, small and large venues, restaurants and the full spectrum of agencies - DMCs, PCOs, team building, experiential etc We know the importance and value of partnership because MICE events are only truly successful when the entire destination community all works together in support of the clients’ objectives.
