Gastronomy is an essential part of every meeting & event destination. Consequently, most of social events, meetings, incentive experiences, and other kinds of events are based around food and beverages. In Slovenia, we’ve got you covered! Be inspired by these tasty event ideas created by our member Intours DMC.
With Slovenia as an incentive destination, we always get the same response from clients: the ones that don’t know the destination yet, don’t know anything about it. The ones that know the destination or have visited Slovenia, simply love it – they often come back for personal vacations after incentive events or fam trips. Slovenia is becoming more and more popular, yet it is still far from being crowded. It’s mostly known for its lush nature, amazing rivers, lakes and mountains. Our fascinating natural and cultural heritage, broad selection of hospitality capacities and meeting venues, world-famous cuisine, outstanding wines, authenticity, pleasant climate, variety of experiences and, not least, the friendly and industrious people, make up the pillars of the Slovenia Meetings programme.
In 3 hours, you will cross the whole country by car
Slovenia is an incentive heaven for groups that prefer extremely short distances, great variety in landscape, rich history, green and eco mindset, fresh locally prepared cuisine and a unique mix of Alpine and Mediterranean. Positioned in the middle of Europe, it has 59 major rivers, 321 lakes and a beautiful forest, that covers 66 % of its territory. That makes it perfect for sport and adrenaline activities, such as rafting, kayaking, canyoning, hiking, climbing or cycling. And the best part – from landing at the Brnik airport, you need 20 min to the capital or 30 min to lake Bled, where to Julian Alps start.
