Slovenia – Why not as an incentive destination? For many of you Slovenia is perceived as an emerging destination. Despite the country is member of the EU for more than a decade and having EURO as the currency for more than 7 years. Slovenia is also part of the Schengen agreement. It is amazing what a small country in size brings to the table. Statement from incentive organiser Ms Geraldine Huybrechts from Borealis Belgium, twice Site Crystal Award Winner: “A destination to discover!”

Miha Kovačič Director of Slovenian Convention Bureau

New incentive centre of Europe When the Editorial Board of Kongres magazine in 2008 published first Tips for Incentives for Ljubljana and the region of Central Slovenia, it contained 70 attractive programs. The Book, which is in front of you presents over 100 attractive programs which are hard to find anywhere in Europe. Slovenia is full of interesting incentive destinations that have developed a counterweight to the congress “factories”. A growing number of organizers wants new, authentic experiences in contact with nature and culture and with elements of “edutainment”. We are pleased to note that innovations are complemented by the superb culinary experience that is not always measured by Michelin stars, but by quality and sincere concern for the guest. In addition, the main factor of surprises is the atmosphere created by the surroundings, nature, cultural heritage which evokes sense of familiarity and prestige. Some peculiarities of global phenomena are also in the region such as events in the bosom of the Postojna Cave. Slovenian event organizers can still afford to pamper each participant. The new luxury is authentic and from the view of congress participants very much experienced story. Organizers connect with participants in a way that makes it very difficult to say goodbye when leaving. Creating boutique events is demanding, but richly rewarded journey. Enjoy the journey through Incentive Slovenia. Gorazd Čad Editor-in-Chief of Kongres Magazine
