Says Maja Pak, MSc, Acting Director of STB with reference to commencing promotional activities within the Gulf States: “We reorganized the Slovenian Tourist Board in accordance with modern marketing trends and new contents, we successfully carried out numerous presentations to journalists, tour operators and the general public abroad, and in cooperation with the economy sector, we prepared a two-year marketing program for Slovenian tourism, which is ambitious and is, in line with trends, focused on both digital marketing and the most promising markets.”


The activities of the Slovenian Tourist Board will be mainly focused on increasing the recognisability of Slovenia as a green, active, healthy, sustainability-oriented tourist destination, promoting innovative products and stories of Slovenian tourism through market engagement programmes. To kick off the promotions in the Middle East, STO had a very successful presence at the Riyadh Travel Fair, where it participated for the first time, from April 12 – 15, 2016, and will then make a return appearance at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) to be held in Dubai from April 25 – 28, 2016. At the Arabian Travel Market STO will be launching a special valued-added travel package tailored exclusively for the Middle East market.

Another unique attraction is the ecological tourist farms, which offer a healthy living environment and certified organic food. There are more than 400 tourist farms for visitors to stay and enjoy a reconnection to the land, peace and relaxation, an opportunity to meet warm-hearted people and learn about their customs and livestock.
