Why Slovenia might be your new favorite incentive place
by DMC Slovenia
Slovenia is not a country one hears a lot about. It is probably the EU’s least-known country. It lives a pretty quiet life among its more famous neighbors Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary.
For an incentive it is always harder to choose a destination that you don’t know much about, where your friends haven’t already been, and where you don’t have many expectations. But on the other hand, classic destinations are declining in our business. Clients don’t want to have incentives or events where everyone has already been. They are looking for less explored destinations that are attractive. And this is how Slovenia is usually discovered.
Situated in the heart of Europe, Slovenia is a boutique country between short but idyllic stretch of Mediterranean coastline, Pannonian Plain (rich in healthy water springs), high Alpine peaks, and mysterious Karst (with more than 11,000 karst caves). Its environment is made for anyone who appreciates pure nature and who likes to tackle the great outdoors. If Conde Nast described it as a fairy tale setting and Lonely Planet as an unexpected revelation, we are sure you will like it, too.
As a local DMC, Slovenia is in the end our home, we can proudly say that it is one of the most diverse countries in Europe. And what’s also very important is that everything is quickly accessible. It is no fun to spend time driving, so incentive planners are searching for destinations, where clients can experience many different activities and sceneries in a short period of time. In this case, Slovenia is perfect. For example, it is possible to have a great outdoor mountain activity in the morning, lunch in the capital city of Ljubljana, underground cave trekking in the afternoon and end the day at the seaside.
In Slovenia there are also many special experiences that one cannot get anywhere else in the world. You can have dinner in a cable car, there is an open-air spa in the salt pans, we have the best sea bass farm on the planet, our rich underground world includes the most visited cave in Europe and you can visit it with an electric train, it is possible to eat in the oldest horse stable of white Lipizzaner horses from 1580, you can privatize the Opera house, and much more.
You should consider Slovenia as a destination for foodies as well. In the last couple of years, the country became one of the most popular culinary hubs in the world. Real food has always been very important to us. The focus is on naturally grown, local and fresh ingredients that are turned into traditional foods, done in a modern way. You will be amazed by the specialties and delicacies of our chefs. Besides, if you want to eat top class, prices are reasonable and the offer is diverse.
Slovenia might not be the largest country in the world, but it could very well be one of the cutest. We dare to say that Slovenia will not disappoint you. If you want to do an unforgettable event, congress, meeting or incentive, Slovenia is undoubtedly the place to do it. It is unique and inspiring, it is declared world’s first green country, locals are friendly and hospitable, and it is totally safe – it is one of the safest places you can visit. Come and see it for yourself. Then spread the word around 😉
