Slovenian tourist board chose the Soča valley, more accurately Kobarid as the venue for their 8th Incentive meeting of portal trustees. Over 80 contributors of the www.slovenia.info portal attended – representatives of local tourist organisations, tourist associations, public institutes, spas, hotels and other companies, involved in tourism around Slovenia, presenting their offer at the tourist portal.
The professional part of the 2-day meeting took place in the morning, in the afternoon the local tourist organisation prepared a programme where the visitors got to know and experience the history, tourist offer, tradition and tastes of Posočje.  The freshly fallen snow made the visit to the World War One outdoor museum Kolovrat and a military lunch at a Mediterranean terrace in the setting sun a truly VIP experience. If we add the lunch consisted of a deer goulash with polenta from the fireplace and deer salami from Jelenov breg tourist farm and was followed by a visit to the tourist settlement Nebesa (Heaven) we are not very far from the description “heavenly”.
The participants got to know that Posočje offers vivid ethnological heritage daily in the cheese making museum “Od planine do Planike”, which introduces the live heritage of Tolminc cheese and other dairy products, which the participants also got to taste. The legendary owner of camp Koren, Lidija introduced the eco wooden houses by the river Soča and her experiences with gaining a European certificate of Eco Accommodation.
In the idyllic village of Drežnica pod Krnom the guests witnessed a replay of the experience of Drežnica Carnival with witty comments and explanations, which made them laugh. Jelka from Jelkin hram made an excellent homemade dinner.  The cheese soup was the clear winner among soups.
The first day ended with music and dancing and the next day started with a visit to Kobarid museum, one of the best war museums in Europe – the contrast was obvious. After the educational part of the second day of the meeting, the awards ceremony and a lunch at restaurant Topli val the participants left the snowy Posočje full of new knowledge and experiences.
