The biggest business-tourism event for active holidays in Slovenia will be held from 15 to 17 October in the Savinja and Šalek Valley. Tourist agencies from across Slovenia will present their sports and tourism offer to numerous potential partners from abroad at Natour Alps, the 9th travel and trade show of active holidays.
Natour Alps will once again be a meeting point for supply and demand for outdoor activities. At an altitude of 1,430 metres above sea level at the Golte ski centre, one of the most beautiful in Slovenia, a relaxed business environment will enable stress-free meetings between providers and hosted buyers as well as plenty of chances for new business connections.
The B2B event organised by Hiking & Biking Slovenia and the agency Toleranca Marketing, with the support of the Slovenian Tourist Board and this year’s host, Savinja and Šalek Regional Development Agency, will host around 30 new hosted buyers interested in outdoor programmes in Slovenia. Alongside the offer presented at the trade show they will also get the chance to experience a selection of outdoor programmes on different fam trips. Hosted buyers will be able to choose between two trips filled with active adventures and Slovenian culinary delights. The focus of the first will be on an active escape to the Slovenian natural parks, while the other will evoke all of the human senses with a cultural-historical walk through the Savinja and Šalek valley that is also known as the Slovenian active holiday’s paradise.
As with every year, this year too the NATOUR programme will be enriched with a great conference programme that will include best practice examples and trends in outdoor tourism. The keynote speaker, Petra Wolffhardt from the Austrian agency Die Wölfe and who will speak about Holistic Experience Design in Nature Tourism, will be joined by a number of Slovenian experts presenting hiking, biking and sustainable trends. Natour will once again be “The place” for ideas on how to spend active holidays in a natural environment.
