This year Slovenian Convention Bureau in cooperation with partners like the Slovenian Tourist Board, Ljubljana Convention Bureau at Ljubljana Tourism and sixteen other participating partners launched the Slovenian Ambassadors Program (SAP) intended for the promotion of meetings industry in Slovenia. The main event of the Slovenian Ambassadors Program for 2019 will take place on 14 November at 6pm in Ljubljana Castle where the honorary titles of the first Congress Ambassadors for 2019 will be awarded. Borut Pahor, the President of the Republic of Slovenia took over the honorary patronage of this important event for Slovenian MICE.
Aim of the Slovenian Congress Ambassador Program is to further contribute to Slovenia’s success in the internationalization of science, professional sciences, economy and sports. Slovenia already owns an eminent reputation globally in terms of scientific, professional, business and sports environment. »Many individuals with their knowlede and dedication are daily contributing to this reputation, thus they are rasing the recogniton and success of Slovenia,« says Miha Kovačič, director of the Slovenian Convention Bureau. For this reason they will be awarded as significant parts of the greater success of Slovenia in the meetings industry.
But the project will not stop on Thursday with the awards ceremony, as the Slovenian Ambassador Program is of a long-term nature aiming to bring to Slovenia even more international scientific, professional, business and sporting events. Also, the Thursday’s event is not the first event of the project. The first event was held already in June 2019 in Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel in Ljubljana where the first meeting of the project took place. There, the nominated ambassadors and candidates for nomination from diverse scientific and professional institutes, universites, associations and chambers from all around the country were presented.
Before the award ceremony on Thursday at 6pm in Ljubljana Castle, the press conference of the project will be held at 12pm at Slovenian Tourist Information Center at Krekov Trg 10 in Ljubljana. The press conference will be attended by Miha Kovačič, MBA, Director of Slovenian Convention Bureau, Petra Stušek, MSc, Director of Ljubljana Tourism, and Karmen Novarlič, MA, Head of Business Communication at the Slovenian Tourist Board.
