Interviews with the Slovenian Congress Ambassadors 2021
This year, the title of Slovenia’s Congress Ambassador went to 17 exceptional individuals, whose dedication, commitment, international involvement, and perseverance helped Slovenia host international scientific, professional, and other business and sports events over the past couple of years.
Due to the importance of the project for Slovenia’s meetings industry, we wanted to highlight four interviews with this year’s Slovenian Congress Ambassadors. All of them emphasized the importance of live events, but are at the same time aware that hybrid events are the new reality.

The Slovenian Ambassador Programme was launched in 2019 with the support of the Slovenian Tourist Board, in cooperation with the Ljubljana Convention Bureau at Tourism Ljubljana. It aims to identify, recognize and support Slovenian scientists, doctors, professors, researchers, business people, athletes and other individuals who are members of international associations, experts in their respective fields and who strive to bring international events to Slovenia. Today, the Slovenian Ambassador Programme has 67 ambassadors.
The project was carried out with the financial support of the Slovenian Tourist Board.
