History of STB
History of STB The Tourism and Commercial Promotion Centre (TCPC) was officially established on 1 October 1983.
The Decree on the founding of the public commercial institute of the Slovenia Tourism Promotion Centre (STPC) then replaced the TCPC with the new Slovenia Tourism Promotion Centre. The founders were the Republic of Slovenia, i.e. the Government, and the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce.
Through a decree amending the earlier decree founding the public commercial institute, the Slovenia Tourism Promotion Centre changed its English name to Slovenian Tourist Board, and the Government remained the sole founder.
At the end of 1999 the Decree transforming the public commercial institute STPC signalled the transformation of STPC into the public commercial institute of the Slovenian Tourist Board (Slovenska nacionalna turistična organizacija), and this decree was followed by another amendment with certain adjustments, with the word nacionalna being deleted, leaving the current Slovenian title of Slovenska turistična organizacija (STB).
STB was operating within SPIRIT, public agency from the beginning of 2013 till the end of July 2015.
Since the first of august 2015 Slovenian Tourist Board has continued with operations in the field of tourism on its own once again.
