Director General of the Slovenian Tourist Board
Msc. Maja Pak
A green boutique global destination for high-end visitors seeking diverse and active experiences, peace, and personal benefits. A destination of five-star experiences. This is the vision for Slovenia as a tourist destination, which is developed and realized by Mag. Maja Pak, Director General of the Slovenian Tourist Board, together with a dedicated team and over 20 years of experience in tourism."Tourism is a very dynamic field where eight-hour workdays do not exist. I enjoy my work, it fills me with energy, positivity and new ideas,” says Pak about her days. Numerous international recognitions and awards, extreme media exposure and successful projects in recent years attest to the fact that Slovenia is becoming not only a globally recognized tourist destination of extraordinary experiences but also a trendsetter and a provider of best practices in sustainable tourism development. This earned Slovenia the title of a green destination as the first in the world.

Nataša Hočevar, Head of Department
What the market profiles of guests who visit Slovenia are, how to get closer to them and how to design tourist products relevant to them. How to develop Slovenian tourism in a way that will produce financial effects and not have any negative impacts on the environment. These are key challenges taken on by the Research, Development, Innovation, and EU Projects Department headed by Nataša Hočevar. It is important to constantly "be one step ahead of others, know and set trends, think outside the box". With a vision of 100 per cent green Slovenia in mind, they devised an internationally recognised certification scheme Slovenia Green and regularly exchange new breakthroughs in Slovenian tourism at the Department's development think tank.
