Taste Slovenia - Slovenia's Bid Book form the title European Gastronomic region in 2021
Gastronomy is one of the key elements of the tourist offer and greatly contributes to the promotion, recognition and reputation of the state and tourism. The Strategy of Sustainable Growth of Slovenian Tourism 2017-2021 identified it as one of the key tourist products. In the field of gastronomic tourism, we want to achieve greater visibility and position itself as a top gastronomic region of Europe, while at the same time we want to further develop and strengthen the gastronomic offer of Slovenia. This can also be achieved by enrolling in the ERG (European Region of Gastronomy). As an active member of this platform, Slovenia is nominated for the title European Gastronomic Region in 2021.
ONKULT – Operational Marketing Plan for Cultural Tourism in Slovenia
The Slovenian Tourist Board defined culture as the central theme of Slovenian tourism in 2018 and 2019. Therefore, the Operational Marketing Plan for cultural tourism in Slovenia (ONCULT) was prepared. It comprises definitions of key value and promotion-related advantages of the cultural and tourist offer in Slovenia, which are summarised in the matrix of the most attractive products, and a set of elements of the cultural and tourist offer by four macroregions in Slovenia. The presentation of TOP offer is rounded off by a cover marketing story with a slogan, which is implemented in individual tools of the Slovenian Tourist Board.
