With the campaign that went on from 1 October 2019 to 29 February 2020, the Slovenian Tourist Board aimed at raising awareness of Slovenia as a green and sustainable destination where visitors can experience exceptional natural beauty, including unspoiled water resources and healing waters. Our goal was to address the most discerning guests, looking for one-of-a-kind experiences.

The campaign was designed in co-operation with National Geographic. With quality pieces, video and photo content and resounding posts on this media giant’s social media, Slovenia presented itself as a destination of exceptional natural water resources and a rich thermal tradition. With the focus on the markets of Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy and the USA, the images of Slovenia in various formats appeared on National Geographic TV channels, online platforms and social media.

Slovenian waters, presented with top quality visuals and stories of ambassadors

The National Geographic team visited Slovenia in July last year and, in Moravske Toplice, Rogaška Slatina, Strunjan, Bohinj, Sečoveljske soline and Ljubljana, they created video and photo content presenting the exceptional water wealth of rivers, seas, drinking water, thermal and mineral waters of Slovenia. At the same time, they created a special landing page for the campaign and four pieces featured on their websites: an umbrella article, accompanying the Waters of Wellbeing 4-minute video, a list of interesting facts, an itinerary for a multi-day visit of Slovenia and a photo gallery of images of Slovenia and its healthy waters.
