The first Strategy of Digital Transformation of Slovenian Tourism 2022-2026 has been published

From October 2021 to March 2022, the Slovenian Tourist Board intensively worked on the Strategy of Digital Transformation of Slovenian Tourism, along with the consortium of the Center of Business Excellence of the Faculty of Economics (CPOEF) of the University of Ljubljana and Horwath HTL.

The first Strategy of Digital Transformation of Slovenian Tourism 2022-2026 has been published

Major shifts in the digital transformation of tourist destinations and providers were set and solutions for improved management of digital and sustainable tourism at the national level outlined. Find further information on the STB website.

Today’s increasingly digital and sustainable paradigm brings many opportunities as well as some challenges that can be best addressed through a coordinated and structured strategic approach and the integration of a broad range of stakeholders in the field of tourism and digitalisation. Therefore, we had to address the growing need for a digital breakthrough in addition to Green Transformation, where STB has been implementing many activities that have been internationally recognized as good practice for many years (e.g. the Green Scheme).

In addition to the Green Transformation, the digital breakthrough is also a European priority, which is why the STB Recovery and Resilience Plan included the creation of an analytical tool for measuring the effects of tourism in leading destinations and a system for measuring tourist flows in leading destinations.
