Beer Fountain wins the award for innovations

The winners of the Snovalec award are now known. Together, they will receive a grant of €15,000 to realise their innovations in tourism. The most innovative ideas of 2016 are: Fountain Green Gold, Sugar Lace and “In the middle of fantastic nowhere”.

The Snovalec (Creator) awards are given to acknowledge innovative ideas in tourism which need financial and promotional support for their realization. From 44 submitted applications, the expert jury selected 3 winners.

The winners of the Snovalec (Creator) awards 2016 are:

* Fountain Green Gold in Žalec, perfectly described by the publisher of Lonely Planet travel guides: “A little town in eastern Slovenia wishes to place itself on the (tourist) map by the construction of the first beer-drinking fountain in Europe.".

* Sugar Lace, a culinary design project that connects cultural heritage and innovation. The project transfers the idea of traditional Idrija Lace to the idea of a sophisticated edible lace, used in baking.

* In the middle of fantastic nowhere is an all-Slovenian culinary project, focused on natural wealth – water. The project also includes other outstanding achievements of our green, active and healthy country: family restaurants, products of Slovenian design and innovative tourist accommodation.
