44 innovative ideas in tourism run for the Snovalec Award

Have you ever experienced a forest wellness centre, sleeping in the treetops, or tried Trnič, the ‘cheese of love’? You can try them all in green, active and healthy Slovenia, which promotes innovative tourism stories. The Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) and the Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia gathered 44 innovative ideas for the Snovalec (Creator) Awards – a programme which recognises innovative ideas in tourism. A grant of €15,000 will be awarded between the winning ideas. The winners will present their ideas in front of a professional committee on 6th April.

Slovenia supports the development of innovative approaches in tourism. Since 2009, the Slovenian Tourist Board has been encouraging the promotion and realisation of the best ideas in tourism. The Snovalec (Creator) Award is given to acknowledge innovative ideas in tourism which need financial and promotional support for their realisation. The Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) and the Bank of Tourism Potentials in Slovenia have gathered 44 innovative ideas for the project. The estimated grant of €15,000 will be divided between 3 winners, who will have to complete their projects by November 2016 and thereby significantly enrich Slovenian tourism. The finalists will be announced on 4th April and will present their projects to the professional committee on 6th April.

The winners of the Snovalec (Creator) Award in 2015 were:

* Footgolf in Bovec - golf played with the feet and a soccer ball

* SnappGuides – a mobile application designed for travel and landscape photography lovers from all over the world

* Escape Igloo – a tourist attraction - an upgrade of the "Escape Room" concept.
