The activities of the Slovenian Tourist Board will be mainly focused on increasing the recognisability of Slovenia as a green, active, healthy, sustainability-oriented tourist destination, promoting innovative products and stories of Slovenian tourism through market engagement programmes. To kick off the promotions in the Middle East, STO had a very successful presence at the Riyadh Travel Fair, where it participated for the first time, from April 12 – 15, 2016, and will then make a return appearance at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) to be held in Dubai from April 25 – 28, 2016.

Another unique attraction is the ecological tourist farms, which offer a healthy living environment and certified organic food.
