We are happy to present you a new partner of the project “Slovenian Energy – the secret for your meetings and incentives”: Best Western Premier Hotel Slon. Here are the answers to our three questions, provided by Helena Kotolenko, Conference & Event Manager at Best Western Premier Hotel Sloan.

1. Tell us something we don’t know about Slovenia and that you think is of interest to international planners.
