2. Could you please describe Slovenia in five words?

Where unicorns come on vacation.

3. What example in your specific MICE offer is adding a particularly energizing element to programs?

Putting the client’s needs in the first place and creating an authentic experience is the bottom line of all iDMC events.

For a group of 600 participants iDMC created a truly unique incentive program, called My umbrella can turn into a balloon, that was inspired by the famous Slovenian fairy tale. Participants were offered a fresh and fun approach for discovering the most beautiful (and magic!) spots of Ljubljana. Divided in 30 groups, they were given different tasks to perform across Ljubljana, dining in one of the 11 city restaurants which cater for the event and at the end of their journey, they all gathered at the Ljubljana Castle where they made their wishes fly into the sky and continue with the entertaining program. A precious experience of pure magic!
