In less than two weeks, the Texas Feels Slovenia Business Event will take place on Apr. 6 and 7 in Dallas. A series of events organized by the Ministry of the Economy, Tourism and Sport of Slovenia, together with SPIRIT Slovenia, Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) and other partners will promote economic, investment and tourism opportunities in the US market. The event will culminate on the evening of Apr. 7 with the I feel Slovenia Night. The event, organized by the STB, together with the Government Communications Office (UKOM) and Ljubljana Tourism, will promote Slovenia on and near the court, during halftime and in the promotional and exhibition area.
Slovenian Tourist Board formed a partnership with Luka Dončić because of his remarkable sporting success, the enthusiasm of his fans, the attention of the American and global media, and his genuine love for Slovenia. Additionally, a two-year partnership with the Dallas Mavericks will highlight Slovenia and the ‘I feel Slovenia‘ brand in advertising activities at the Dallas Mavericks games for the upcoming seasons.
To promote I Feel Slovenia Night, the STB launched a special landing page, as well as Feel Slovenia the Podcast with Tim MacMahon, who’s among the world’s best-known basketball reporters. He visited Slovenia last September and felt overwhelmed with the beauties of the country.
Further information about the event is available in the press release.
