The Castles of Posavje project has been awarded the Jakob 2020 Award and the title Ambassador of Innovation in Tourism in the field of innovative tourism content and programs with regards to castles and mansions 2020 by the Exhibition and Convention Centre for Innovation, Quality and Excellence in Tourism.
The international jury explained its
decision as follows: "Various topic are joined in one single project. This
interconnectedness is exceptional and innovative in terms of the general state
of affairs in Slovenia, where we are often inclined to enclose ourselves behind
castle walls. The Castles of Posavje are in search of new identities and are
establishing contact with the local and regional cultural environment."
As has been the tradition for the last ten years, both the
title and the award will be awarded by the Exhibition and Convention Centre on
January 29th at 1pm at the grand opening of the 31st Alpe-Adria Trade Fair in
representatives of the Castles of Posavje are:
Delighted! It is with a great dose of optimism and energy that we accept this
promise to continue to excel, to surprise and to share good stories!"
