We are starting the year 2018 with 35 team members and we’re still hiring in Croatia. Marko and Martina joined Ljubljana’s MICE department in January as project managers and Ursa joined the team as a marketing manager. We believe that our team members are all we’ve got – without people Intours DMC is simply an office with chairs and tables. Meet Martina, Marko and Ursa and learn about their personal incentive pick.
Why do you breathe tourism?
Martina: As we all know, breathing is not an optional activity - it is something that we have to do throughout our entire lives. The breath is also a bridge between body and soul. I breathe tourism, because it makes me feel alive.
Marko: Because travelling is food for the soul.
Ursa: It is very easy to communicate a product you believe in. I am inspired by Slovenia and its nature and I’d love to see more people experience it. I l also love creativity, freedom, dynamics and a perfect mix of German organization and Balkan vibes at our work.
What was the most exciting project you worked on before joining Intours team & why was it exciting for you?
Martina: After several years working in tourism I've organized a lot of trips and tours. The biggest challenge was the incentive travel of 300 Russian guests to Scandinavia. this was the first case of incentive travel, in which I had the opportunity to participate. That's why it was exciting for me.
Marko: The most exciting project so far was working on World Basketball Championship in Istanbul, 2010. In combined two of my greatest passions in life: travelling and sports, so it was an unforgettable experience.
Ursa: I’ve been organizing TEDxLjubljana events as a volunteer for the past 7 years. Organizing an event at Kredarica (just below Slovenia’s highest peak, Triglav) in a mountain hut was priceless. It was an intimate event for around 50 people and everyone, including the speakers, had to walk around 6 hours to get there. The energy, connectedness among the team and positive vibes were unforgettable.
If you personally were attending an incentive event in Slovenia or Croatia, where would you go and why?
Martina: I am the person who adores warm weather, sun and see...and for this year I would choose an incentive event in Croatia, on Hvar Island. An unspoilt island with beautiful landscape, crystal clear sea, pure nature and the exceptional venues and restaurants...after 10 years, I think it is time to visit Hvar again :)
Marko: I would visit 3 places in Slovenia: Ljubljana for its nightlife and entertainment possibilities, Soča Valley for outdoor activities like rafting and Piran for a taste of Slovenian history.
Ursa: I love mountains, lakes, snow and adrenaline. In the summer, I would go to Bohinj lake, the most zen place in Slovenia, where I would hike and test my adrenaline limits with paragliding. In the winter, I would snow hike the Pokljuka plateau and enjoy the view of the snowy spruce trees.
