Intours DMC shares ideas for unique event locations in Croatia and Slovenia. Which one is your favorite?



1. Basketball court in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Inside the Dubrovnik city walls lies one of the most beautiful basketball courts in the world, claims the Architectural Digest. Intours DMC agrees and is proud to have held an event there recently, becoming the first DMC agency to use the basketball court for a private event.

After four months of securing all the permits and approvals, Intours DMC hosted the opening of an international conference of a shoe manufacturer, promoting their new basketball shoes. And the Dubrovnik basketball court fitted perfectly in the story. Set within the old, terra-cotta roofs of the city, the guests arrived at the basketball court and were surprised by a mind-blowing acrobatic dunk show that filled them with adrenaline and excitement. Followed by a BBQ party, their conference started with an energetic kick – set at an out-of-the-box venue with surprise performance that fitted with their corporate brand like a dream.

2. Secret bay on Hvar island

Hvar's glamorous legacy for having the best of everything is well deserved - from the best beach parties to fabulous sailing, old-timer tours and off road adventures.  And then there is hidden Hvar, elegant, subtle, rare. A short boat ride from Hvar harbor, lies a secluded cove with a beach club and local restaurant. Here incentive groups enjoy a short presentation of the art of fishing, some water activities, massage on the beach or a private beach dinner away from the crowds. What about a bohemian party, a night under the stars, filled with art, surprises, and adventure?

3. (Former) salt store by the Adriatic sea

Halfway between the coastal towns of Portorož and Piran stands Monfort - a magnificent special venue that charms with rich history and location right by the sea. Built in the time of Napoleon as a salt store, it nowadays serves as an exhibition gallery and event venue. The large rustic event space can host receptions, banquets, gala dinners or special events for up to 200 guests seating or 600 standing. Recently Intours DMC held an elegant nautical party there. Decorated with Mediterranean style fishing nets, sea shells and even a traditional fishing boat, the venue immediately took the hearts of our incentive guests.

4. Horse stable in Lipica, Slovenia

Located in the picturesque Karst region of Slovenia, in the midst of century-old lime trees and oaks, lies the Lipica stud farm. Founded in 1580, the stud farm has nurtured the tradition of breeding and training the aristocratic Lipizzan horses.

Apart from breeding the Lipizzan stallions, the Lipica estate provides a beautiful background for your incentive programs. From enjoying a private tour of the stud farm, presentation of horse carriage races to horse whispering program the options are endless. For an authentic dining experience, Intours DMC suggests a private lunch in the stable or a picnic lunch on the green pastures accompanied by the white horses.
