Supporting the Slovenian Tourist Board's World Bee Day: Introducing Api Tourism to the World

The Brief

Create a campaign focused on raising awareness for the environment and Slovenia's rich cultural heritage, to assist the Slovenian Tourist Board in securing UN backing for the first ever World Bee Day and gaining global recognition for api tourism.

Our Solution

AM+A spearheaded Slovenia’s World Bee Day campaign, which generated high profile international press coverage across 30 items of media (including New York Times, The Guardian and CNN) to help secure UN backing for the first ever World Bee Day. Our initial activity led to a two-year national tourist board campaign, including representation at the World Travel Market.

What They Said

"AM+A played a vital role in helping to establish World Bee Day as one of the Slovenian Tourist Board’s objective and helped the country be recognised as one of Europe’s leaders in sustainable tourism. They have helped us achieve a 43% rise in visitor numbers, while prioritising authentic, sustainable travel experiences."
