Ljubisic will continue the Tourist Board s promotion of Slovenia in the UK with a strong focus on travel trade, complimented by marketing and communications campaigns. A new UK and Ireland strategy is currently being implemented by Ljubisic, which will aim to have a stronger focus on travel trade, with tour operator and agent management playing a very prominent role.
