We all love to travel, right? To the most secluded parts of the world, all with the desire for new adventures, lively places, or traditional tastes.

»When traveling, we rely on the hospitality and dedication of tourism workers, who are involved in creating unforgettable experiences and lifelong memories. However, the interest in tourism professions has been declining in recent years on a global scale. This is why this year's creative competition aims to raise awareness about the importance and added value of professions in tourism« said Katja Nared, Content Marketing Project Manager at Slovenian Tourist Board.

The Golden Drum festival has sprung its roots in the salty soil on the Slovenian coast, a beloved tourist destination where locals work heartily and proudly to be the best ambassadors of the country in the eyes of travelers.

»We hope to find creative solutions that would show that working in tourism is exciting and offers countless opportunities for growth, international exchanges, and life experiences. Being part of the Young Drummers competition once again is very exciting for us. We strongly believe in the great ideas of young creatives that wish to help co-create the future of tourism« added Tina Sračnjek, Project Manager of Digital Content Marketing at Slovenian Tourist Board.
