SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE LOCATION OF THE EVENT:


Slovenia

Slovenia is a country of a great diversity. You can experience amazing contrasts in the same day: a morning swim in the Adriatic, followed two hours later by skiing below Alpine peaks, then an adventurous discovery of Karst subterranean phenomena and an invigorating bath in a thermal spring; an encounter with history in a lively mediaeval city and, not far away, a more solitary stroll through primeval forests or undulating, winegrowing hills.

Bled

With immense natural beauty, Bled, together with its surroundings, ranks among the most beautiful alpine resorts, renowned for its mild, healing climate and thermal lake water. The beauty of the mountains reflected on the lake, the sun, the serenity and the fresh air arouse pleasant feelings in visitors throughout the year, guaranteeing an ideal base or a relaxing break or an active holiday. Bled attracts businessmen, artists, athletes, explorers, sport enthusiasts, the old and the young, from all over the world, enchanting them to return again and again.

Spring 2008, when the 23rd workshop on Strategic human resource management is expected to be hosted by the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Social Sciences (University of Ljubljana), will be a special time for Slovenia. After adopting Euro in January 2007 as the first of the new EU member states, Slovenia will again be the first new EU member state to hold the Presidency of the European Union.

Hence, the workshop will take place in a very beautiful location and at a very special time.
