April 25, 26 & 27, 2012
Ljubljana, Slovenia
Grand Hotel Union


(Jacksonville, Florida & Ljubljana, Slovenia) The Slovenian Tourist Board, Ljubljana Tourism, and international event management firm William H. Coleman, Inc., are welcoming international Leisure Travel “Buyers” and “Suppliers” to the 2nd annual New Europe Travel Mart (NETM’12) at the Grand Hotel Union, April 25, 26, 27.  This annual tourism sales/business development event is designed to increase leisure travel to the region that includes the Baltic to the Balkans, and is increasingly referred to by Tourism Professionals as “New Europe.”

The New Europe Travel Mart (NETM) features a unique three (3) day “pre-scheduled appointments” format that the Coleman organization has successfully applied in other global tourism destinations for almost forty (40) years. Business Sessions will enable “Buyers” of Leisure Travel services from global markets to meet senior sales and marketing executives representing “Supplier” organizations from the “New Europe” region.  The Coleman NETM system has already pre-scheduled twenty minute (20) minute personal appointments in Supplier booth/offices during the two (2) days of business sessions.  Many of these appointments are “Perfect Match” appointments when both Buyers and Suppliers have requested to meet each other.

“Buyers” are “decision makers” from companies and organizations that can “ contract and book” group, FIT, and special interest travel products from markets in the USA, the United Kingdom, Brazil, France, Denmark, India, Mexico, Qatar, Spain, and Switzerland.  Each of these Buyers made a significant financial investment in air fare and registration fees to attend NETM’12, usually over US$1,200.

“Suppliers” are experienced sales executives who are prepared to make commitments representing hotels, airlines, cruise companies, receptive operators, car rental firms, attractions, resorts, tourist boards, city and convention bureaus, and promotional organizations from Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Serbia, Lithuania, and Montenegro.

Buyers arrange and pay for their air transportation, plus pay a US$175 Registration Fee.  Buyer Registration includes three (3) nights’ single room accommodations at the Grand Hotel Union, round-trip airport transfers, all business sessions with pre-scheduled appointments, all official hosted social functions, and ground transportation. 

Suppliers pay a US$975 (950 Euro’s) that include a 2.5m X 2m booth/office with table, 4 chairs, sign, and electrical connection; all business sessions including pre-scheduled appointments with Buyers; all official hosted social functions; round-trip airport transfers; ground transportation; and special discounted hotel rates at the Grand Hotel Union.  Suppliers were discouraged from building elaborate stand/displays since the Registration Fees include everything they need for their pre-scheduled appointments.

One of the important reasons Ljubljana, Slovenia was selected as this year’s venue was the strong support NETM received from the Slovenian Tourist Board, and Ljubljana Tourism.  Maja Pak, Director of the Slovenian Tourism Board, stated:  “We are pleased to join with our Ljubljana Travel Industry colleagues to host this outstanding group of tourism professionals.  We believe this will help everyone to not only promote Slovenia, but also help focus International Tourism Buyers’ attention on ‘New Europe.’  We are confident these next few days will be a productive and enjoyable experience.”

Barbara Vajda, Managing Director of Ljubljana Tourism, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to welcome these Tourism Professionals to personally experience all that Ljubljana has to offer.  This is a very special place, and we are looking forward to sharing it with these special visitors.”    

Irma Coleman, President & CEO of William H. Coleman, Inc. said:  “We are very pleased that so many dedicated and professional Buyers and Suppliers have made the investments in time and money to attend NETM’12.  There are no “Hosted Buyers” at NETM, and every Leisure Travel Buyer that is here has made a significant financial investment to get to Ljubljana.  They are very interested in meeting the Suppliers from Slovenia and “New Europe,” and they mean business.”

 NETM’12 Hosts and Partners include the Slovenian Tourist Board, Ljubljana Tourism, the Grand Hotel nion, Delta Air Lines, KLM, Air France, Alitalia, and Adria Airways.
