Slovak Tourist Board promotes in New York
The delegation gave presentations to their counterparts from Boston, Minneapolis and Dallas on what Slovakia has to offer. Peter Petian from the Slovak Embassy in New York said the three-day event was organised in response to some 130 travel agents that had expressed an interest in Slovakia.
Petian pointed out how some of the travel agent reps knew nothing about Slovakia as an independent country, although about a third of them had visited former Czechoslovakia. Apart from giving some basic details about the country, the presentations promoted also various popular destinations like the High Tatras and the various sites in Slovakia allocated to the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.
