Your Hosts

Matej & Mattej organized the first ever Pink Week travel package for gays and their friends in May 2014 at various Slovenian tourist locations. A part of the programe was also the Eurosong 2014 gala dinner at Ljubljana Castle on 10 May, organized for visiting guests, LGBTI media and partners.

Mattej Valencic is the co-founder and General Managing Partner of Luxury Slovenia DMC. He is mastermind behind several travel brands designed all with the vision to offer a personal and exclusive approach to guests, where no wish is impossible to make true. This vision was led by the absence of luxury travel poducts on the local market. After 20 years in tourism it was again time to offer something new. This time he decided to put his home country Slovenia, which he adores and loves, on the map of luxury and LGBTI welcoming destinations. Personally, Mattej spends his free time going to clubs, theatre and opera, enjoying good food and wine with his family and friends.

Matej Knific is the co-founder and General Managing Partner of Luxury Slovenia DMC. For more than 10 years he has been working in the field of marketing, covering fields like product marketing, corporate marketing, new product development, and digital marketing. Three years ago, he transposed his marketing expertise to the field of tourism. He is part of the team developing new Slovenian brands like Luxury Slovenia and Pink Week driven by a strong conviction that Slovenia can be put on the map of luxury and LGBTI welcoming destinations. Personally, Matej spends his free time exploring Slovenia, jogging, cycling, doing yoga and enjoying good food and wine with his family and friends.

“As a gay couple ourselves, we believe our knowledge of the travel sector, coupled with an understanding of LGBTI audiences, makes us particularly well-placed to present Slovenia to discerning gay and lesbian travellers. With the travel concept our goal is to grow the profile of our beautiful country in the world.” says Matej&Mattej
