The 40th World Scout Conference will take place from the 11th to 15th of August 2014 at Gospodarsko razstavišce – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre (www. ljubljanafair.com), the largest multifunctional events centre in the city centre of the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. It hosts all types of business events on a regular basis (congresses, seminars, various workshops, concerts and other entertainment and cultural events).The venue will not only provide a quality working environment for the conference, but also give our guests an opportunity to discover Ljubljana and enjoy its pleasant summer vibe. The Host Committee is also planning various events for participants at different locations, including Tivoli Park, Ljubljana Castle and Križanke Summer Theatre.Zveza tabornikov Slovenije, the National Scout Organization of Slovenia (ZTS), is the largest youth organization in Slovenia. We have first-hand experience in hosting a large scale event – the European Guide and Scout Conferences in 2007.Based on the outstandingly positive feedback from that event coupled with the knowledge and skills we learnt and improved on, we took on the challenge of hosting the World Scout Youth Forum and World Scout Conference.As an organization we are involved at different levels and in various aspects of the Slovenian society. Hosting the World Scout Youth Forum and World Scout Conference will give us an opportunity to further promote Scouting and its values within the wider society.In 2014, ZTS will celebrate its 20th anniversary of joining the World Organization of the Scout Movement as an independent National Scout Organization.
