Ljubljana, 28th March 2014 – As the rainbow flag is raised over Whitehall this weekend to mark the country's first same-sex marriage ceremonies, English and Welsh gay couples are set to tie the knot from Saturday.  And with the arrival of gay marriage, attention now turns to the best locations for newlywed gay couples.

In the latest edition of the leading gay lifestyle magazine Attitude Slovenia was included among its 25 of the best and most exciting most romantic honeymoon destinations, while capital Ljubljana was named as one of the world's most beautiful capitals.

Slovenian luxury inbound operator - Imperial Luxury Travel Solutions has seized the moment with a tourist package targeting gay and lesbian couples calledPinkWeek.eu, which was successfully launched recently in London and Berlin (ITB 2014).

According to Imperial Luxury Travel it should come as no surprise that Slovenia was named among the top wedding and honeymoon destinations, as the LGBT tourist offer has been carefully prepared for last couple of years. Imperial Luxury Travel specialise in the luxury high-end segment of the market and has extended their offer tailored for the growing LGBT sector.

 “Lesbians and gay men are a dream market for the tourism industry.”

Gay and lesbian travel is recognised as one of the fastest growing tourist segment. A study by GETA (Gay European Tourism Association) estimates over 22m 'out' gay people in Europe alone, with estimated total annual expenditure on tourism reaching between £39 and £42 billion. Similar expenditure is made by the USA 'out' gay population.

 (Mr) Tine Murn, head of the Slovenia tourist office in London, said: “Slovenia is a destination, which is for some segments of British travel market still fairly unknown. It is very encouraging, that we have projects like PinkWeek.eu, which raise awareness and recognition among British holidaymakers, media and travel trade. It is even more important that this project is happening at this historical moment for British gays and lesbians. With products like PinkWeek.eu, Slovenia is definitely presented as an innovative and welcoming destination as well as being tailored to individual needs. We believe, the modern guest wants exactly what s/he wants and not necessary what is just offered.” 

 Founders of Imperial Luxury Travel Solutions, (Mr) Matej Knific and (Mr) Mattej Valenčič, said: “We were really impressed by the responses we got at the biggest world travel event (ITB 2014) in Berlin. We are only at the beginning and yet we have already gained so much recognition among the media and trade around the world: Slovenia is a rising star among LGBT travel destinations.

As a gay couple ourselves, we believe our knowledge of the travel sector coupled with an understanding of LGBT audiences, makes us particularly well placed to present Slovenia to discerning gay honeymooners. With project PinkWeek.eu our goal is to grow the profile of our beautiful country in the world. “
