American Chamber of Commerce – AmCham Slovenia celebrates its 15th Anniversary. As a powerful business community with more than 250 corporate members, we wish to celebrate the anniversary in cooperation with You, our members.

The purpose of our project Best of the Best is to find those among our members who will share their best practices with us and thus bring new knowledge and experience into Slovenian environment. We believe that such a transfer of good practices will contribute to an important enrichment of the wider Slovenian Economic Area.

We will on three Best of the Best events present a total of 15 best practices from three different categories, which will be selected among the members upon a special competition. A special committee will together with the participants of the events select the winners of each selected category, which will compete for the Best of the Best Award. The Award will be presented at the gala event celebrating the 15th Anniversary. In addition to the award and promotion, the winning projects will as well receive a free publication in the AmCham Annual Yearbook at the end of 2014, with which the companies and their projects also get a broader recognized value.

Today it holds the position of the leading international business community in Slovenia, totaling more than 250 international and Slovenian member companies – including many of the largest and most important firms in Slovenia.

We are happy and proud to announce that in 2014 we are celebrating our 15 Great Years Anniversary in Slovenia, and we decided to do it together with you, our AmCham Slovenia members. We decided to involve you in finding the 15 best business projects and presenting them to the business public.


We want to expose and promote the good work, creativity, and success of members’ projects that make / have made a difference, and those that are great models to present. We celebrate with our members and focus on you great stories – we are, because you are.

Purpose of the program

Promote the excellence and good practices of our members through your successful stories and projects. Your success is our fuel, and to celebrate means to celebrate with you. Cooperation in Best of the Best is a great opportunity for our members / partners to present and publicize their businesses – we expect also media coverage.
