The Scout Association of Slovenia welcomes Scouts from all around the world to the 40th World Scout Conference and the 12th World Scout Youth Forum in 2014.
The World Organisation of the Scout Movement - WOSM has in early 2011 selected Ljubljana as the host destination for its 40th jubilee World Scout Conference.
Over 1200 delegates from 130 countries attended the event in August 2014, which makes it not only this year's largest congress in terms of delegate numbers, but also the most international event ever held in the capital and Slovenia. The conference venue, GR - Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre, offered an excellent space flexibility to accommodate the main programme, whilst some parallel events staged in the city centre were also open for the public.

"In August 2014, the Scout Association of Slovenia at the GR-Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre organized the 40th World Scout Conference with over 1200 people from 130 countries, which is the biggest conference of this type according to the number of participating countries in the history of Slovenia. The World Scout Conference was organized together with the World Organization of Scout Movement: with its 40 million members it is the biggest youth organization in the world, and the Scout Association of Slovenia have been its member for 20 years. Main and all accompanying events took place at the GR-Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. In addition to the space, our preparation and execution needed the support of skilled people who we immediately found among the GR-Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre staff. They did their job carefully and professionally, which was confirmed by the participants of the conference - all were impressed by the organization of the event and a well chosen venue."
