After Olympic feeling and new adventures ahead
Another daring venture is behind us, which we can add on our list of achievements. We couldn’t even imagine a better start of the year, than being a part of an amazing project such as building a Slovenia House in PyeongChang this February.
For BIG BERRY, Winter Olympics in South Korea were right on spot. Having the opportunity to spread the word about our work, do the networking and being around inspirational people, who all together all share one thing: passion for what they do. And for us, that was enough. “Passion. Connected”, as the slogan of the Games stated, was something we could easily identify with, and what showed us that this opportunity was not to be missed - so we decided to make the best out of it.
A place full of events, gatherings, people from all around the world, seemed like perfect scenario for our team. And it was. International spirit was spreading all around, while still being able to feel the atmosphere of home thanks to the coziness of Slovenia House, whose ambience was created with a help of creative minds from ArnoldVuga and GregorcVrhovec.

Interior was designed with a hep of ArnoldVuga designers
It’s not unknown that BIG BERRY is an eventful concept. Our hearts and minds can’t stay still for a long time, so we are always looking for something new and creative that will make us feel connected.
To our delight, about 20 events, 1400 invited guests and more than 2000 visitors, from which numerous Slovenians and international sportsmen, businessmen, journalists, partners, suppliers, volunteers and tour operators, were hosted in the Slovenia House during 17 days of Winter Olympics. And just like we stated in one of our “21 Olympic Days“ post, it was all about the connection.
One of the most successful events which took place in Slovenia House, organized by Slovenia Touristic Organization (STO), was workshop for local and international tour operators and agencies. Excited for the opportunity to present our story and hear all the feedbacks, we knew this was an extremely valuable experience.

BB mini replica house
It is well known that BIG BERRY houses are, except being modern and comfortable, also mobile. By creating a special edition of mini, wooden BB replica house with a help of Iztok Oblak, a hayrack expert from Slovenia, we were able to bring a touch of Slovenian authenticity all the way to South Korea. The house travelled for almost 2 months across the seas to reach its destination. It was the first trip of the BB mini house, but definitely not the last one, especially after the feedback it received in Korea. It roof might not be smiling like the ones in Korea, but the story behind its brand tends to put a smile on peoples faces.
