The municipality of Ajdovščina has a strategic plan to build the »Vipava Valley EXPO« fair in this area. – EXPO Vipava Valley is designed as an intersection and a meeting point of providers of local harvest and products (not only agricultural but also other products of the Vipava Valley and the region as a whole) as well as visitors and consumers. EXPO Vipava Valley will be formed as a tourist destination, stopping the transit passenger from heading towards other Slovene destinations.
The complex of EXPO Vipava Valley anticipates construction of multiple facilities which would function simultaneously as a demonstration and promotional place of critical economic operators of the Vipava Valley, construction of common meat and dairy learning processing establishments, a cold store, storage rooms and rooms for product completion, a smaller conference centre, a catering establishment, reception of a displaced hotel featuring a tourist information centre of the Vipava Valley destination, a showroom of the local economy, a centre for promoting craft and economy as a whole, a showroom of industrial heritage featuring a centre for passing traditional skills of ancient crafts and skills that are in the process of being forgotten as well as the land of water wheels on which the entire industrial development of Ajdovščina and the Vipava Valley was based.
In the long run, EXPO Vipava Valley is expected to become an independent tourist destination.
