The conference 2017
Conference Croatian tourism 365? – 2nd step
The first conference about year-round tourism held in 2017 was exceptionally successful presenting experiences and thoughts of 30 eminent local and regional tourism experts and attracting nearly 300 participants – hotel, spa, tourist companies and crafts, tourist agencies, tourist boards and cities. We have received many praises for the initiative and organization and especially for the selection of topics and lecturers from Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It can be seen here.
This year our goal is to present and discuss potentials, opportunities, positive practices and solutions for development of year-round tourism in Croatia and to develop suggestions on how to stimulate and develop it. We will highlight the necessity of developing destinations as a prerequisite for the season extension and also cultural tourism since we are in the year of cultural heritage. We will bring a number of domestic and foreign experts who will share their knowledge and positive experiences and participate in well-conducted panel discussions.
We will get answers to a number of issues related to the development of tourism and especially tourist destinations, which requires cooperation, determination and perseverance, but also creativity and authenticity. Do we need a clear strategy for the development of year-round tourism? How to attract serious investors? What can local government do and can each of us be the holder of the development of year-round tourism? Do we have enough knowledge about it? How to ensure the required quality and how to follow world trends? Conference Croatian Tourism 365 – 2nd step will give us answers to that!
