The season has passed, although I hope it is still going on, but the peak of the season is definitely over, a record season in terms of both the number of nights and the number of arrivals. Slowly but surely, the tourist story for next year is coming together and the time of various workshops, conferences, fairs and business meetings is starting.One of the very important and valuable workshops is certainly Sell Croatia, organized by the CNTB, because regardless of the achievements of technology, direct meeting and contact is still very important and crucial for long-term and quality cooperation. You can learn a lot from every conversation, meet new people who will lead us to new opportunities, which is why networking is the strongest entrepreneurial tool today, and I hope it always will be.Business workshops called “Sell Croatia” (B2B workshop) are held between Croatian tourism entities and foreign partners, and characteristic of the concept of “Sell Croatia” is the maintenance of emitting markets. Most of the workshops are organized by the CNTB representative office abroad, ie organized by the CNTB DG if there is no representative office on the relevant market. The aim of the workshops is meetings of representatives of the Croatian tourism industry (hotel and tourism companies, travel agencies and DMC) with foreign partners as well as business meetings with partners and negotiations on the purchase of services and / or packages.The CNTB points out that, as far as distant markets are concerned, where the Croatian National Tourist Board does not have its representative offices, cities where workshops will be held have not been defined yet because we are still examining the interest of the Croatian economy. . “We plan business workshops in Shanghai and Guangzhou in China in May, in Pyeongchang in South Korea during the Winter Olympics and then in Tokyo, Japan in cooperation with the Slovenian Tourist Board. Also, in April, we are planning a business workshop in Dubai, UAE before the ATM Tourism Fair. If there are not enough companies interested in a business workshop in South Korea and Japan, we will organize a presentation in South Korea during the Olympics, in cooperation with our longtime partner, the Slovenian Tourist Board and in Tokyo at the end of the year. ” stand out from the CNTB.Until then, the planned schedule of Sell Croatia workshops in 2018 is validFor all information and expression of interest for the mentioned workshops / fairs and proposals for the organization of workshops in some other distant markets, you can contact the CNTB directly by e-mail. [email protected] . See a list of all Sell workshops here NEW CONCEPT AND CREATIVE SOLUTION FOR CNTB’S APPEARANCE AT FAIRS SELECTEDIn May, the Croatian National Tourist Board set out to select a new concept and creative solution for appearances at tourism fairs, and the selection itself was carried out with the help of the Croatian Design Society (HDD), which conducted a public call for competition.A special Commission of the Ministry of Tourism, the Croatian Tourist Board and a member of the Tourist Council, taking into account the functionality, estimated costs of production, previous experience and multifunctionality, made the final decision and the work “Connecting diversity and openness ”, Team + Architecture team (Tihana Taraba, Filip Despot, Christian Rendulić), selected for implementation.Selected work Connecting diversity and openness (No. 07) as a key element of recognizability, he proposes an effective “floating” exhibition of photographs within the maximally purified exhibition space. The potential change of types of photographs depending on the exhibition priorities (fair topics) enables a relatively simple and effective intervention in the exhibition space, which still requires additional attention when choosing photographs. The well-organized space, clearly zoned according to the requirements, fits different stand sizes and is easily applicable in different situations stand out from the HDD.See more about the new concept and creative solution of appearances at fairs here: NEW CONCEPT AND CREATIVE SOLUTION FOR CNTB’S APPEARANCE AT FAIRS SELECTED LIST OF FAIRS FOR 2018 PUBLISHEDCNTB has published a list of fairs where it plans to participate in 2018. Compared to 2017, Mostar will be abolished, and after a 3-year break, a performance at the MATKA fair in Helsinki is planned again.
