As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, under the auspices of the Croatian Ministry of Tourism and Sport and with the support of the Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ), the Zagreb Tourist Board and other partners, the thirrd National Congress Exchange MEETEX 2021 was recently held, connecting international buyers with key stakeholders in the Croatian congress industry as interest in Croatian congress destinations continues to rise.
MEETEX is being held in two parts in this pandemic-dominated year, there was a virtual B2B exchange during the month of March, and study visits are planned for the best rated customers in the second half of the year.
Interested international buyers were presented with all the advantages and contents of Croatia as a congress and incentive destination, there were more than 160 participants interested in Croatian congress destinations which stretch all the way from Istria down to the extreme south of Dalmatia.
“We supported MEETEX as an event unique in the fact that it enables the presentation of the entire Croatian congress and incentive offer. I’m particularly pleased that, despite the ongoing global pandemic and the continued atmosphere of uncertainty, there has been exceptional interest in Croatian congress destinations from as many as sixty international buyers.
This shows the great strength and resilience of the congress industry in this country and raises hopes that, as soon as the circumstances allow for it, congresses, incentive trips and other business events will return to Croatia, for which the representatives of the Croatian congress industry have the greatest credit. The congress industry is extremely important for the overall development, not only of Croatian tourism, but also of the economy in general,” said Minister Nikolina Brnjac.
