As Novac/Barbara Ban writes, a look into just how the Croatian tourism sector will develop after the pandemic ends, what awaits the country this season and the impact of the development of transport infrastructure on tourist flows are all topics that will be addressed by traffic and tourism experts this Tuesday.
Starting at 10:00, the “Spring & Tourism Masterclass” conference will be held, organised by Jutarnji list and the Edward Bernays University in Zagreb.
It’s a project which, through a series of scientific-professional round tables, will bring together eminent Croatian and foreign experts and scientists in the field of communication management and tourism, as well as other related individuals, businessmen and various dignitaries from various walks of public life who contribute to the development of these two areas or have a significant impact on them.
After the introductory presentation of the director of the Institute of Tourism, Damir Kresic, two round tables will be held. The first will be on the topic of post-pandemic tourism, and will be given by Kristjan Stanicic, the director of the Main Office of the Croatian National Tourist Board, Josipa Jutt Ferlan, the director of the Hilton Hotel Cluster, Tomislav Fain, the president of the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies, Kresimir Dabo, the head of tourism (Bernays), and Damir Kresic, the director of the Institute of Tourism.
After that, a panel discussion will be held on the topic of the importance of transport infrastructure for the development of Croatian tourism and the participants will be Transport Minister Oleg Butkovic, doc. dr. sc. Marko Slavulj, the head of the Department of Urban Transport Technology at the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering in Zagreb, Boris Huzjan, the director of HAC, and Djuro Lubura, an eminent expert in new technologies. That round table will be chaired by journalist Kresimir Zabec.
The conference will be held live at the Edward Bernays University in Zagreb without the presence of an audience due to the unfavourable epidemiological situation. Everyone interested in the future of the Croatian tourism sector can follow it live on Jutarnji.hr and on the social media platforms of the aforementioned higher education institution.
