ZAGREB, March 2, 2020 – The ninth international travel show Place2Go will take place in Zagreb’s Arena sports hall on 13-15 March, with over 200 exhibitors from some 20 countries expected to attend, slightly more than last year, the organisers announced at a press conference on Monday.
“This year is particularly challenging because of the coronavirus situation, but for now everything is going as planned. We have had one cancellation only, by Macedonia, because they are following the recommendation not to travel abroad,” the travel show’s director Damjana Domanovac said, adding that they were in close contact with the national coronavirus crisis management authority.
She said they expected about 230 companies to attend the show, compared with 210 last year, mostly from Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. “This year new exhibitors are Argentina, Cuba, Montenegro and Albania, who will present their destinations. Exhibitors from Indonesia and India will be present this year as well through their respective embassies.”
Domanovac said that this year there were no exhibitors from Italy, China and other countries with large numbers of coronavirus cases. She added that following the cancellation of the world’s largest travel show ITB Berlin, the Place2Go fair would be a good chance for professional visitors from Croatia and the region to establish new contacts and close new deals.
