SMART TOURISM: First Croatian Virtual Tourism Conference Coming Next Week

Croatia's first virtual tourism conference, SMART TOURISM, will discuss ideas for Croatian tourism's future.

Coronavirus has seen almost everything grind to a halt, and for Croatia, with tourism making up around 20 percent of GDP and being by far the most important economic branch, the pandemic could have potentially devastating effects. Thankfully, the country has handled it remarkably well, and now it's time to look at what the future holds for the country's hugely interrupted tourism sector in the post-pandemic world.

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes on the 30th of April, 2020, participation in Croatia's very first virtual tourism conference was confirmed by experts from Croatia and from Croatia's important broadcasting markets.

The first professional virtual conference on tourism in Croatia, called Meet up: SMART TOURISM 5.0, will be held on Tuesday, May the 5th, 2020 and will bring together experts from here in Croatia and from abroad to share information and experiences about doing business during and after the coronavirus pandemic. They will also look at new market opportunities for the Republic of Croatia and its tourism in a future smart society.

Conference organiser Can Croatian Tourism 365? in cooperation with the organisers of tourism events - HTI Health Tourism Conference, International Tourism Fair PLACE2GO and Taste the Mediterranean festival, will talk with experts in the tourism and hospitality sector, as well as travel writers and influencers, who will convey the current trends and combine local and international experiences, give ideas and projections for the future way of doing business, and discuss how to prepare for tomorrow's tourism, following the coronavirus crisis caused by months of isolation and the interruption of all international and indeed domestic travel.

Participation in the SMART TOURISM conference was confirmed by experts from here in Croatia and its important broadcasting markets, and it will be interesting to see the coming together of ideas and plans for what awaits Croatian tourism in the post-coronavirus age, as the world becomes more digital, more distanced, and more cautious.
