Hvar Tourist Boards have united! Signed an agreement on the separation of local tourist boards in the area of ​​the island of Hvar

first_imgWith this agreement, the current tourist boards, which include the Tourist Boards of Hvar, Stari Grad, Jelsa, Sucuraj and Vrbovska, will develop joint projects and programs and implement joint promotional and marketing activities, and jointly develop and promote the entire island of Hvar.  An agreement on the association of local tourist boards in the area of ​​the island of Hvar was signed in the town of Hvar today. Hvar Tourist Board – Wow how nice it sounds. Finally, because the synergy and branding of regions, and especially islands, is the only logical one, and not that there are x tourist communities on one island that do not cooperate and each develops its own tourism. Crazy and counter productive. The signing of the agreement was also attended by the Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli, who pointed out that today the foundations for mutual cooperation have been laid and the beginning of a new story for the entire island of Hvar. “With this agreement, the island of Hvar becomes a complete story in terms of tourism, a tourist destination that can be better developed and promoted under one name and brand. This agreement is an example of what we wanted through our legislative changes, to encourage the association of destinations that work together to have a much better position in the market and develop projects that will stimulate overall economic development. Numerous synergy effects should result from this, not only in the quality of market performance in the entire area, but also in the much-needed cost efficiency in the field of project promotion and implementation.. ” pointed out Minister Cappelli during the signing of the agreement.  According to data from the eVisitor system, the island of Hvar was visited by 338.000 guest tourists last year, who spent 1,7 million nights. Guests from Slovenia, Germany, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Poland and the United States spent the most nights.  Do you want market development or the status quo and stagnation? That’s the only question you have to ask yourself. If you want to move forward, then synergy and association is the only right path. There is no alternative. It should be reminded that with the adoption of the package of tourist laws in the Croatian Parliament this year, ie the Law on Tourist Boards and Promotion of Croatian Tourism, the Law on Membership in Tourist Boards and the Law on Tourist Tax, financial instruments were introduced (Fund for Underdeveloped Tourism and Continent and united tourist boards) which enable more transparent financing of both regional and local tourist boards in underdeveloped tourist areas and encourage the association of tourist boards.  This is news that should have been published at least 10 years ago, but better late than never. I hope that this move will encourage other islands (Rab, Krk, Brač, etc. da) to understand that only with synergy and one brand can they move forward. It has nothing to do with politics, but exclusively with market development. News of the year! Incredibly! Finally! Unreal! Synergy is possible! – so we could put the title (that we are a click byte medium), but in this case the news that the tourist boards on the island of Hvar have joined can certainly bear the aforementioned epithets. The signing of the Agreement on Association of Local Tourist Boards of the Island of Hvar was attended by the President of the Hvar Tourist Board Rikardo Novak, President of the Old Town Tourist Board Antonio Škarpa, President of the Jelsa and Vrboska Tourist Board Nikša Peronja and President of the Sućuraj Tourist Board Ivan Slavić. and signed a joint agreement, last_img read more

City trio laid low by illness

first_imgSergio Aguero, David Silva and Samir Nasri were sent home ill as Manchester City suffered a minor fitness scare ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season. But the problems are not thought to be serious and all three are expected to return to training ahead of next Monday’s Barclays Premier League opener at West Brom. Aguero sent a video message to the supporters at Wednesday’s event saying: “Sorry I can’t be there, I don’t feel well. I will be back soon.” Aguero, City’s top scorer last season with 32 goals from 41 appearances, might not be a definite starter at The Hawthorns anyway after returning late to training following his involvement in the Copa America. Manager Manuel Pellegrini last year eased the 27-year-old back into action after his World Cup exploits with Argentina. He started the first two league games on the bench and Pellegrini could adopt a similarly cautious approach this term with his prize asset, who has a history of muscle injury problems. New midfield signing Fabian Delph is doubtful for the opener after suffering a hamstring injury just 18 minutes into his debut in the pre-season friendly against Real Madrid in Melbourne a fortnight ago. Delph, who initially rejected a move to City before signing in an £8million deal, gave an upbeat update on his condition at City Live. The 25-year-old said: “Not the best debut but things can only get better from there. I’m feeling great now. The recovery is going well. We’ve got a great medical team here and I’m flying at the minute, so I am looking forward to coming back.” Captain Vincent Kompany also delivered an optimistic message to an audience of around 3,000 fans at the Manchester Central exhibition centre. City are hoping to reclaim the title after surrendering the crown to Chelsea last term. Kompany said: “The squad has been working really hard and you can tell we have improved. In training the level has increased. There have been a lot of hard sessions. We are going to go to the wire and be ready for the new season. It has to be a good one for us. “This club has to grow always. The future has to be bright. With this team we will keep improving and this club will keep growing, and we will be on top.” The trio complained of stomach bugs during training on Wednesday and were told to go home by a club doctor. That meant they were also unable to attend the club’s ‘City Live’ season launch party, where Aguero was due to pick up the 2014-15 player of the year award, in central Manchester in the evening. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
