Days of Croatian Tourism
Opatija host to 1200 tourism professionals

Opatija, Kvarner's renowned holiday and congress resort, between the 22nd and the 24th of October played host to the Days of Croatian Tourism event. This event brings together many representatives of state and tourism institutions that employ ca. 1200 tourism professionals. This was the occasion to award the most successful individuals, companies and destinations – about 15 of them are from Kvarner.

The three-day event entitled "Days of Croatian Tourism" included several meetings of expert groups and associations of tourism professionals who discussed the actual position of Croatian tourism and made plans for the year 2009. The highlight of the event was the plenary session of tourism professionals and the representatives of the Croatian Government dedicated to the plans in tourism, the way of their realisation, and the necessary measures to overcome the forthcoming economic recession, which will require additional efforts by hotel and tourism companies.
The Days of Croatian Tourism took place in several hotels in Opatija, once again proving the level of professionalism and the ability of the hosts to organise even the most demanding events, such as this meeting of tourism professionals from all over Croatia.
