first_imgUnder the slogan “The most beautiful Croatian secret”, a two-day event was successfully held in Munich on April 18 and 19, with the aim of promoting the tourist offer of certain Slavonian destinations.This is an event that was held in cooperation with the German tour operator ID Riva Tours, the Branch Office of the Croatian Tourist Board in Munich and with the support of Münchner Merkur tz as a media sponsor. “We are pleased that the promotional activities that we carry out with the aim of positioning the Croatian continental tourist offer meet with excellent reactions from the audience, ie our foreign partners, but also potential tourists. Germany is one of our most important emitting markets from which we generate the largest tourist traffic, which is why we see great potential for Croatia’s continental offer. I am convinced of the excellent results of the entire tourism sector this year, and especially the continent of our country, which for many tourists is still an undiscovered treasure.”, said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić.During the first evening, or April 18 at the restaurant “Gasthof in der Au”, located in Starnberg near Munich, was held “Evening of Croatian Tourism Ambassadors”, which brought together young and successful business people of Croatian origin who were introduced to certain Slavonian destinations, ie the tourist offer and sights such as music, food, wine, but also souvenirs. “We presented the pearls to the Bavarians, which is still a kind of secret. Slavonia has a heart, warmth, excellent gastronomy and it must be a project that we will promote together. Most importantly, group, but also individual booking to Slavonian destinations has started. The cycling tour from September 22 to 29 of 100 people is full. In the last two years, a lot has been done in the promotion of Slavonia, and these results are a motive for everyone to continue working” said Selimir Ognjenović, owner of the German tour operator ID Riva Tours, adding that he was glad that at the wedding of the year, the one between Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle, wine from Slavonia, a Traminer from Ilok cellars, would be served.Photo: Vukovar-Srijem Tourist BoardOn the second day, ie April 19, in the center of Munich, in the premises of Münchner Merkur tz, the most widely read daily newspaper in Bavaria, a presentation of individual Slavonian destinations, ie their tourist offer, was held. The presentation was attended by the City of Požega and the Tourist Board of the City of Požega, the City of Ilok, Ilok Cellars, Winery Kutjevo, Winery Brzica, Zlatni lug and others.The presentation gathered a large number of guests, including business entities, so the Croatian participants had a unique opportunity to meet with the most prominent tourism players in Bavaria. This primarily refers to the tour operator ID Riva Tours, which in the main catalog for 2018 has an offer of Slavonian tourist entities on 10 pages, which is also the first time that a German catalog has an offer of Slavonia and Baranja.”We are pleased to present to the Bavarians, in addition to the already well-known parts of Croatia, Dalmatia and Istria, for the first time, continental tourism by promoting the destination of Slavonia, our most beautiful tourist secrets.” commented the head of the CNTB branch in Munich, Nera Miličić.The CNTB points out that during the evening, in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the guests were announced the Vina Croatia project, which will include a three-day event at the Wittelsbacher Platz in Munich in May. The traditional positioning of Slavonia on the German market will be contributed by the traditional trip “Leserreise”, which Münchner Merkur is organizing for its readers this year in two terms, in June and September. In addition, the Bavarian Radio and Television – Bayerische Rundfunk, leased a seven-day trip in September with a large bicycle tour of Slavonia for its viewers and listeners. Until the event in September, the package will be intensively advertised through reports, radio spots, newsletters and brochures.Related news:NEW VISUAL IDENTITY OF THE CITY OF POŽEGA – HILLS & VALLEYS PRESENTEDDESTINATION “VUKOVAR – VUČEDOL – ILOK” DECLARED “EUROPEAN DESTINATION OF EXCELLENCE” (EDEN) </p>
