Q: What do you love about meetings?
The meeting industry is creative and dynamic business, which suits my character. By designing innovative incentive and corporate meeting programs throughout Croatia, I can demonstrate my professional knowledge, international experience and of course my creative side.

Q: Your tips for the perfect event?
To organise a perfect event, it is first important to select a great, unusual venue. Experienced DMC with extensive local expertise and a network of partners can assist meeting planners in designing creative programs. On the other hand, it is great when meeting planners are curious, looking for new ideas and of course have a generous budget to realize their desires.

Q: Why organise meeting in your city/hotel?
While Intours DMC Croatia organises meetings and events throughout Croatia, I would like to draw meeting planners’ attention to the Island of Hvar. Crowned as the sunniest island in Europe and the only island in the world with four UNESCO heritages, Hvar is the place to see. Hvar’s glamorous legacy for having the best of everything is well deserved – from the best beach parties in Europe to fabulous free climbing, sea kayaking and off road adventures.

Q: The most memorable event for you?
In my … years career, two memorable events stand out. The first is a Renaissance Dinner Event we organised for 145 guests who enjoyed 17th century Hvar, with traditional music, artists and dance. The second is the first gay weeding in Croatia that was disguised as a birthday party. I found out its true purpose from national press discussing the first gay wedding in Croatia.
