The seventh international travel show Place2Go opened in the Zagreb Arena on Friday, attracting over 200 exhibitors from Croatia and 20 other countries. Opening the show, State Secretary for Tourism Frano Matušić emphasised the importance of exhibitions like this for promoting cooperation in the tourism sector and learning about new trends, innovations and new destinations.
The organiser Damjana Domanovac said she was pleasantly surprised by a considerably larger number of exhibitors than last year, adding that she expected more than last year’s 15,000 visitors.
Among the travel destinations being promoted for the first time were Zanzibar, Ivory Coast and the Seychelles. The exhibition was accompanied by various events such as panel discussions and prize competitions, including one organised by Turkish Airlines which is celebrating 20 years of operation in Croatia.
