BALKAN CONGRESS PEARL

COMPARISON WITH THE REGION

One of the main Macedonian tourist centres is becoming increasingly more important as a meeting centre. At first glance, it differs from competing for regional destinations due to its reasonable prices. The difference is also in the structure of the offer which is primarily adapted to leisure tourism. Ohrid is, in summer, a mass tourist destination with all the challenges that that brings. Out of season, it can be a very interesting meeting destination if rapid development will be followed by the upgraded offer that congress guests expect. The first step is related to the performance of providers and the establishment of a Convention Bureau.

*ACI Europe Airport Connectivity (higher is better) is based on the SEO NetScan connectivity model, which measures airport connectivity in a more comprehensive way. It measures the number and quality of direct/non-stop connections as well as indirect connections via other airports. The NetScan model brings the most relevant connection components of every single market (frequency, travel time, connecting time) together into a single indicator: the Airport Connectivity Index. Find out more at www.aci-europe.org.
