A Special Presentation Of Zagreb’s Tourist Offer Was Held In Kuala Lumpur

In organization by the Zagreb Tourist Board (ZTB) a special presentation Zagreb/Croatia: Connect & Experience was held in Kuala Lumpur on October 31, where the tourist offer of Zagreb and Croatia was presented. A total of 15 Croatian representatives participated in the workshop, of which 11 were representatives of the tourism industry: Atlantis Travel, Carnet de Voyage Tailormade Croatia, Crvena Luka Resort, Happy Tours, Intours DMC, Kompas Hrvatska, Limea, Palma Travel, Permansio Deluxe Getaways, Uniline and Zagreb Tourist Board, Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Croatian National Tourist Board and Turkish Airlines.

Following the presentation, the CEO of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld, said: “I am very proud to point out that ZTB successfully organized, for the first time, the Zagreb/Croatia: Connect & Experience workshop and presentation, in this format, on the Far Eastern market for as many as 40 Malaysian representatives of travel agencies and tour operators and 15 Malaysian journalists related to tourism. After our last week’s presence at the fairs Tourism Expo Japan and ITB Asia, with this special presentation and workshop we successfully concluded our promotion on the Asian market. We presented the leisure and business offer of Zagreb with a special emphasis on Zagreb’s Christmas Market and the cultural segment, which is very interesting for guests from Malaysia, Australia, China, Singapore, Taiwan and other Far Eastern countries. I am particularly pleased that, once again, we are recording the growing interest of travelers in the capital of Croatia. The latest results confirm this, according to which guests from Australia are in the top 10 with 125% more overnights compared to last year, and in the last few months we have noticed an increasing return of guests from South Korea, China, Malaysia and Singapore.”

All participants were warmly greeted by the Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia in Malaysia, H. E. Ivan Velimir Starčević, who said on this occasion: “It was a great pleasure for me to participate in the tourist presentation of Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Croatia in Malaysia, which was attended by the Zagreb Tourist Board, led by the director, Martina Bienenfeld, Croatian National Tourist Board, Dubrovnik Tourist Board and partners. I believe that this is a big step forward for the Croatian tourist offer on the Asian markets and I expect a positive impact on the future influx of tourists from that part of the world.”

In addition to the presentations of Zagreb and other participants, B2B meetings were also held with a noticeable interest in Croatia as a highly sought-after destination, especially from agents looking for advice related to new tours, projects and recommendations. Prizes provided by the Tourist Boards of Zagreba and Dubrovnik and Turkish Airlines were awarded to the luckiest participants of the meetings.
