Many world media covered the UGP action and the #CroatiaIsSafe campaign

first_imgLast week, Croatian tourist workers, caterers and entrepreneurs gathered through the Voice of Entrepreneurs Association decided to react in an affirmative way and send a positive message to the world that holidays in Croatia are safe. Poruka je došla do onih kojima je bila namijenjena – kako turistima tako i stranim medijamima, u prvom redu njemački i austrijski mediji, da prošire glas o Lijepoj našoj kao sigurnoj turistikoj destinaciji. Croatian tourism professionals: Holidays in Croatia are safe The timely communication of the Ministry of Tourism, and especially the CNTB, was lacking and what little we could expect from the season was called into question, UGP points out, adding that this was the motive for the UGP Tourism and Catering Committee to form a press release in which they stressed that tourism workers adhere to all safety recommendations and that Croatia is safe for vacation.–30859445 The importance of this UGP statement was recognized and published by many media in Germany and Austria, but also beyond. The announcement was published by more than fifteen influential foreign tourism media mostly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Below are just some of the links to posts related to the UGP press release and action Holidays in Croatia are safe! #CroatiaIsSafe ROUNDUP / After the lockdown, Croatian Tourism is located in Meltdown / / / CROATIAN TOURIST EMPLOYEES SEND A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD: HOLIDAYS IN CROATIA ARE SAFE After the tennis tournament in Zadar and the articles in the foreign media about the corona hotspot on the Croatian coast, UGP decided to react, and so they sent a message to the world: Holidays in Croatia are safe! #CroatiaIsSafe “Kad se za promociju hrvatskog turizma na našim emitivnim tržištima ne brine HTZ koja ima  državnu organizaciju, dvadesetak ureda u Europi i svijetu  i “samo“ 319 lokalnih zajednica po Hrvatskoj, onda poduzetnici sami moraju uzeti stvar u svoje ruke kako bi spasili i radna mjesta i sezonu! Pitamo se koliko plaćamo urede HTZ-a u Njemačkoj i drugim državama Europe te što to oni točno rade za promociju hrvatskog turizma?” said Drazen Orescanin, executive director of the Voice of Entrepreneurs Association. “Želimo prenijeti poruku svim medijima u svijetu i Hrvatskoj da se hrvatski turistički djelatnici i ugostitelji drže preporuka i propisa vezanih za sprečavanje širenja korona virusa i pozivamo sve turiste da dođu u Hrvatsku te države EU da ne zatvaraju granice prema Hrvatskoj. Mi smo ozbiljni i profesionalni” said Gordana Fabijanić from the Committee for Tourism and Catering of UGP. read more
