An important conference connecting Croatia’s diaspora to the Homeland, with tourism very much on the agenda, will take place in Split on May 17-18, as the 2nd International Conference on Diaspora Tourism takes place.
Members of the diaspora have been playing an ever larger role in the development of tourism in Central Dalmatia, and one does not have to look further than the Canadian-Croat, Joe Basic, for an example of how much of an impact can be made.
Basic, who will be a keynote speaker at the conference, is the man behind the Ultra Europe Music Festival, a festival which is not only the biggest event in the Dalmatian capital, but also has promoted the city to all corners of the globe.
The two-day conference will feature heavily successful stories of returnees coming engaged in tourism in Croatia. There will also be plenty of coverage of one of the biggest opportunities for developing Croatian tourism – the medical tourism industry.
The final programme will be published shortly, but you can find out more information and reserve a place on the official conference website.
