We are optimistic about this project and if a larger number of partners with the same vision gather around this idea. Croatia is definitely a regional tourist superpower and we must use this circumstance to impose ourselves as a leader in the outgoing offer with a regional origin in Croatia. The first B2B workshop of VisitUSA Croatia under the auspices of BRAND USA seems like a small step in that direction, but all travelers know that even the longest journey begins with the first step”Concluded Goran Rihtarić, Executive Chairman of the Board of VisitUSA Croatia. For the first time, Croatia is in the plan of activities of the umbrella tourist organization of the USA – BRAND USA, and for the first time in Croatia, a business workshop VisitUSA Croatia was held.
