400 American travel agents are coming to Croatia

first_imgIt is a unique opportunity to position both Dubrovnik and our entire tourism on the American market. An opportunity not to be missed. In December, about 400 American travel agents are expected to arrive in Croatia as part of the ASTA Destination EXPO 2020, which will be held in Dubrovnik from December 03rd to 07th. Americans are the second most numerous in Dubrovnik According to the eVisitor tourist check-in and check-out system, not including nautical data, Dubrovnik generated 2019 million arrivals in 1,44 – 13 percent more than in 2018, and 4,4 million overnight stays, which is 6 percent more than the year before. . ASTA is the largest association of travel agents in the world with over 12 travel agents in the United States alone, and they have a major impact on travel trends. ASTA “Destination Expo” is a conference held once a year outside the United States with the aim of promoting the host country, and this year it is Croatia. During the meeting, a fair will be organized, as well as business meetings where it will be possible to directly negotiate deals in the sale of arrangements in the United States.  Photo: Pixabay.com The Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, emphasized that this is the first time that such a conference has been held in Croatia, and that it is extremely important that it takes place in December. “I certainly expect even better interest and the arrival of American tourists after the ASTA, which is one of our most important markets. With the direct US-Dubrovnik airline we have, we can certainly expect growth in arrivals from the US market in the future. ” Director of HIT Dalmatia, Jurica Glavina presented the working part of the conference, Trade Show, but also B2B, where participants will be able to directly negotiate business and thus increase the number of visits to Croatia, and said that they will work on the strategic goals of Croatian tourism.center_img That this is a great opportunity for Croatia’s positioning on the American market is sufficiently indicated by the fact that after the ASTA Destination Expo in Greece, 60% of tourist growth from the USA was recorded. The official organizers of the event are ASTA and AmCro Travel in partnership with the City of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board as sponsors, and partners the Croatian National Tourist Board, the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Tourist Board, HIT Dalmatia and Elite Travel. Robert Duglin, Vice President of ASTA, pointed out that Dubrovnik and Croatia are high on their list, because Croatia offers a lot, from wine, food to history. “During the conference, American agents will learn how to sell Croatia as a destination, and stressed that it is an association with more than twelve thousand members, realizing 83% of sales of all trips in the United States and 60% of trips outside the United States.Duglin pointed out. Miro Drašković, Commercial Director of Elite Travel, emphasized that the American market is the most desirable market and that participants will spend almost two weeks, before and after the conference, on trips throughout Croatia, from Dubrovnik and Konavle to Advent in Zagreb, “truffle hunting” and cheese tasting in Istria. The most numerous tourists in Dubrovnik in 2019 were traditionally British, followed by guests from the USA, Germany, France and Spain.

Angels send struggling rookie Jose Suarez to Triple-A

first_imgJustin Anderson, who is on the injured list because of a right upper trap strain, said his progress stalled. “I think we hit a small wall on Friday,” Anderson said. Anderson said he still feels stiff and some tingling when he moves his arm a certain way. …JC Ramírez decided to accept the Angels’ outright assignment to Triple-A rather than becoming a free agent. The Angels wanted to send Ramírez down to try to regain his velocity after Tommy John surgery, but Ramírez is out of options, so he needed to clear waivers and then agree to the minor league assignment. …Andrelton Simmons, who is out with a sprained ankle and a bone bruise, will continue to take ground balls and swing a bat, but he is not expected to be activated until sometime after the upcoming week-long trip.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Dillon Peters, 3-1, 3.38) at Rangers (LHP Kolby Allard, 1-0, 4.50), 5:05 p.m., Fox Sports West Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros ANAHEIM — The Angels finally decided that 21-year-old José Suarez would be better served refining his game in the minors than continuing to struggle in the majors.Suarez, who had a 6.75 ERA in 12 games, was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday, a day after his latest shaky outing.Although the Angels have a string of off days upcoming, Manager Brad Ausmus said this move was not simply about roster management.“We wanted him to work on some things, and it’s easier to work on things down there than it is up here,” Ausmus said. “It wasn’t just the off days.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img One of Suarez’s issues had been tipping his pitches. The Angels found two separate ways in which Suarez had been tipping his pitches. They were somewhat encouraged that he was able to correct one of them during Saturday’s game. He gave up four runs in four innings, but none in the last two.“Quite frankly I told him to stand in front of a mirror and do it in the hotel room when he’s traveling, just get it ingrained in his brain so he doesn’t have to think about it while he’s trying to execute pitches during the game,” Ausmus said.Suarez also had an issue with getting into trouble after there were two outs. He allowed opponents to hit .353 with an 1.193 OPS with two outs.“I think sometimes there’s a little bit of a letdown when you get to two outs and you’re almost out of the inning,” Ausmus said. “I don’t know if that’s the case with Suary, but you have to concentrate all the way through the end of the inning. There can be letdown, especially at a young age, when you get to two outs.”Suarez’s demotion comes just as the Angels are beginning a stretch in which they have four off days in the next 15 days, which gives them some leeway with their rotation. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros The Angels have scheduled Dillon Peters to pitch on Monday in Texas, and Andrew Heaney for one of the games of the doubleheader on Tuesday. Patrick Sandoval is scheduled for the series finale on Wednesday.Jaime Barría, who will have been down for the required 10 days by Tuesday, is likely to come up to pitch one of the games of the doubleheader.The Angels recalled left-hander Miguel Del Pozo to take Suarez’s roster spot. The Angels acquired Del Pozo last week in a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers. A 26-year-old left-hander, Del Pozo had never played in the majors with either of his first two organizations, the Miami Marlins or Rangers. He owns a career 4.28 ERA in the minors, with 10.4 strikeouts per nine innings.ALSOMike Trout got the day off on Sunday, the first time he had not been in the lineup since missing most of four games from July 14-17 with a mild right calf strain. Trout had started 28 straight games since then, completing all but one of them. Ausmus said he felt Sunday was a good time for an off day because of the upcoming doubleheader in Texas. …Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield last_img read more
