Croatia is an “in” destination with Austrians this year. After the largest Austrian travel fair “Vacations 2018” was held from the 11th to the 14th of January in Vienna the feedback from the exhibition is positive.
The "Vacations 2018" Fair (Ferienmesse) is the largest and most visited tourist fair in Austria, and this year included 850 exhibitors from over eighty countries. Croatia was present with the Croatian National Tourist Board, along with twelve other tourist companies and organisations from Croatia, on a large stand.
"Croatia, Italy and Spain are in fashion this year," commented Helga Freund from the Vienna Tourist Office, marking the fair as a tourist barometer for this year. She added that "Initial reservations from the Austrian market to Croatia confirm the continuation of the upward trend and the interest of media, business partners and visitors was very large."
Croatia was visited by more than 1.4 million tourists from Austria last year, who realized more than 7.6 million overnight stays.
