This possibility of connecting and establishing further cooperation and expanding our market through a network of travel agencies is extremely important to us. The arrival of 15 leading travel agents in our county is a great opportunity to promote the destination, the presentation of our tourism entities and opens the door for future cooperation. pointed out Maja Jakobović Vukušić, director of the Požega-Slavonia County Tourist Board.Thus, local tourist boards and receptive tourist agencies of Požega-Slavonia County had a direct opportunity to present all tourist programs, contents and autochthonous stories. Slavonia does not need help, but strategic development, and it is in tourism that great potential lies. The first step is to get to know and experience Slavonia, and to bring tourists in order, so that Slavonia can be sold as a tourist destination with the aim of generating tourist arrivals and overnight stays, and creating tourist consumption that is the basis for better and better tourism development. And travel agencies have an important role in selling and branding destinations. In addition to 198 regular members who provide services of travel agencies and tour operators, UHPA brings together 107 associate members from the hotel industry, transportation, vocational education and other institutions and associations related to tourism. In total, the UHPA logo, as a sign of trust and quality, is found at 456 member outlets.Photo: UHPAAfter visiting only one part of the county, UHPA President Tomislav Fain pointed out that he will definitely have to return to Požega-Slavonia County to be able to see the entire offer. “After these two working days of the visit, all seen, I hope that we will include a part of your offer in the offers of our agencies, try to sell it to our fellow citizens and guests coming from European countries. It’s nice to see it moving forward. The Association of Croatian Travel Agencies works closely with the Ministry of Tourism and the Croatian National Tourist Board. I believe that we, through this joint cooperation, can contribute to the tourism development and promotion of your county. ”  said UHPA President Tomislav Fain.By the way, UHPA has publicly supported the initiative to hold the Days of Croatian Tourism in Slavonia, and announced that the Days of UHPA in 2019 will be held in Slavonia.
