Numerous topics will be treated during two days of the event, from the future of cruise sector in the area to the new investment plans for the nautical one, from the relaunch of the ferry vacation to the combination between sustainability and the economic and occupational growth. A specific focus will be dedicated to sea tourism in Croatia, with the aims to be achieved in the coming years in the light of the numerous development projects currently under way or recently completed.
