How the Tourist Boards of Southern Istria read a small lesson about tourism

first_imgTourism connects various industries vertically and horizontally, and in the whole tourist mosaic, of course if we talk about strategic and sustainable development, a lot of people, products, services and details participate. Each cube in the mosaic is extremely important, no matter how small, because without it the mosaic is not complete.The Tourist Board of Southern Istria (Pula, Vodnjan, Medulin, Fažana, Ližnjan, Marčana Barban) has shown a standard that we must all strive for in tourism, a small but important piece of the tourist mosaic, and this small cube is called poster design. not so much the poster design itself, as the information on the poster for the event South on 2 wheels, six bike races intended to popularize cycling and presentation of bike trails in southern Istria, in several languages, more precisely in Croatian, English and Italian.If we know that most tourists are foreigners, shouldn’t it be logical and natural for tourist information to be in English? From museums, tourist information, exhibitions, various shops, written prices of products and services in kunas and euros, as well as posters for various contents and events that take place in the destination?We constantly talk about quality content, but if a tourist does not know about it, he cannot even consume it.Two years ago, at Advent in Zagreb, I saw so many posters from various events that were announced or in progress, but no poster is in English, although the content itself is intended for tourists or a foreign music group. And Zagreb certainly started living from tourism. This is the responsibility of the entire destination, ie all participants, and we must think about communication in order to inform tourists, and thus increase their consumption, which directly increases the satisfaction of tourists and by increasing tourist spending.Such a small but extremely important detail, isn’t it?Something that should be normal and always in our tourist destinations, especially those marine ones that live exclusively from tourism for years, but unfortunately in our destinations communication in English is a rarity.Also, there is a great responsibility in tourist destinations, through education and communication to the local community and the organizers of various events. First and foremost, it is necessary to start from yourself and lay the foundations, ie set an example for others, as well as when the Tourist Board co-finances or participates as a partner in organizing an event, it must set the standard for posters and communication in English.We must also communicate in English, and provide such important quality information to our tourists, of course if we want to deal with the development of tourism.A small but important lesson from tourism.Attachment:SOUTH on 2 wheels POSTER 1SOUTH on 2 wheels POSTER 2last_img read more
