Press Release MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020


Press release
MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020 a successfull international event organised by the Enterprise Europe Network

Tourism and connected services belong to dynamic fields that significantly contribute to national economies. Therefore it is prioritised by the European Union and consequently also by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) – originally European, nowadays worldwide – network aimed to help small and medium-sized businesses.

Since the EEN partners follow trends and listen to their clients, they decided to organise a b2b event. A good opportunity to arrange such meetings for companies in tourism came with the International Tourism Trade Fair Holiday World held in mid February in Praha, Czechia.

The first edition of the MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020 was organised by the Centre for Regional Development of the Czech Republic together with other EEN colleagues, with full support of ABF, a.s. that is the organiser of the Holiday World fair. The b2b event was intended for companies and stakeholders in tourism. Not only travel agencies and tour operators but also accommodation facilities, restaurants, spa and wellness resorts, health tourism, cycling and agrotourism were represented at the venue. Not to forget to mention companies offering IT (smart) solutions and apps.

As the simultaneous event was Heritage – Museums – Crafts, there were held single meetings for companies active in various crafts, mostly of interest of Czech and German companies. 

When speaking about MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020: prior the event came applications from 120 firms and stakeholders from all over the world. Eventually 100 companies from 26 countries actively participated in the event who together made about 220 official and tens of unofficial face-to-face meetings.

Such events would be not successful without support of other partners: firstly, to appreciate the assistance of ABF, a.s. that promoted the event and provided premises and free entrance tickets. Secondly, to appreciate the EEN partners from various countries who encouraged their clients to be in.

21 EEN partners – members of the Sector group Tourism & Cultural Heritage – assisted their clients in Praha. Meeting of the sector group members was also one of the accompanying events of the fair.

During the whole fair, companies (visitors and exhibitors) could visit the stand of the EEN and consult their business issues, not only towards tourism & cultural heritage.

The first edition of the MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020 was successful. According to the survey made instantly after the meetings, the gained contact details of the newly met potential partners were very perspective - almost 70 per cent of the meetings were rated as “cooperation possible” and 12 meetings were rated as “cooperation agreed”. The rest of the meetings brought exchange of information and only a very limited number of meetings were rated as “not interested”. Highly esteemed was the whole organisation and arrangement of the event, including the assistance before and during the b2b event itself. Members of the above mentioned sector group were also surprised by the scale of the b2b event and of the fair itself.

Some of the participants attended such event for the first time. Not only they appreciated the benefits of b2b meetings: ????• minimum costs • open to visitors and exhibitors • free registration • meet up to 12 business partners according to respective preferences • prior scheduling of meetings • attendance of two interesting fairs at once. The visitors had enough time to visit the fair itself and the exhibitors could invite their partners to their stand.

This type of event is more and more popular among business people.

More information about the MBM TOURISM PRAGUE 2020 including company profiles of the participants please find at http://tourismprague2020.talkb2b.net/.



The successful Holiday World introduced the whole world


The first-ever presentation of traditional tourism fairs at the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition grounds was a great success. Holiday World & Region World offered visitors almost the whole world at one address. The fairs, which took place from 13 to 16 February 2020 under the baton of the organising company, ABF, were enjoyed by 31,217 satisfied visitors.

The Holiday World & Region World International Tourism Fairs are the most important event of their kind not only in the Czech Republic but also in the Central Europe region. “In 2020,  National Tourist Centres from traditional European countries as well as distant destinations such as America, Asia and Africa presented their wares at Holiday World & Region World. Four hundred and eighty-nine exhibitors from forty-six countries presented their exhibits and stalls in the Czech Republic on an exhibition area of 11,270 m². The regions of the Czech Republic also tempted visitors with adventures for tourists and dozens of tour operators and agencies promoted current offers of tours all around the world,” says Martin František Přívětivý, Sales and Marketing Director from the organising company ABF.

Tunisia – partner country of the fair

For 2020, Tunisia was proud to be Holiday World’s partner country. It presented its golden coasts with gradual slopes leading into the sea, a sunny climate, 2.5 to 3 hours’ flight time  from the Czech Republic, a rich variety of sights, delicious cuisine and the hospitality of the locals, making Tunisia one of the most desirable destinations, which was visited by almost 110,000 Czechs in 2019. “As it does every year, this year too the Tunisian National Tourist Office took part in Holiday World. This year, though, as a partner country of this fair for the first time since we have been coming here. We hope that the visitors to the fair enjoyed the performance by the Tunisian music group and the demonstration of Tunisian crafts at our stand,” says Mohamed Oussama Ben Yedder, Director of the Tunisian National Tourist Office.

Discovering the regions across the Czech Republic

As part of a parallel event with the characteristic name Region World, the focus was on the regions of the Czech Republic. The main topic was the ever-popular pastime of hiking. Almost all the regions represented offered the jewels of the regions of the Czech Republic in all their beauty at Region World. The partner region for 2020 was the beautiful South Bohemian Region. “The change of location for the fair was a success. Not only did visitors accept this change and arrive in large numbers, but in terms of the technical facilities and the programme everything was of a quality in keeping with how important the event is. I am very glad that we were involved this year as a partner region and I look forward to continuing our cooperation,” says Ing. Jaromír Polášek, Director of the South Bohemian Tourist Centre.                       

19th annual Prima ZOOM WorldFilm travel festival

The spectacular Prima ZOOM WorldFilm travel festival was again held as part of the accompanying programme. This year it offered visitors the chance to meet adventurers of really high renown. Talks were given, for example, by the adopted member of the Yawalapiti tribe Mnislav Zelený Atapana, the traveller and photographer Jirka Kolbaba, the head of the Czech Institute of Egyptology Professor Miroslav Bárta, the former Czechoslovak mountaineer Dina Štěrbová and many others. “For the first time this year, the travel festival and fair travelled! From Holešovice to Letňany! I’m so glad we didn’t lose our audiences. That they came to us at our new premises. Again, it was true that WorldFilm is mainly a big travel meeting, a holiday at the beginning of the year, where travellers (and not only those giving talks) can meet in one place before they travel around the globe,” says the director and polar explorer Petr Horký, the programme director of Prima ZOOM WorldFilm.

Farewell to the Tatra Around The World 2 expedition team

The fair also offered a special opportunity to say goodbye to the whole Tatra Around The World 2 expedition team. During the whole weekend, visitors to the fair could examine the unique Tatra 815 with their own eyes. The specially modified car, which on 22 February 2020 will follow on from the Tatra expedition around the world from 1987 to 1990. On the main stage the organisers Marek Havlíček and Petr Holeček had lots of interesting things to say about the whole project, including screenings. Stanislav Synek, the last surviving member of the original Tatra Around The World expedition, was also there.

TV faces as part of the fair

Dad on a Trip alias Josef Vrtal from the Autosalon TV show advised visitors on how to travel a considerable distance around the world with young children. The popular presenter and actor Dalibor Gondík shared his experiences of travelling with a caravan in Slovakia with visitors to the fair and also presented his programme In a Caravan Around Slovakia which is shown on Czech Television. As usual, the actor Václav Vydra also took part in the fairs as the fairy-tale king Václav V., called Vydra. Actors from the Palace Theatre, Miroslav Etzler, Martina Hudečková and Ladislav Hampl also had signing at the fairs.

Trips Worth a Million and Expedition Camera

The accompanying programme also included the eleventh annual Expedition Camera Film Festival. And for the eleventh time, visitors were able to compete for Trips Worth a Million. In cooperation with the tourism portal Where in the Czech Republic, the results of voting in the eighth year of the Region of My Heart poll were announced. The South Moravian Region was the overall winner of this poll.

           

Accompanying programme for professionals

A new feature of the fair this year was the first year of Matchmaking Business Meeting Tourism Prague 2020. These B2B meetings between Czech and foreign entrepreneurs were a great success. One hundred and twenty companies and institutions from the Czech Republic, Europe and distant exotic countries from all over the world signed up for the first year of MBM Tourism Prague 2020. Partners for meetings were found by almost 100 participants from 26 countries who held more than 220 bilateral business meetings and dozens of informal meetings.

As part of the accompanying programme, a two-day meeting of the Enterprise Europe Network – Sector Group Tourism and Cultural Heritage was also held. Twenty-one members of this professional sector group came to Prague and they also appreciated the standard of both fairs and were surprised by their size.

The Final Phase of Electronic Sales Records in Tourism conference, which took place on the first day of the fair headed by the Czech Minister of Finance Alena Schillerová, was certainly very interesting and important.

Almost 200 tourism professionals took part in the third annual 360° Travel Trends with the subtitle Rising Stars, or who is shaping the future of the Czech Republic in tourism.

In collaboration with the organisers of Holiday World & Region World, CzechTourism organised the first year of the Media Day networking event. At the event representatives from the thirteen regions of the Czech Republic presented to the media from Russia, Poland, Austria, Germany, Slovakia and Benelux a selection of the most interesting places for the upcoming tourist season.          

The Taste of Travelling

The Taste of Travelling food festival was also a big hit with visitors. It was organised by the traveller Karel Wolf in collaboration with the Around the World festival and the organizers of Holiday World. People had the opportunity to taste gastronomic specialties from Mexico, Indonesia, Venezuela, Italy, Armenia, Georgia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Spain, Congo and other countries.                              

Let’s give the past a future

Holiday World & Region World also joined forces with the Monuments – Museums – Crafts fairs in a lovely way. Thanks to this collaboration, there was an amazing and logical synergy between monuments and tourism, as the most interesting historic sights in the country, including churches, were presented at the event which was under the auspices of the Czech Ministry of Culture. Finally, it is important to emphasise that these quality fairs, i.e. Holiday World & Region World and Monuments – Museums – Crafts, could be enjoyed by visitors with just a single ticket.

INDONESIA - country of diversity


Ultimate in Diversity

Over 17,000 islands spreading between the pacific and Indian Ocean; More than 200 ethnic groups with over 300 spoken languages bridging the continents of Asia and Australia; a multitude of amazing landscapes and biodiversity stretching along the equator line; this is Indonesia, a land of endless spectacular wonders!

As the largest archipelagic country in the world, Indonesia is blessed with so many different people, cultures, customs, traditions, artworks, food, animals, plants, landscapes, and everything that made it almost like 100 (or even 200) countries melted beautifully into one. Every island here is a unique mixture of natural splendors and different cultures of people who live upon it; from the vibrant tourists’ paradises of Bali and Lombok to the mysteriously shrouded cultures of the Asmat in Papua and those who dwell the highlands of Toraja in South Sulawesi.

Situated at the heart of the world’s precious coral triangle and along the Ring of Fire, Indonesia’s countless wonders stretches from mountain tops all the way to the bottom of its vast seas. Along the diverse landscapes, various unique wildlife made the archipelago their only natural habitat including the legendary Komodo Dragons, the gentle giant Orangutan, the majestic Cendrawasih Bird of Paradise, and so much more. Beyond the surface of the sea, Indonesia’s extensive coral reef is regarded as the richest and most diverse in the world; simply the ultimate paradise for divers and underwater enthusiasts.

With rich history that dates back for centuries, Indonesia also holds some of the most fascinating monuments of human civilization. Among these is the imposing Borobudur Temple in Magelang, Central Java which the largest Buddhist monument that still stood majestically today with all its spectacular features. Equally fascinating is the Prambanan Temple Compounds which is one of the biggest in Southeast Asia.

The ever-intriguing, ever-intoxicating land holds some of the greatest adventures you will ever experience on the face of the earth. With all its abundance splendors, it would take a lifetime to explore all the wonders of the archipelago, and still left you craving for more. As the country of the ultimate in Diversity, there’s sure everything for everyone here.

Welcome to Wonderful Indonesia!



Discover the beauty of Herzegovina - Neretva Canton


Mostar

A city which "wakes up with light for centuries"

The city of Mostar is the cultural, political and financial centre of Herzegovina. Already with the first encounter with this beautiful city, you will feel its diversity which makes it so special. Its charm rests in its streets interwoven with the spirit of many different civilizations which have dwelled here, the spirit felt in its numerous young and hospitable people and its architecture. This university centre of the region has always been and has remained the city of bridges and the city of youth.

Ivo Andric, world famous Nobel Prize winner once wrote: "When you spend a night in Mostar, it is not the sound that wakes you up in the morning, but - the light". Mostar is the city of flowers and greenery, famous for its blossom celebrated so many times by poets and poems, flowering sometimes as early as February and creating a strikingly beautiful and dreamy image that can offer only inspiration. Mostar has a very particular and pleasant Mediterranean climate that can be rarely found elsewhere. It lies at a distance of only 60 km from the Adriatic Sea.

In the city itself and in its vicinity there are many unique locations with historical and cultural treasures the most prominent being the Old Bridge, made of stone and dating back to the Middle Ages, which joins the left and the right bank of the Herzegovinian pearl - the river Neretva. There is some historical evidence testifying to the fact that life has continued in this region since pre-historic times. The oldest written document mentioning Mostar dates back to the 15th century.

As a city, Mostar has a complete urban infrastructure, road and railway transport and a modern airport. A number of beautiful parks, sports terrains, museums, galleries and clubs make it an ideal place for living offering people positive excitement that stays in their memory for long time.

Medjugorje

Place of prayer and peace

Medjugorje is a Marian shrine and a world-famous pilgrimage site often times compared to Lourdes and Fatima. Some 20 million pilgrims have visited Medjugorje in the first 20 years and each year more and more people come testifying that it is precisely here, in the heart of Herzegovina, that they have finally found peace and faith.

The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the six children for the first time on June 24, 1981. According to the unanimous testimony of the seers, Virgin Mary conveys through them to all believers messages of peace, love, faith, fasting, prayer and promises. Each pilgrim visits the parochial Church of St. Jacob, located in the centre of the town, the Hill of Apparition in Bijakovici - the place where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared for the first time, the Hill of Cross where a huge cross was erected in 1993, as well! as St. Francis' Garden, Mother's Village and Cenacolo Community.

Medjugorje is the largest tourist and pilgrimage site in Bosnia and Herzegovina and offers a variety of different elements making it also the richest centre in the region. Medjugorje is a standing witness that the differences in prayer may become a tremendous force which can change people and the world.

That makes it a very special, tolerant and harmonious place whose inhabitants are very welcoming and courteous. Medjugorje is an attractive location for both the ordinary tourists and the casual passers-by wanting to assure themselves of the new possibilities life can offer and as such is a unique place in this part of Europe.

 

Neum

Blue oasis

Neum is a city, a tourist settlement and the only municipal centre on the Adriatic coast located on the rugged coastal area along the main road between Dubrovnik (70 km) and Makarska (80 km).

The Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunny days during the year makes it an attractive tourist destination throughout the year. Fresh sea air, coastal walks, night time entertainment and water sports will make a visit to Neum a memorable experience. The authentic Herzegovinian cuisine and different seafood, fish, crab and shellfish specialties make up only a small portion of the rich gastronomic offer found in the hotels ("Sunce","Neum", "Zenit", "Stella") as well as in the other family hotels and motels. The hinterland of Neum, with plenty of olive plantations and vineyards, is an ideal place for those who enjoy agro-tourism.

The traditional Croatian music festival "Ethno festival Neum" takes place every summer in the second half of August, in Neum. There is a modern sport centre in Neum, suitable for football teams training preparations in the winter period. The Museum/Gallery with numerous paintings is also very active in Neum.
