     First Adria Hotel Forum has been held in February 2013 and it has gathered Croatian and foreign experts discussing on potential developments and investments in hotel industry. Vice Presidents of the two largest hotel management companies – Inter Continental Hotels and Hilton Worldwide have also participated at the Forum. Forum goal was to emphasize communication and opinion exchange as well as the presentation of world examples that have ensured the tourism development in their regions.

Adria Hotel Forum, in it’s second edition goes one step further with the main theme „Investments and innovations“

Adria Hotel Forum, in its second edition, is moving one step further. The Forum 2014 theme is: “Investments and innovations”. During the first day, the panels will be focused on investments – the ones that already happened after Croatia has joined EU and the ones that should happen in future periods. During the second day AHF will gather and present potential investments in innovations as the model of attracting new markets and generating new supply, everything with the goal of quality upgrade and creating added value for the guest and the owners at the same moment.

Adria Hotel Forum is a relevant point of the world’s experts and encourages communication and development of stakeholders of tourism industry and aims long to be “think tank” of industry that connects people and creates the possibility of additional value and interest of foreign investors in Croatia.
