&amp;lt;p&amp;gt; What has been announced for the last year and what is only logical and natural, at least when we talk about creating tourist products and branding in tourism, is the merging and synergy of tourist destinations into one brand.This is a project that the leader of the Imotski Tourist Board Luka Kolovrat has been trying to implement for some time, so that, in this way, the tourist offer in Imotski Krajina is unified, and thus more easily accessible to many tourists, who in recent years are increasingly discovering natural beauties of Imotski region.Thus, with the founding assembly and the solemn signing of the agreement between the nine local self-government units, a decision was made to close the former Imotski Tourist Board and establish the tourist board of the area. “Property”, otherwise the first in the Split-Dalmatia County. “The Imotski region is a historical and geographical fact, a geographical fact, which is fragmented and divided through various historical bureaucratic and administrative decrees. This project of formal connection and association of the city of Imotski and municipalities from the area of ​​Imotski Krajina, seeks to bridge these administrative boundaries, in order to facilitate the achievement of goals in the tourism sector. said Luka Kolovrat.CNTB Director Staničić emphasized that encouraging the association of tourist boards is one of the main goals of the new Law on Tourist Boards and the Promotion of Croatian Tourism. “Today, Croatia needs well-profiled tourist destinations that manage quality tourist visits, tourist experience and tourist product using unique strategic resources throughout the year, on the continent as well as on the coast. I am sure that the tourist board of the Imotski area will achieve the above with its work and activities, and that it will be an excellent example of good practice and an incentive for others to follow the path of association and connection, economy and efficiency.”, said Staničić, adding that the positive effects of the association will be visible in the segment of promotion and management of the destination and its resources.The session adopted the proposal of the Work Program of TZP Imota for 2018, which defines all activities that lead to the affirmation of the area, enriching the offer with new content, creating better conditions for tourists and active promotion of the destination. Thus, TZP Imota will contribute to increasing tourist traffic and the number of overnight stays, especially in the pre-season and post-season, creating new tourist facilities, promoting the area as a tourist destination of quality and diverse products, improving the overall appearance of the tourist destination and other strategically important goals. This year, TZP Imota will focus its financial resources on numerous programs and activities such as continuing the research of the Red Lake, organizing the Imota family day, making bicycle and race tracks, etc.Regions need to be brandedIt is fair to say that it is insane that one island of Brac, I repeat the island, has seven tourist boards that do not yet cooperate with each other, each developing a “tourist destination” nor do we have a common tourist product, and I repeat we are talking about the island of Brac. On the other hand, let’s say the island of Krk, which also has seven tourist boards and another tourist board of the island of Krk, which was created with the aim of branding one island, and not each separately.Personally, I think that Croatia must brand regions, such as Istria, Dalmatia, Slavonia… because it is insane that, say, one Slavonia has five county tourist boards and five different destination developments. What Osijek-Baranja County or Vukovar-Srijem County means to a foreigner, but as one tourist brand and a complete story – Slavonia, absolutely yes. By the way, the process of branding Slavonia as a tourist brand is being worked on, more on that soon.We should look to the examples of Tuscany, Provence or Bavaria, as well as Switzerland and Austria, which are perfectly combined with various tourist products based not on the regions, and not on each tourist destination separately. Tourism is the first that knows no borders, and especially foreign tourists who come to us and are not really interested or feel the invisible borders of cities and counties, tourists are destined for Croatia and then Dalmatia, Istria, Slavonia, etc.…The system of tourist boards should definitely be changed because as it is at the moment it is inefficient, counter productive and ultimately there is no synergy of everyone in the tourist destination. How and in what direction it is for constructive discussion, but it is certainly more than clear how we must turn to development based through the concept of destination management company in accordance with all the trends of the 21st century. By the way, the Ministry of Tourism is currently working on the adoption of a new package of tourist laws and the reorganization of tourist boards, which should be presented to the public soon.Related news: INITIATIVE LAUNCHED TO DECLARE IMOT LAKES UNESCO GEO PARKlast_img read more

Children see one gambling ad for every five by adults in 2018


first_imgShare UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Related Articles Submit ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Lee Willows, YGAM: Education is central to gambling reform  July 9, 2020 Gambling accounted for just 2.2% of the average 141.9 adverts seen by children each week in 2018 according to new figures published by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which confirmed that children’s exposure to gambling adverts, relative to adults, has fallen from 38.6% in 2008 right down to 20.4% last year. The new report by the UK’s independent advertising regulator followed figures covering the exposure of children to age-restricted TV adverts for alcohol, gambling and food and soft drink products high in fat, salt or sugar (HFSS).The number of gambling adverts seen by children on TV, it found, has fallen to 3.2 per week in 2018 from a peak of 4.4 in 2013.This peak of 4.4 per week in 2013 actually represented a smaller percentage of total adverts seen by children in that year, accounting for 1.9% of the 229.3, although this was the highest total number recorded across the 10-year period.In terms of total exposure, the 4.4 adverts per week in 2013 equated to approximately 108.9 seconds, down to just 7.7 seconds (from 3.2 adverts) in 2018.It should be noted that in 2008, the first full year in which adverts for gaming and betting were allowed on TV, children saw just 2.2 per week (1.0% of 219.5) lasting 48 seconds. The majority of the adverts seen by children since 2011 are for bingo, lotteries and scratchcards. The advertising rules limit children’s exposure through the ban on gambling adverts in and around children’s programmes and programmes of particular appeal to under-18s.  The industry-wide voluntary ‘whistle-to-whistle’ advertising ban came into force on 1 August 2019, which means there should be no TV betting adverts during pre-watershed live sport broadcasts – from five minutes before the event begins to five minutes after it finishes.last_img read more
