first_imgThe international conference ‘Creating and managing experiences in cultural tourism’ has started in Šibenik. The conference is held in the fortress of St. Mihovil from June 22 to 24 as part of the program of the 57th International Children’s Festival, and the conference will seek to provide answers to open questions, detect obstacles and present stimulating examples of good practice to better understand the application of economics of experience in tourism.‘The International Children’s Festival is, and I’ve really traveled the world, as far as theater is concerned, one of the few theater events that plays out its city. I think it is an ideal story for this topic of ours that we will talk about these two days, the topic of cultural tourism and creating experiences’, said Jasen Bokko, organizer of the international conference.Fortress of St. Mihovila once took the title of cultural attraction in Croatia, so it is not surprising that St. Mihovil was chosen as the venue for the event, which brought together numerous experts from Croatia and abroad who will speak in the coming days on the topic of designing the experience of cultural tourism, the economy of experience or creativity in a transformational economy. ‘I hope that today’s conference will offer an insight into how we do it and that we will learn something from each other. It is really difficult to approach each individual. One of the possible ways is to focus on topics that we know are more – less common to all mankind, so in Croatia we have perhaps one of the best examples we are proud of. We have the Museum of Broken Relationships because we were all in a kind of love affair, so we broke it up and each of us on the consumer side knows what it feels like. However, what about topics that are very specific. Research can help but not in every concrete, individual example’, said Daniela Angelina Jelinčić, from the Institute for Development and International Relations in Croatia, where, as she pointed out, they work not only with the brain but also with emotions.In addition to Jelinčić, lectures in the first part of the day were also given by Hrvoje Hribar, until recently director of the Croatian Audiovisual Center, Alexander McCuaig from Great Britain, Matko Burić, producer of Motovun Film Festival and Davinia Gale from Malta. The presentation and lectures continue in the afternoon, and again on Friday, June 23, while the working language of the conference is Croatian and English.See the conference program herelast_img
