November 18, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: tdruvkbqd.

first_imgThe results of the research conducted by the regional research center “TIM” from Novi Sad, confirmed that the premiere edition of the Sea Star Festival in Umag this year has contributed to the Croatian tourism industry more than 60 million kuna.The new festival organized by Exit from the first announcement to the final opening, due to great interest has tripled the initial capacity and doubled the number of festival zones in the Umag resort Stella Maris, while according to official data of the Tourist Board of Umag, all accommodation facilities in the city and surrounding places , were filled. Thus, according to the data of the Umag Tourist Board, in relation to the pre-festival weekend in Umag and its surroundings, the number of visits increased by as much as 220%!The festival was visited by more than 25 fans from 28 to 50.000 May, and as many as 93% of them came from outside Umag, and the host city in hospitality is followed by the Istrian County, which was visited by as many as 85% of guests from abroad! The survey also found that each of these visitors spent an average of 292 euros during the festival, according to organizers, which was conducted on a representative sample of visitors with purchased tickets.The research of visitors also shows that they stayed in Umag for an average of three days, and the list of about 40 countries from which guests came to the festival includes Great Britain, the Netherlands, France and most countries on the European continent. from nearby Slovenia and Italy. Visitors from Western Europe spent a bit more, with 310 euros in the end, or 103 euros per day, and it is interesting that visitors from the countries of the region with an average of 305 euros, or slightly more than 100 euros, did not lag behind. Daily.”After the exceptional start of the Sea Star Festival, which exceeded all expectations, a historic chance was created for Sea Star to grow into one of the most important music festivals in the Mediterranean and one of the most important brands in Umag, Istria and the entire region. According to the experience from Exit, with this initial energy, Sea Star will shine on the European map of the festival for a long time”, Said the director and founder of EXIT festival Dusan Kovacevic and adds that visitors, numerous performers, both international and regional who traveled by road in Istria, and more than 300 journalists from around the world in the superlatives themselves spoke about the beauties, gastronomic offer and acceptance by the host.Also, the whole story needs to include the media value and coverage of the festival, which is certainly not negligible when we talk about branding and promotion of a tourist destination. As Kovačić points out, this year the festival received numerous awards from the world media, so some of the most influential British media aimed at the younger population, such as DJ Mag, Billboard, IQ, Mixmag, gave their recommendations for Sea Star as well as for a holiday in Umag. , Pulse Radio, Festpop and many others. Unfortunately, the real media value, ie the reach of the Sea Satar Festival, has not been done, but certainly this information, which is extremely important, should be added to the total tourist consumption.Research also shows that the highly educated make up as much as two thirds, and the average age of the Sea Star festival audience is 26,2 years, which puts them in a higher pay group. Visitors were mostly accommodated in apartments, private accommodation and hotels. The research also showed that the vast majority, over 80%, visited Umag exclusively because of the Sea Star festival, while over 95% of respondents said that their opinion of Umag improved or remained equally positive after the festival! Also, as many as 95.3% of respondents estimated that the Stella Maris complex is an excellent or good location for holding festivals.Investing in events is not a cost, but an investment If we want to have a good attendance and a good story, we must invest, ie invest money in quality content. Without content there is no story, no visitors and ultimately no interest. The goal is to offer quality products and services that visitors are willing to pay and consume, and of course the story of the event as the main motive for coming. The most important thing is to complete the whole story, both to the visitors and to the partners who are inside the festival through catering and other facilities. The event must be a win-win-win for everyone, because if only one element is missing, everything falls into the water.But the most important message is that investing in events is not a cost, but an investment, of course if we look at the long term and work on developing a large event that becomes a motive for coming. With the arrival of as many visitors as possible, such as the good example of the Sea Star Festival, a tourist overnight stay is generated as well as the most important tourist spending. If there is no spending, there is no interest, and interest is the earnings of all partners. Everything pulls one after another, so the organization of events is a serious job that consists of a lot of elements that complement each other.If you want to develop events, then you have to invest money, because one does not go without the other. Without investing in production, the whole experience and quality development, the money invested is a cost and thrown to the wind because we did not complete the whole story, ie get a sufficient number of visitors and, accordingly, not tourist spending. An excellent example is Advent in Zagreb, which achieved 120.000 arrivals and 230.000 overnight stays, and according to the conducted research, generated an estimated consumption of 390 to 438 million kuna.And don’t forget, content is king and the motive for coming.Related news:FIND OUT HOW MUCH ADVENT GENERATED TOURIST SPENDING IN ZAGREBSMALL EVENTS AS THE ESSENCE OF OUR TOURISMTHE ESSENCE OF TOURISM IN ISTRIA – SO SIMPLE AND SO INGENIOUS 100 MILES OF ISTRIA AS A GREAT TOURIST STORY THAT WILL GENERATE 5.000 NIGHTSlast_img read more

first_img Press Association Christian Eriksen wanted to “be part of” Andre Villas-Boas’ Tottenham project and so swapped Ajax for the London club on Friday night. The Denmark midfielder capped a frantic day at White Hart Lane when he became the club’s third signing in 24 hours, joining Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela. Eriksen has moved for an undisclosed fee and, even though his arrival gives another nod towards Gareth Bale’s impending departure to Real Madrid, a switch to Tottenham’s new-look squad was much to his delight. center_img “Everyone has followed the development of Spurs and it’s something I want to be part of,” he said. The 21-year-old has already represented his national team on 37 occasions, scoring four goals, and was a key player for Ajax, having moved there from Odense in 2008. He made 161 appearances and helped the Amsterdam side win three successive Eredivisie titles from 2011, and signs for a Tottenham side that bolstered their ranks immeasurably on Friday.

Playoff hopes fade for Angels as losing streak reaches 6

August 26, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: iuxgjddtb.

first_imgThe Angels have cold hitters throughout the lineup, most notably Mike Trout. His second straight hitless game extended his slump to 9 for 57 (.158). The stretched-thin pitching staff that has been unable to overcome the lack of support.Injuries in the rotation forced the Angels into another bullpen game on Saturday, and the relievers they used weren’t even their best. Only one of the five pitchers who worked on Saturday was on the opening-day roster.That was Bud Norris, a non-roster invitee who made the team as a reliever but has now gotten the ball twice to start bullpen games. Norris gave up one run in 3 1/3 innings.The game got away under the watch of 22-year-old Eduardo Paredes, who started the season in Double-A. Paredes retired the first two hitters in the fifth, but then he hit Alex Bregman, and gave up hits to Marwin Gonzalez, Carlos Correa and Evan Gattis. Gattis hit a three-run homer, capping the four-run inning and putting the Angels in a 5-0 hole.“He’s been throwing the ball really well for us,” Scioscia said. “He just missed some spots at the wrong time.”At the time, they had only two hits against Charlie Morton, who had mostly held them to weakly hit grounders and popups.The Angels got the first two men on in the sixth, but stranded them. Trout was called out on strikes to end the inning. In the seventh, after Upton’s homer to Angels got two more runners, but they couldn’t manage a hit to drive them in.“We have a number of guys who are not having hits fall and struggling a little bit,” Scioscia said. “I think the quality of at-bats are pretty consistent, but at times you’ve missing some pitches you should hit. We missed a lot of pitches today.” PreviousHouston Astros’ Carlos Correa (1) and Cameron Maybin (3) celebrate after a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, in Houston.

(AP Photo/David J.

We know where we want to be. We’re putting in the work and putting in the at-bats. It ain’t going our way, man. That’s how baseball is sometimes.”The slide has come, not surprisingly, during a stretch in which they had nine of 12 games against the Astros and Cleveland Indians, the best two teams in the league. The Angels have lost seven of eight with one to go on Sunday.“We’ve run into some pretty good pitching,” Upton said. “That’s no excuse. We should be able to grind on those guys too. When things aren’t going right and you see some good pitching, it can wear you down. We’ve just got to pull together and keep having good at-bats and see what happens.” HOUSTON — The Angels are quietly slipping out of the playoff chase.The Angels lost, 6-2, to the Houston Astros on Saturday afternoon, dropping their sixth straight game, a season-worst streak.
