Once again Plitvice Perfume is flying over the ocean! This time we were invited to China, thanks to Marco Polo!
Plitvice Times team attented the Ningbo Tourism B2B Matchmaking Fair alongside with The International Association the Roads of Marco Polo.
Central and Eastern European countries (CEEC) tourism meeting was held at Nanyuan Hotel.
More than 500 guests from more than ten CEE countries, including Latvia, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina, attended the conference. The conference was held in the port city of Ningbo which aims for global development as the starting point of the Maritime Silk Road.
International delegates at the conference represented national tourism associations, city mayors’ offices, cross-continental financial institutions, as well as embassies and consulates.
