The story of tourism – How to create and convey an experience

first_imgEncouraged by another seemingly successful tourist season in Croatia, the Student Section of the Croatian Public Relations Association, with the support of the Edward Bernays College of Communication Management, launched an education called The Story of Tourism.The education is intended for students of all higher education institutions in Croatia, and especially for students of tourism and communications. The aim of the Story is to present the latest trends in tourism, show the importance of education in this area and bring together ways to successfully brand a tourist destination. The Story of Tourism will be held from 18 to 20 September at Bernays.The story of tourism is thematically related to the way of communicating in tourism and creating emotion through various activities. It is divided into six lectures and three interactive workshops held by renowned lecturers and renowned experts, during which participants will have the opportunity to learn how to create an experience in tourism, discover the importance of media in promoting and branding a tourist destination and try yourself as creators about a particular destination. “As many experts point out, and as much as we have had the opportunity to learn during our studies, tourism needs constant innovation and creative communication, which public relations and various communication activities can provide. It is much more than beach, sea and sun. What we all bring with us from the trip is that well-known indelible experience, and it was precisely the ways of creating that experience and emotion in tourism that were our main guidelines during the creation of the PRiče program.. ”Said Ivan Biošić, head of the Student Section of HUOJ.The project was also supported by Edward Bernays College of Communication Management, which this summer presented its own, tourism studies, which are related to the concept of new economies, follow modern trends and are designed to teach students creativity, branding, communication, new management concept. and the economy of experience.You can check out more about the event at www.pricaoturizmu.com.hrlast_img read more

Parish backs beleaguered Holloway

first_imgCrystal Palace joint-chairman Steve Parish has given his backing to manager Ian Holloway despite the club’s poor start to the season. Press Association “I believe in the manager and I believe in his ability to create a winning team,” the Palace joint-chairman told the South London Press. “We need to keep the ball better. You can’t keep giving it away in this league because, unlike in the Championship, you won’t get it back. “Ian knows that and it was what we were trying to work on over the summer transfer window, bringing people in to try and help us do that. “I’ve got every faith in Ian to sort it out. There are a lot of new players and we’re trying to find both a formation and a way of playing. “We didn’t get what we deserved in the first few games and that puts us where we are. But we’ve got to keep believing. “I know we’re good enough to stay in this league. We just need to find a bit more of a goal threat and believe. “Southampton were the better side on Saturday but we weren’t battered in the second half. “There is a lot to be positive about. We’ve just got to pull together and get some results.” Palace will have to up their game significantly if they are to end their rotten streak this Saturday as they travel to second-place Liverpool. center_img Holloway earned great praise for guiding Palace into the Barclays Premier League last term, but he and his team have found life tough since. Holloway’s position has come under scrutiny after a run of just one win in six games but he retains the backing of Parish. last_img read more

Trojans able to hold off Huskies this time around

first_imgLike it was four weeks ago, the Trojans held a double-digit lead in the second half over Washington. And again, the Huskies made a push to trim the Trojans’ advantage.But unlike January 3rd in Seattle, the Men of Troy were able to weather the Huskies’ push and come away with a 98-88 victory at Galen Center Saturday afternoon.Junior forward Nikola Jovanovic led the way with 28 points on 10-of-13 shooting while sophomore guard Jordan McLaughlin chipped in 21 points, making 5-of-10 shots.The Huskies made a run to cut into the Trojans’ lead to start the second half, cutting the 11-point lead down to three after a couple of transition baskets.But USC answered with a run of its own, scoring on eight of its next nine possessions. Jovanovic continued to score inside and a 3-pointer by McLaughlin helped regain a double-digit advantage for the Trojans at 72-61 midway through the second half.“We just remained poised,” McLaughlin said. “We understood what we went through when we were up there [at Washington]. Yesterday in practice we worked on our press break, coming back to the ball and helping out whoever was getting pressed. We really emphasized all the mistakes we had up there.”After Washington trimmed the lead down to two possessions with under four minutes to play, USC clamped down on defense, holding the Huskies to just two field goals the rest of the way. Jovanovic’s putback layup gave USC a 93-82 lead with just over a minute to play.The junior’s 28 points was a season-high and he did most of his damage in the paint against a Washington team that struggles with defensive rebounds. The Trojans had 18 offensive rebounds to the Huskies’ 12.“We knew we could attack the defensive glass and hurt them over there, and that’s what we did,” Jovanovic said.Head coach Andy Enfield noted that he did not do anything special to call attention to Jovanovic.“Nikola is extremely talented and skilled,” Enfield said. “He played within himself tonight. Made some moves, and was able to get to the rim and finish. There’s nothing we did to say, ‘Go out and score 28 points.’ We just said, ‘Go play your game and have some fun.’”The Trojans used a 17-5 run to pull ahead late in the first half, as they were prolific from 3-point range. It took USC nearly 12 minutes to knock down its first triple when sophomore guard Elijah Stewart put the Trojans up 23-20. But the Men of Troy made three of their next four shots from distance, and freshman forward Bennie Boatwright’s connection at the 4:39 mark of the first half gave USC its first double-digit lead of the afternoon at 36-24.Jovanovic finished off the half with two pretty layups – one in traffic after a series of pump fakes and the second on a controlled take to the rim with the shot clock winding down.The Huskies, meanwhile, were held to just three field goals in the final eight minutes of the first half as the Trojans took a 44-33 lead into halftime.Washington’s star senior guard Andrew Andrews, who leads the Pac-12 in scoring at 21.3 points per game, had a subpar afternoon with just 15 points on 3-of-14 shooting as the Trojans were able to limit his driving ability.“It helped a lot,” McLaughlin said on the strategy against Andrews. “Without him being as effective and getting to the rack, it helped us in a major way.”Boatwright scored five quick points early on for USC, which jumped out to a 9-6 four minutes into the game. Boatwright, who finished with 15 points, was one of five Trojans who scored in double figures along with Katin Reinhardt, Jovanovic, McLaughlin, Reinhardt and Stewart.“We’ve been able to pick each other up,” Enfield said on the scoring balance. “If [certain] players have off nights, their teammates have been able to carry the scoring load and make plays. We don’t have anyone [like Andrew Andrews] who’s going to score 20 or 25 points a night. We have extremely talented offensive players. They share the ball. They bought in to making the extra pass. We lead the [Pac-12] in assists because we’re sharing the basketball.”The Men of Troy surely entered the game with the Jan. 3 loss at Washington on their minds. USC fell 87-85 to the Huskies on the road after blowing a 22-point second half lead.“It was a big learning experience for us,” Jovanovic said. “We were excited for this matchup. We prepared really well.”The Trojans improve to 17-5 and 6-3 in conference play, and are now just a half game out of first in the Pac-12. They also remain undefeated at home with a 13-0 record at Galen Center.Both teams entered Saturday on hot streaks; USC had won four of its last six games while Washington had won three of four, including a comeback win at UCLA Thursday.The Trojans were coming off a comfortable 81-71 win over Washington State Thursday night following a pair of losses in Oregon last weekend.They have four days off before taking on UCLA at Galen Center in a crosstown showdown next Thursday.last_img read more
