Croatia’s award-winning DMC and small ship cruise company, Katarina Line, has announced its trade show schedule for fall 2018 in North America as the company continues to expand its services in response to the growing demand for travel to Croatia. According to Managing Director Daniel Hauptfeld, trade show appearances offer a valuable opportunity to meet one-on-one with industry partners and to educate new agents on selling Croatia.
“Travelers from around the world are discovering the unique appeal of small ship cruising on the Adriatic Sea,” said Hauptfeld. “We’re also seeing more groups booking our wide range of customizable land tours that reveal Croatia’s historic cities, cultural heritage, gastronomic tradition, and stunning natural attractions, such as Plitviče Lakes National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.”
Hauptfeld noted that Katarina Line can schedule meetings at the booth as well as before and after the trade shows. Representatives can also visit agents’ office for a private presentation and to train its staff.
“We’re very grateful for the support we receive from the travel agent community and reward their loyalty with one of the most generous commission structures in the industry,” said Hauptfeld.
