On November 10th-11th Rovinj hosted the Days of Croatian Tourism for the second time (the first time was in 2010). The Days of Croatian Tourism is the largest gathering of tourism workers in Croatia. The multi-day event program includes lectures, expert-led workshops, presentations, and panel discussions that reflect on the tourism year in Croatia, with tourism professionals summarizing economic achievements, discussing ideas on current tourism-related topics, and looking into the potential for further development and more effective future positioning of Croatian tourism. The program also includes an annual tourism awards ceremony, with a live television broadcast, on which occasion individuals, industry professionals, and top destinations and entities whose efforts and achievements have made them eligible for these prestigious accolades are presented with the awards. The Annual Croatian Tourism Awards is a joint project of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, the Croatian Tourist Board, and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, designed to further encourage competitiveness, and innovation and raise awareness of the importance of sustainable development and tourism service and product quality upgrades.
During the event, the Tourist Board of the City of Rovinj-Rovigno organized "Welcome to Istria", a presentation of Istrian producers and their products at the Lone Hotel. The exhibitors at this special event were the Rovinj liqueur factory “Darna”, the Buzet distillery “Aura”, the Agrorovinj Association with their olive oils, Vinistra with their local wines, Jelinić Prosciutto Farm and Choco Art with their chocolate products.
