Hotel accommodation capacities are just one of the conditions for extending the season in Split-Dalmatia County

first_imgAs part of the extended session of the Professional Group of Hoteliers at ŽK Split, a round table was held at the HGK County Chamber of Split on the topic: “Hotel accommodation facilities – a condition for extending the season.”The aim of the round table was to gather relevant experts and open a discussion on the current state of accommodation capacities in the city and county, key issues, trends and their positive and negative sides, and provide guidelines for further tourism development. ”The organization of this round table was prompted by data on the growth of tourist accommodation capacities in Split and our county. In the last five years, in the period from 2010 to 2015, in the Split-Dalmatia County, the total increase in the number of beds was 41%, while the increase in the number of beds in hotel accommodation in the period was 48%, and the increase in beds in private accommodation 42%. The data also show that hotel accommodation facilities of a higher category have proven to be one of the preconditions for a quality extension of the season. The utilization of the capacity of county hotels in the past five years is on average 124 days and this figure is growing with the categorization of hotels, while for private accommodation this indicator is half lower. said in the introductory speech the vice president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for construction, transport and communications and the acting president of ŽK Split, Mirjana Čagalj.President of the Professional Group of Hoteliers at ŽK Split, Joze Tomaš, opened the discussion with an article by journalist Ružica Mikačić from 2014, since it brought together all the key problems of Split tourism, which are unfortunately still present today. According to projections Mario Šerić, director of the consulting company MarCon, Split will grow by 15% in the next 60 years, and the Split-Dalmatia County, with more than 20 hotel projects in plans and construction, has the greatest development potential.Joško Stella, director of the SD County Tourist Board, announced the preparation of a study of the carrying capacity of the county. “Once we know the boundaries, we will know which way to go. Our goal is not unlimited tourist growth, but sustainable tourism, preservation of the destination and the satisfaction of the local population that must feel the benefits of tourism. said Stella. Alijana Vukšić, director of the Tourist Board of the city of Split, said that the Strategic Marketing Plan of the destination Split, in cooperation with the Faculty of Economics, has been practically completed. In the last three years, accommodation capacities in Split have increased by 10.000 new beds. The congress center, several hotels and the primary commissioning of five city hotels (Marjan, Bellevue, Ambasador, Slavija and Central) would significantly extend the season. “Last year, 55% of overnight stays were realized in the private sector, while in the pre-season hotels were more full (51%),” said Vukšić.Photo: ECASmiljana Pivčević, head of the Department of Economics of the National Economy at the Faculty of Economics in Split, believes that the change in perception of tourism in society is changing for the better, and that interest in the tourism school is growing. “But we need to ask ourselves what we want from tourism, because in the analysis we conducted, the local population points out that the city has been taken away from the residents and that tourism has taken too much momentum.”, said Pivčević Aida Batarelo, Deputy Mayor of Split, stressed that tourism should not be an end in itself, and to be better it is necessary to develop the IT industry in cooperation with the University, and certainly have a financial regional center in Split, such as Splitska banka.Hotel accommodation facilities are indeed, but only one, one of the conditions for extending the season All participants agreed that an increase in hotel accommodation capacity is needed, but also that this is only one of the conditions for extending the season. There are many unresolved issues and problems: the problem of labor (“who will work in these hotels”), the emigration of the population from the inner city and turning it into a tourist city, lack of joint action, better management of the city, lack of parking, traffic jams, ie, as stated by Šerić, solving 4P problems in Split – palace, market, beach, parking.It is necessary to work together on the attractiveness of the destination, observing Split as a whole with the surrounding area (the growth of Split entails the growth of the surrounding area), better connection of the destination and more flights, “The more flights, the more guests!” in discussion).Split is one of the few cities that does not have a tourism development strategy, nor does it have a city development strategy. “There is currently unhealthy structure of accommodation capacities, two thirds are private capacities while in other comparable cities the ratio is exactly the opposite. Hotels are a generator of season extension, but congress tourism, city breaks, events and manifestations are desperately needed; product creation and destination branding by joint action of all actors in tourism are some of the conclusions of the constructive discussion. “They point out from HGK ŽK Split and add that tourism definitely did not happen to Split, but through the persistent work of all employees in tourism and tourist boards, Split has grown from a transit city to a destination.It is certainly positive that all topics are openly and argumentatively discussed, which is the first prerequisite for us to grow and develop, both privately and in society. The more argumentative and constructive the discussion the better. Also, the fact that we do not deal with tourism strategically and in the long run is our main tourism problem from which all problems arise.Strategic development of destinations as well as tourism in general is the only right way to solve all problems and long-term success.last_img read more

But this time, it’s claimed €30m would be enough to take the midfielder from the club.As it’s the same €30m which Leicester City would have offered last summer, that would be a fine opportunity for the Foxes to finally land the player.The Portuguese press tend to change their mind on this, almost by the week. Last week it was the player’s release clause being referred to once again, and now there’s a potential big discount.Should Leicester City still be interested in the summer, having gone through a management change then it’s probably worth giving the €30m another go.last_img read more

How Rashford compares to Ronaldo, Messi, Rooney, Lukaku and Kane at the same age

first_imgIt is worth taking into consideration how many of Kane’s 52 goals before the age of 22 were scored in the lower leagues, with the England captain spending time on loan from Tottenham Hotspur at a number of clubs.Rashford scored twice on the opening day of the season as the Red Devils thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford in a clinical display.However, he has failed to score since then and even missed a crucial penalty during the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at home. 2 The England international scored a brace against Chelsea on the opening day of the season 🎯“Rashford can’t finish!”🔺 “Everybody goes on about his potential, yes he has potential.”🤷‍♂️ “How many chances does he fluff?”#MUFC fan tells @AndyGoldstein05 he is fed up with Rashford missing chances pic.twitter.com/HkypVFSPPb— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) August 20, 2019While it is evident the 21-year-old has a penchant for the spectacular, he still has displayed a ruthless side in front of goal which means he has more goals than Raheem Sterling had before reaching the age of 22.In fact, he is level with Cristiano Ronaldo as well, although some way behind the likes of Harry Kane and Lionel Messi.Former teammate Romelu Lukaku, whose departure to Inter Milan perhaps placed more pressure on Rashford’s young shoulders, has almost double the number of goals.The forward does not turn 22 until Halloween of this year, so still has time to catch up with England colleague Kane and current teammate Anthony Martial. CLUB GOALS BEFORE THE AGE OF 22 AFP or licensors Getty Images – Getty center_img 2 Romelu Lukaku – 93Wayne Rooney – 81Lionel Messi – 80Harry Kane – 52Anthony Martial – 48Marcus Rashford – 47Cristiano Ronaldo – 47Raheem Sterling – 39 Given the responsibility placed upon his young shoulders, Rashford has continued to develop his game and has the ability to play either on the wing or up front.However, as the responsibility grew, so did the pressure.Questions about Rashford’s consistency and his decision-making began to be asked, with fans slowly but surely losing patience.However, when compared with some of the world’s best strikers, it seems as though the criticisms are unfair. Marcus Rashford burst onto the scene at Manchester United in 2016 as a fresh-faced teenager and tore through some of the best defences on the continent.Arsenal and Manchester City found out the hard way just how talented the striker was, with former England boss Roy Hodgson taking the raw talent to Euro 2016.

Gmail Labs Adds More Features: Makes Working With Labels Easier

first_imgTags:#Google#news#web Google announced a few additions to Gmail Labs today that make using labels a bit easier and expand the functionality of some of the already established features. Google announced Gmail Labs in June and, at that time, introduced 13 experimental features. This new batch of updates consists of 3 new features: custom label colors, label specific keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to change the order of items in the navbar.Custom Label Colors By default, Gmail lets you choose between 24 different colors for your labels. If your favorite color is not part of this default set, you can now pick and choose from a lot more colors for your labels and, in addition, you can also choose the color of the text in the labels.Go To Label Keyboard ShortcutIf you activate the ‘go to label keyboard shortcut’ feature, you can now hit ‘g’ ‘l’ on your keyboard and a little pop-up will show up that lets you type in the label/folder you want to navigate to. This comes with a build-in autocomplete feature, so unless you have an insanely complicated label structure in Gmail, you will only have to type in a few letters to get to your destination. For users who prefer to use keyboard shortcuts, this marks the first time they can just switch between labels without have to resort to using the mouse.Navbar Drag and DropOne minor annoyance of Gmail was that every item in the navbar on the left was always fixed in place. Even if you never used the built-in chat, it was always stuck in the same place. Now, you can rearrange these items on the navbar and move the labels up to the top and the chat feature to the bottom.Nice, But Nothing RevolutionaryIt’s nice to see that Google hasn’t forgotten about the Gmail Labs and keeps adding more features. None of these new experiments are earth-shattering, but for a successful product like Gmail, it’s the little evolutionary additions that matter more than radical design overhauls. For now, our favorite Gmail Labs feature is still Superstars, though we have already made good use of the new drag and drop feature to rearrange our menus.
