I certainly believe that such initiatives are necessary and useful to give young people the right opportunity”, Said Roberto Gobo from Valamar. As part of the event held in the hall of Villa Antonio in Opatija, the participants of the program presented to the audience and investors their business ideas that they have developed over the past two months, of which the three best ideas brought cash prizes. Based on the evaluations of the mentors and the jury, the first prize went to the team Elio (Sara Sušanj, Nika Kurti, Emil Rubinić,…) with its application for interactive guided tours, the second place went to the team Sea Memory (Korana Kraguljac, Tonči Brnečić) who created an innovative and an authentic souvenir, while third place went to the Grop team (Ana and Oliver Kamenečki) for an online platform for discovering indigenous local products. “I’m glad to see things like this happen. Also, it is somehow logical for the center of tourist innovations to be launched in Opatija, the cradle of Croatian tourism.”, Emphasized Aljoša Domijan from ABC Accelerator, and continuedWe are following the development of this story with a watchful eye and I think that we will soon have a lot more space for cooperation.” Hubbazia’s activities so far are an overture for the EU project “Establishment of the business incubator of the city of Opatija – Hubbazia” within the Urban Agglomeration of Rijeka. The aim of the project is to establish an incubator specializing in tourism activities that would be a leader in business innovation in the region and a link between young and creative people and existing companies. Immediately before the awards ceremony, a panel discussion was held on the topic “The role of innovation in tourism” with the participation of Valamar’s innovation director Roberto Gobo, RDA Prigoda director Vedran Kružić, founder and investor of Ljubljana’s ABC Accelerator Aljoša Domijan and Silos Group director Mateo Stupičić. while the discussion was moderated by Vanja Vitezić, postdoctoral student and assistant at the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality.center_img “I am extremely proud that the City of Opatija was the first to decide to make such a step forward. In the midst of a strong outflow of young people, such initiatives and a constructive environment can encourage young and enterprising people to venture into business ventures in Croatia. I am of the opinion that self-employment and constant improvement are the foundations on which a better future can and must be built. Now we are arranging the space to provide the best possible working conditions, and even richer and better quality programs”, Concluded Deputy Mayor Emil Priskić. The City of Opatija, in cooperation with Silos Group doo and a partner, the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality, at the beginning of the year began organizing a program of free workshops called “Creative Tourism Lab Opatija – incubation program”. Yesterday, on Thursday, May 23, the pilot program called “Creative Tourism Lab” within the new Opatija center of creative tourist innovations “Hubbazia” was concluded with a solemn event.
