Organized by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, in cooperation with the Adriatic Luxury Hotels, the journalist Elizabeth Brownfield is in Dubrovnik from September 15 to 19, preparing a report on the best hotels on the Croatian coast for the digital edition of Forbes magazine, Forbes.com. During her stay in Dubrovnik, the journalist will visit the most important cultural and historical sights of the city, the island of Lokrum and its surroundings.
The American journalist was welcomed by the director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Ana Hrnić, who welcomed her with a souvenir. Ana Hrnić and Elizabeth Brownfield talked about the importance of the American market for Dubrovnik and Croatia, the recovery of tourist traffic and the gastronomic offer offered by Dubrovnik and its surroundings. The journalist also expressed interest in the digital nomad program, because she is a nomad herself and spent a year and a half working from other countries before the pandemic.
In addition to the article about hotels, which will be published in the digital edition of Forbes.com, and which has about 27 million readers a month, the journalist will also write an article about Dubrovnik as a destination, given the great interest of American tourists.
Promotional campaigns in the American market conducted by the City Tourist Board since the beginning of 2021, in cooperation with American airlines, from promotional videos to reports and advertorials in their inflight magazines have proven to be an excellent assessment in ensuring great interest from the US market this year. The fact that the introduction of direct flights of the American airlines, United Airlines and Delta Airlines, with as many as eight weekly flights connecting the USA with Dubrovnik is a great success.
The American market is one of the most important emitting markets in Dubrovnik, whose tourists are currently in third place in the top list of the most numerous tourists in Dubrovnik. Currently, 1,548 tourists from the USA are staying in Dubrovnik, while in August there were 16,712 American guests.
