TURIZAM Dio dubrovačkih hotela preprodao svoje kapacitete pa se krenulo sa zaustavljanjem dalje prodaje
Dubrovački hoteli puni sve do kraja listopada
Autor Marija BIKIĆ



DUBROVNIK - Dubrovnik je top destinacija prema procjeni mnogih uglednih svjetskih časopisa i televizijskih kuća, ali još neobnovljenih oko osam tisuća hotelskih kreveta na širem dubrovačkom području doveli su i ove sezone do toga da je smještaj u dubrovačkim hotelima vrlo tražen i to sve do kraja listopada.
No zbog velikog zanimanja i straha od sezonskih rupa prodaje nekih dubrovačkih hotela, preprodali su svoje kapacitete pa sada muku muče gdje smjestiti goste. Događaju se i neugodne situacije kada gostima zbog prebukiranosti nude raznorazne zamjenske smještaje čak i preko državne granice - u Budvu i Neum, a već se krenulo i sa zaustavljanjem dalje prodaje.

- Iz većine dubrovačkih hotela počeli smo dobivati najave za stopiranje bookinga za sljedeća tri mjeseca - rekao je tehnički direktor Atlasa, jedne od najvećih dubrovačkih turističkih agencija, Vlado Lučić. - Ako je prekomjerni booking (overbooking) tragedija, onda je "stopbooking" (zaustavljena prodaja) još veća. Mi još u Atlasu možemo nešto smještaja kompezirati i goste poslati u privatne apartmane. No tu je i pitanje čarter letova koji ih dovoze. Ako nema mjesta, letjet će poluprazni ili čak prazni. Stoga to izaziva negodovanje stranih partnera, touroperatora. Prema mojim informacijama, već su se neki žalili u predstavništva Hrvatske turističke zajednice, primjerice u Francuskoj.

HTZ je zadužena za marketing i potroši puno novca na promociju i preporučuje jednu destinaciju, a tada se dogodi da više nema prostora za smještaj nijednoga gosta - požalio se Lučić. Stoga bi trebalo, predlaže, da HTZ bude svojstveni koordinator između touroperatora, nas agencija i hotela kako bi se ovakve situacije ubuduće izbjegle koliko je moguće.

- Teško je biti kordinator - dovoljno je biti profesionalac, a naš je posao pozivati goste i promovirati odredište, ne zalazimo u sferu poduzetništva i ugovaranja poslova. Mi smo odavno upozoravali da je potražnja veća od ponude, posebice na dubrovačkom području. Sve ima svoju granicu - ne možete jednu hotelsku postelju prodati pet puta, slažem se da je overbooking prešao prihvatljivu granicu i da će to imati određene negativne posljednice u rezultatu poslovanja s poslovnim partnerima. Stoga o tome treba dobro razmisliti prilikom planiranja sljedeće sezone kako se ovakve situacije izbjegle, no Dubrovnik je top destinacija i dalje će biti vrlo tražena - kaže direktor TZ-a Dubrovačko-neretvanske županije Vlado Bakić.

Croatian companies looking to purchase SCG firms ....

KOMPANIJE Našička kompanija želi preuzeti crnogorski "Agrokombinat 13. juli"
Podgorički Vranac uskoro u Nexe grupi
Autor BRANKO VRBOŠIĆ



Našička Nexe grupa u igri je za još jedno važno regionalno preuzimanje. Riječ je o Agrokombinatu 13. juli A. D. Plantaže iz Podgorice. Našičani su lani posjetili nekoliko tvrtki u Crnoj Gori i raspitivali se o mogućim akvizicijama u industriji cementa i građevinskih materijala. No, oduševio ih je proizvođač glasovitog vina vranac. Doznajemo da će idućih mjeseci kompanija pokušati na Montenegro burzi steći što veći paket dionica Agrokombinata i tako se pripremiti za konačno preuzimanje te tvrtke.

"Vinsko" iskustvo
Budući da je Našicecement doslovno iz pepela izvukao vinariju FeraVino u Feričancima, danas jednu od najmodernijih u Hrvatskoj, ne iznenađuje što se razmišlja i o ovakvim akvizicijama. Unatoč zatišju, u Nexe grupi snimaju se nove akvizicije u Hrvatskoj, BiH, SiCG, a na pragu su akvizicije koja se može mjeriti s najvećima dosad.
Našicecement je objavio javnu ponudu za kupnju udjela u A.D. Toza Marković iz Kikinde. Namjeravamo steći minimalno 25 posto, a maksimalno 49 posto udjela, a s obzirom na ponuđenu cijenu od 28,10 eur/dionica, očekivati je velik broj zainteresiranih. Našicecement je prije raspisivanja javne ponude imao 1,81 posto udjela u toj tvornici crijepa i keramičkih pločica, te bi, ako javna ponuda u potpunosti uspije, postala i većinski vlasnik obavijest je uprave Nexe grupe.
Nexe grupa u Srbiji već ima tvornicu opeke Stražilovo, tvornicu crijepa i keramičkih pločica Polet iz Novog Bečeja, te tvornicu vapna Jelen Do iz Jelen Dola.

Uskoro i T. Marković
Kupovinom Toze Markovića tržišni udjel Nexe grupe u Srbiji znatno bi se povećao. Uostalom Toza Marković je sa 40 posto udjela najveći proizvođač crijepa i keramičkih pločica u Srbiji i Crnoj Gori.
Preuzimanjem A. D. Toza Marković, Nexe grupa postala bi vodeći proizvođač crijepa u regiji i keramičkih pločica u SiCG. Tom bi se sinergijom ostvarila još veća efikasnost i ekonomičnost poslovanja ističe Ergović.Nexe grupa ne odustaje ni od akvizicija u Hrvatskoj. Po svemu sudeći, Kamen Ingrad ostat će samo potencijal jer je njegova zaduženost prerizična. Zato se tiho radi na razvoju cijele mreže betonara u Hrvatskoj, BiH, SiCG, ali uskoro i u Pečuhu u Mađarskoj, četvrtoj državi na koju se proizvodnjom proširuje našički regionalni igrač.

:D

Most Croatian companies that became owners of foreign companies, whether is it in our region or somewhere further abroad, they do very good business - they pay good and invest a lot in expansion of their business. :)

A1 motorway a hit with Hungarians and Slovenes ....

A lot of media coverage in both Hungary and Slovenia over the full opening of the A1 motorway. :yes:

Basically it now take Slovenes in Ljubljana only 3.5 hours to hit the Croatian coast at the port city of Zadar. Previously it took 14 hours. Thats now over 10 hours less!!!!!! :eek:

Also the Hungarians are now happy because they can have weekend trips on the coast because the new motorway is faster and safer.

Well done Croatia. ;)

News from Serbia ...

Croatia opens direct Europe-Adriatic route | 20:22 June 27 | B92

ZAGREB -- Monday – Following the official opening of the last 33 kilometres, the Dalmatina Motorway, joining Zagreb and the Dalmatian coastal city of Split, was opened to traffic last night.

The 380 kilometre motorway includes 26 bridges, 50 viaducts, 91 flyovers, 78 underpasses, 25 ramps, 14 tunnels and five livestock crossings which altogether comprise 18.6 per cent of the total route. Construction cost 17 billion kunas (about 2.3 billion euros). The result is a 130 kilometre-per-hour road, cutting the transit time between Croatia’s two largest cities to just four hours.

Prime Minister Ivo Sanader declared the motorway open at a ceremony in Skradina.

“In the history of every nation there is a special moment when a generation dreams of one goal. Today we have the privilege of being part of the generation which has created free Croatia and also connected the north and south of Croatia,” said Sanader.

The prime minister also gave warm thanks to his predecessor and political rival, Ivica Racun, whose government made the crucial decision to continue construction on the Dalmatina.

A special mention was given at the opening to the Croatian politicians of the end of the 1960s members of the Croatian Spring who were the driving force behind the idea of the motorway. “If the Croatian Spring had not been broken up and the road built, today Croatia would be a completely developed country,” said President Stjepan Mesic.

Mesic described the motorway as linking not only southern and northern Croatia, but also Europe and the Mediterranean, and as giving Croatia the chance to seize all opportunities. Now, he said, Croatia is linked to Munich and Bavaria and Munich has become a completely Mediterranean city, because it is now only a few hours’ drive from the sea. :)

The Dalmatina project was launched almost forty years ago. The first initiative was taken by Savka Davcevic-Kucar and Dragutin Haramije but the project was revived only after the former Yugoslav republic became independent. The first stage to be completed was the building of the St Rok tunnel through Velebit ten years ago. Four years later the US firm Bechtel began work in Lica and, at the beginning of 2001, the former Racan Government began what seemed the ambitious plan to finish the motorway by the summer of 2005.

Most expensive in Europe

Travellers on the Dalmatina will pay one of the highest tolls in Europe. The 280 kilometres from Zagreb to Split costs 157 kunas (21.5 euros) in tolls, more than the luxury motorways through the EU countries. The average toll on European motorways is about fifteen per cent less.

To reach the Dalmatian coast from Serbia via the Belgrade-Zagreb motorway then the Dalmatina costs a total of 250 kunas (about 35 euros) in tolls.

Sanader announced earlier that the toll fees will probably be discounted during winter months. The prime minister said that the toll fees will be used to pay the loans raised for building the motorway.

I think its good that it wasn't built by concession, which would have probably seen some foreign firm control the highway for some 20-30 or even more years.

Actually not, i would say there is a huge difference what Croatian companies do when buy a foreign company and what foreign companies do in Croatia.
Croatian companies mostly keep and expand productivity hiring more and more people which also raises GDP in those countries - in one word it could be called greenfield investments.
Hmmm, while Austrian and German (financial and banking) companies are kind of parasites for our economy, of course they do it to us because they have blessing from our retarted government! The best living example of it was the deal our government signed with Deutsche Telekom :devil:
Hopefuly that will change soon :)

Zagreb je u posljednjih pet mjeseci posjetilo 15 posto više turista nego lani u istom razdoblju, što je najveći turistički uspjeh u posljednjih deset godina. Svibanj je pritom bio udarni mjesec, u kojem je zabilježeno 33 posto više dolazaka, a 37 posto više noćenja nego lani. To konkretno znači da je Zagreb u proteklih pola godine posjetilo gotovo milijun turista, a isto ih je toliko još i noćilo.
Mick, the figures are wrong.
Above, i have quoted part of article published in Vecernji list (not sure if was posted on this forum?)

Article says that in the first five months of 2005 15% more tourists visited Zagreb than in the first five months of 2004. Later on they say concretly that's 1 million tourists wich is :weird: :hammer: :hm: :crazy:

And guess what, your prediction is right 80000/507000 = 15% :nocrook:
