The Dubrovnik Fair
« Back to newsletter
The fair brought together 31 English UK member centres and 43 study abroad agents from Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Hungary, Turkey, Ukraine, Latvia, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Albania, Romania and the Czech Republic. The fair was the fifth workshop to be jointly organised by the ELPG.
The success and popularity of these fairs is based on their unique small size and friendly atmosphere. The programme of social events, seminars, and one-to-one appointments in the beautiful coastal setting just outside Dubrovnik gave educators and agents the opportunity to really get to know each other and develop long-lasting productive partnerships.
David Blunt, HM Ambassador to Croatia, and Les Dangerfield, Director of the British Council in Croatia, both spoke before the farewell dinner, which was held in the impressive surroundings of the Rupe Museum, in the historic Old Town of Dubrovnik.
Educators praised the overall organisation and concept of the Fair- "very well organized as always and plenty of opportunities to make contact with agents and other education providers." One delegate remarked, "such fairs are an excellent opportunity to build quality business connections", and "everything was … well-coordinated and very professional."
