The congress industry seeks to enable professional and scientific gatherings

first_imgZajednica poslovnog turizma Hrvatske gospodarske komore zatražila je od nadležnih ministarstava  da stručne i znanstvene skupove uvrste u kategoriju događanja koja će biti dopuštena za održavanje u prvoj fazi mjera za pokretanje gospodarskih i drugih djelatnosti. Inicijativu da se omoguće stručni skupovi podržali su i Hrvatska udruga profesionalaca kongresnog turizma (HUPKT), Hrvatski liječnički zbor (HLZ – preko 150 liječničkih društava s ukupno 10.500 članova), Hrvatska udruga medicinskih sestara (HUMS – 33 stručna društva s ukupno 5.500 članova) i Udruga industrije medicinskih proizvoda (CROMED). The profession says that business tourism, given the currently very bad situation in the sector, ie almost one hundred percent losses in the spring season, will certainly not recover until the spring of 2021. Therefore, they are also seeking an extension of the measures to preserve jobs that are currently in force. President of HUPKT Ranko Filipovic naglašava kako su hoteli i konferencijski centri, kao i ostali dobavljači, spremni na uvođenje mjera zaštite i kontrolu pravila distanciranja te ograničenje broja korisnika s obzirom na preporučene norme.  „We suggest that the general limit applies to 100 participants, however exceptionally in case the convention center and accommodation facility is able to provide the prescribed distance due to capacity, and more with the prior consent of the local or national Headquarters. Additionally, in the direction of encouraging Croatian companies to organize internal meetings, we request, at least temporarily, the abolition of the payment of salary contributions in kind for internal events.”, Said Filipović.  Također, iz HUPKT-a predlažu i da se dopusti posluživanje hrane u zatvorenim prostorima (hotelskim restoranima) budući da terase nisu svima dostupne niti prikladne u slučaju lošeg vremena, naravno sve uz potpuno poštivanje preporuka epidemiologa. The letter to the ministries also outlined concrete measures that the organizers can take to ensure the highest prescribed hygiene standards, which guarantees the health safety of the participants.  “The congress industry is an important segment of tourism, but also of the overall Croatian economy because its consumption and long-term stability is a significant generator of inflows to domestic hotels, congress centers, restaurants and transport companies that are most affected by this pandemic. We believe that professional and scientific gatherings are in a more favorable position than similar public gatherings, primarily because they are educations with a special emphasis on professional development and knowledge exchange where there is no place for entertainment. This is especially true for medical gatherings which, according to strict codes of ethics, are not allowed to have entertainment or have it to a very limited extent. “, pointed out the president of the Business Tourism Association of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Jasmina Bilać, noting that the average delegate spends significantly more on professional development than leisure tourists.last_img read more

Who plays on ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for Week 10

first_imgMORE: Full betting preview for Vikings vs. CowboysThose who are picking the Cowboys to beat the Vikings (like Sporting News) likely are pointing to the more trustworthy quarterback. Dak Prescott has posted a passer rating of 100 or better in six of seven career games against NFC North opponents and generally plays well in prime time. Kirk Cousins, though he has played well on the road of late, generally struggles in these national TV games.Also in the spotlight Sunday night will be the running backs. The Vikings’ Dalvin Cook has seven games with 100 or more scrimmage yards in 2019, the most in NFL. The Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott has 24 games with 100 or more rushing yards since 2016, the most in NFL. Below is all the info you need to watch Cowboys vs. Vikings on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time.Who plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: Minnesota Vikings at Dallas CowboysKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our Week 10 NFL picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News projected a Cowboys victory Sunday night. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Cowboys are a great home team in big games. The Vikings are a bad road team in big games. Dallas is coming off a short week, but Minnesota might run into the same defensive problems it had in Kansas City, only with a few more offensive limitations around Kirk Cousins. Dak Prescott will succeed stretching the field, and Ezekiel Elliott will help with several chunk runs. Cousins will succumb to the Cowboys’ pass rush and coverage in crunch time. Pick: Cowboys win 31-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: In theory, this game between two NFC contenders should be close, which is bad news for the team that has a quarterback with an 0-10-1 record when trailing in the fourth quarter with his current squad. That’s Kirk Cousins, who has earned his reputation as a player who wilts in big, prime-time games. A Sunday night in Dallas, a spot in which Dak Prescott typically thrives, certainly qualifies. With both teams facing stingy defenses, the Cowboys will make more big plays.
