TurističkePriče.hr / Last Minute Hrvatska Keep an eye on the Viber community Total Croatia Travel INFO with all the epidemiological information in Croatia for foreign tourists, and if you want to post your last minute offer, post it in the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals or contact us directly at [email protected] On the one hand, the importance and advantage of Viber groups is that users ask their inquiries and offers, we have interaction, while the advantage of the portal is that accommodation offers are structured, easier to find in one place and we have additional reach of last minute posts. Ultimately, both complement each other perfectly. “I am glad that we can be a part of a great initiative and story about the Viber community started by colleagues Paul and Krešimir. They did a great job at the right time with communication about all epidemiological measures and certainly kept many foreign tourists who were planning, and who eventually came, to spend the summer in Croatia. Ovim putem svi zajedno dodatno pomažemo našem turizmu i da se smještajni kapaciteti što bolje popune u ovoj iznimno teškoj turističkoj godini” points out Goran Rihelj, owner and chief editor of the portal HrTurizam.hr, and adds that already on the first day of publication, one accommodation was successfully booked through the site, which is great news. The TurističkePriče.hr portal is a new tourist lifestyle portal for the promotion of tourist destinations and Croatia as a tourist destination, otherwise a new project by Goran Rihelj, the founder and editor-in-chief of the HrTurizam portal. The portal is aimed at the general public and is positioned as a tourist lifestyle portal that brings positive tourist stories of our beautiful country. The Viber community Total Croatia Travel INFO was created as a kind of crisis information center for tourism with all the epidemiological information in Croatia, where day by day they answer all foreign tourists to inquiries about entering Croatia. Currently, there are over 5.000 members in the Viber group, who post 300 to 500 messages / queries per day, and each query is answered on the same day. As inquiries about the accommodation offer began to be asked in the community, so the idea was born for the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals, which has over 3.500 members. In collaboration with the Viber community Croatia Last Minute Deals., which publishes last minute ponude kako hotelskog tako i privatnog smještaja, a koju su pokrenuli Paul Bradbury i Krešimir Macan, od sada last minute ponude dostupne su i na portalu Turističke priče – Last Minute Hrvatska The portal contains last minute offers of hotel and private accommodation, as well as travel communities.
Justin M. Jacobson, APEThe Agency for Professional Esports, APE, has some new blood with the announcement that Justin M. Jacobson has joined as player agent and counsel.In this capacity Jacobson will be heavily involved in the agency’s day-to-day legal and business development matters. He will also assist in the recruiting and signing of new talent to the agency. Prior to joining APE, Jacobson has worked in traditional sports with NFL, NBA and MLB pro athletes, in addition to music producers, songwriters, and fashion designers.We interviewed Jeff Suhy and Jason Moore back in February to discuss their plans for APE, and they spoke of waiting for that true ‘breakthrough’ star. Speaking to Esports Insider, Jacobson explained why he joined APE: “I joined APE for a variety of reasons. First, it is an honor to link with such a quality organisation as the foundation they have laid thus far will be beneficial to my growth in this sector.“APE also provides me with the ability to work with like-minded and well-known individuals who share the same goal and philosophy toward talent management and brand development. Additionally, I joined in an effort to expand their operations to New York and the East coast to better serve the major East coast markets as well as the European and Asian markets. I hope to bring a new attitude and approach to the marketing and development of “branded” content based on my prior extensive experience in this area to help compliment their current practices.”As to why he believes the company is needed in the space, he said: “To date, APE has made huge strides in talent representation and the overall “brand” management of professional gamers.“They currently represent some of the world’s top talent in a variety of games. They have negotiated major marketing and player contracts on behalf of their clientele and have consulted for a variety of esports businesses. In particular, the work the agency is doing on behalf of its gamers, including their vigorous representation while negotiating on behalf of their players, sets them apart from others in the field.”He continued: “In particular, they are competent professionals who fully understand the entire business landscape. There seems to be a string of ‘consultants’ and ‘player agents’, with little to no actual contract negotiation and/or drafting experience, working on behalf of professional gamers, and they are negotiating with major organisations represented by competent professionals. “Ultimately, the biggest issue facing esports talent management is assisting the gamers to understand the short and long “value” that these individuals can bring to their career. This includes assisting in avoiding potential issues that would have been avoided if they aligned themselves early on with proper management and advisers.”Esports Insider says: APE has a solid backbone of contacts in the world of entertainment, and with Jacobson comes a wealth of experience of dealing with pro athletes in major sports which can only be a positive for the esports players that sign up with the agency.
