"We are starting the 2022 fair season with a lot of optimism, eager for an event that brings success to the participants. This is our new beginning "- said in his welcome speech the director of the Adriatic Fair, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rajko Bujković.
Bujković referred to the still current situation with the virus, despite which as many as three fair exhibitions were organized:
“Virus Kovid 19 has stopped the fair activity, both in Budva and all over the world. Here with us are our exhibitors who planned and paid for the fair in 2020. We are immensely grateful to these exhibitors for their loyalty and understanding of the situation. Today we have before us a fair event that follows three complementary themes: tourism, food and furniture united in one term. The fair's task is to be accessible and to serve businesses that currently need to use the fair platform to improve the sale and promotion of their products and services, and make new business contacts. "
The fair event is to announce numerous events and the upcoming tourist season, and they are also promoters of tourism. The current fairs gathered exhibitors from Montenegro, as well as from the surrounding countries, and Director Bujković especially praised their readiness to prepare their offer in a short time:
"This time there are 30 exhibitors who were ready to make a decision on the fair appearance and exhibit their products in a very short time. I wish the exhibitors full business success, and the visitors the pleasure of choosing the best offer "- said Bujković
Opening the Fair, the representative of the Municipality of Budva Nikola Kralj praised the efforts of the management, employees of the Adriatic Fair and exhibitors:
The Adriatic Fair and the exhibitors of three current fair exhibitions, which have been successfully organized in these well-known, difficult and reduced circumstances, have proved that everything is possible when you want it, and not only when you want it, but also when you try. "
The King emphasized the importance of such events, both for exhibitors and visitors, but also their wider significance in the context of the overall economy of the city and Montenegro, which the Municipality of Budva recognizes and supports.
The opening ceremony, with its wonderful songs and interpretation, was contributed by the popular Budva female vocal group "Harmony".
