Our time was managed perfectly by the staff who was professional, exceptionally courteous, and genuinely committed to our success. While the business portionof our conference was tremendously successful, the most memorable moments came from the time spent exploring the country. Each of the organized cultural experiences show cased the stunning countryside of Croatia and the beauty and history of the cities within. The tour guides were enthusiastic about their work and went out of their way to educate and entertain our Producers.

I am writing on behalf of IPHA (the International Prestressed Hollowcore Association) for whom I had the honour of being Chief Executive from 1999 to 2017.Details of IPHA can be found on their website www.hollowcore.orgbutin brief it is an organisation whose members are manufacturers, designers and suppliers to the precast concrete industry around the world.There are approximately 55 member companies from about 35 different countries including Europe, USA, Australia, UAE etc.The aim of the organisation is to share technical expertise and research and to promote the use of arguably the most important construction material in the world.One of the most important events in the IPHA calendar is the annual conference where all member companies are invited to send delegates and partners to meet together to share knowledge, experiences and to develop social contact. The attendees are normally the company owners or chief executives and the venue is usually chosen to be in the country of a member company who acts as host. Attendance is normally around 70 -80 people and alongside the technical programme there is an important social programme for both delegates and their partners.In 2012 the IPHA annual conference was held in Split, Croatia and hosted by the Mucic company and organised by their sister company Elenas Travel DMC. I had the pleasure of co-ordinating the whole event with Ms Lucija Boras of that company and can say it was one of the best ever experienced by IPHA. Everything from accommodation to excursions was first class and is memorable to this day. Coatia is of course a beautiful country and is naturally enhanced when you are hosted by knowledgeable and charming local people.

The services provided by Elenas Travel DMC were as agreed and beyond. Their expertise was greatly welcomed by the organizing committee who already had experience in organizing meetings in the past. Lucija and her staff were very successful in aranging the perfect meeting location and tours all around Croatia dealing with the planning budgeting, registration, abstracts and programme book. They updated the organizing committee on all aspects of the meeting and solved issues quickly and smoothly. They proposed a perfect unique historical venues for dinner for all delegates to come together in a very pleasant atmosphere. Their professionalism was a greatly appreciated, not only by the organizing committee, but all delegates expressed their gratitude. Their outstanding skills and their open and friendly attitude throughout the entire meeting were inspiring for all participants, their itineraries were bespoke, one for a lifetime.

Winter vacation Jahorina
My lovely gf and I planned our recent vacation with Elenas Travel DMC. They made the process smooth, seamless, and stress free! Once we start our journey ,they help us handle everything from transport from the airport, accommodations and even activities and excursions. Everything was on one itinerary that we were able to print out and take with us, and included detailed descriptions and instructions including where to meet our driver at the airport, what their uniform would look like and what type of car they would be driving. The resort, amenities and service were amazing, and the food was over the top phenomenal! We had great time thanks to Elenas Travel and their team. We will definitely plan our next vacation with them🙌🏻
