"I will be there at Locations Exhibition Conference till it Exists".

I am writing to thank you for another successful Locations Exhibition Conference.

2011 Again was good show for us and we are inundated with enquiries.
For November alone, we are expecting 8 production company representatives to visit us. They all look very promising.

Meetings arranged by Locations with Chennai Producers were excellent too. The time we had there was too short and missed out meeting quite a few other people who wanted to meet us. So thanks once again and let’s keep in touch.

Kind regards,

Florence Swamy
Acting Chief Executive Officer
Fiji Audio Visual Commission

First of all, please accept my apologies for the long wait before my feedback!

I didn't forget about follow up this amazing Locations event, however in 2 day I'm going to the other part of the world (Brazil) and am extremely busy in organizing a workshop.

This is not an excuse, jut I wanted letting you know that I will write down everything about this Unique Experience in Detail.
Only the Best,

Krisztina Basca
Destination Manager
Hungarian National Tourist Office

Thank you for your kind e-mail and concern. We arrived safely home to Croatia and consider our exhibiting at this years Locations the most rewarding and a unique experience.

When we decided to participate we didn`t know what to expect, it is absolutely a new approach to tourism promotion for us, but never the less a fantastic tool for promotion.

We did expect more exhibitors, but we can safely say that we were compensated by the great number of visitors on the other side (Filmmakers from Bollywood).

We shall communicate our experiences to other colleagues in Croatia and beyond , look forward to the next year.
I remain with kind regards,

Dubravka Mićić
Služba za promidžbu i komunikaciju

Locations was wonderful! – Thank you so much for this experience.

It was interesting, inspiring, and motivating, and I believe that we, not only Zagreb, but Croatia can offer a lot.

Even if it will take time, we shall not give up and will continue to attend the Locations. Looking forward to seeing you next year!
Best regards,

Dr. Sc. Amelia Tomašević / PhD
