    Zadar Cruise Port is Port of the Year 2019

    Zadar Cruise Port has been named the Port of the Year at the Seatrade Cruise Awards 2019 announced as part of the CLIA Germany Gala Dinner on the occasion of Seatrade Europe 2019. Leading to the award, Zadar Cruise Port has made the most significant improvements to its handling facilities and cruise-tourism infrastructure over the past year.

    New Zadar Cruise Port General Manager Rebeka V. Pevec said: "This is truly tremendous success, we are all very proud and honored that our port is awarded as Port of the Year 2019. This award is recognition to our entire team in Zadar and at Global Ports Holding for all the hard work, but it is also motivation and obligation to continue with further development and growth. Since we are the first Croatian cruise port to win this award, this is also an exceptional promotion of the Zadar City, Zadar region, and Croatia. Zadar is a beautiful city and Zadar County has so much to offer. Our goal and our wish, as port and as destination, is to be recognized for our hospitality, professionalism and security. ", said Pevec.

    "Ever since Zadar Cruise Port joined our global network, we have been fully committed to introducing the best port management practices and standards that we gained through years of experience. We are extremely happy and proud of this award given by a jury of eminent leaders of the industry, as it is a confirmation of all the hard work the Zadar county and the port authority and Global Ports Holding have put into the port. This motivates us to continue our work in Zadar and in all other ports we operate”, said Emre Sayın, CEO of Global Ports Holding.

    “Only a year after signing the concession agreement, we are seeing the first major results of our collaboration with Global Ports Holding. As we have already emphasized, it turns out that a combination of excellent infrastructure and one of the world's largest port operators is the best possible way to build the recognition of Zadar and Zadar County as a world-class cruise tourism destination. Visitors are intertwined in this vision with a pleasant and functional port, with a strong focus on introducing alternative fuels and protecting the climate and building an attractive destination that preserves natural beauty and reveals Croatia's cultural heritage in the most beautiful light", said Zadar Port Authority General Manager Robert Škifić.

    For more than ten years Seatrade Cruise Awards has been offering recognition for both industry categories and personality and community awards. Each year hundreds of ports get nominated in several categories which makes Zadar Cruise Port winning extremely significant for Zadar's tourism and economy, as well as for the whole Croatia tourism and economy development.
