TZ Splita launched the #TogetherInSplit campaign

first_imgHowever, today the Tourist Board of Split, as the first tourist board in Croatia (at least as far as I know) published a video referring to the time in which we are where tourism has literally stopped. Many tourist boards have directed communication according to time with narrative and messages in the context of staying home, traveling later. “The world has come to a stand still, because that is the only way it can start moving again. But, we are waiting for you and once again we will be”- #TogetherInSplit If you have any other positive examples from Croatia, feel free to let us know at vijesti@hrturizam.hr In Croatia, unfortunately, we do not have some positive examples, let alone creative or different from others, except for the invitation to publish old pictures from the destination. Although more than 30 days have passed since self-isolation or the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic in Europe, it is never too late to start communicating in line with the current situation. Although we can’t call one video as a complete campaign, we will definitely follow what is in the current communication plan of the #TogetherInSplit campaign. We always have to communicate, especially in a crisis situation.last_img read more

Emery urges Arsenal to ‘write a new history’ as Liverpool loom

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsenal boss Unai Emery wants to help the club “write a new history” as the Gunners seek to turn around their miserable record against their major Premier League rivals, starting with Liverpool on Saturday.Last season Arsenal, under Arsene Wenger, took just six points from matches against other members of the “Big Six”.In sharp contrast, champions Manchester City picked up 24 points from the 30 on offer against Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham.The difficulties stretch even further back, with Arsenal taking only 26 points from those fixtures since the start of the 2015/16 campaign — 18 fewer than the next team, Chelsea.The Spaniard started his tenure with losses against City and Chelsea but has not tasted defeat since then, guiding Arsenal to 12 wins from their past 13 games in all competitions.“We want to write a new history,” said the former Paris Saint-Germain coach.“The new history is in the present and also, with our players, our quality and our capacity, I believe in my players and this project. We are starting this project with a very positive way with what we are doing.” Emery said the early defeats still play on his mind as he prepares his team for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.“The result tomorrow is very important but first I want to show them, to show you and to show everybody our best mentality in the game,” he said.“I know if we have a very big mentality in the game and a very big performance individually and collectively — and also we need some luck — then I think we can win.”Emery could be without a host of defenders, with Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis Papastathopoulos all to be assessed before the game.Granit Xhaka could again deputise at left-back but that has been complicated by the fact fellow midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is suspended.“There are doubts but we are going to wait to see if we can use one or another player in the full-back positions,” said Emery. “But if they cannot play we are going to play another player.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
