Let’s put it this way – you have a lot of money, and in an exclusive location, the Maldives, Iceland, the plateau in the Andes, or in Croatia you want to invest in a first-class luxury resort? Who will you take to manage and lead it all? Our keynoter. Zoran Pejović will hold a keynote called Modern Luxury Travel – between technology and ideology. Panel discussion Are climate change and the trend of sustainability a Croatian opportunity? will moderate Oleg Maštruko, Director of the 3T Conference. The Bug media house announces the fourth edition of the conference 3T – Tourism, Travel and Tech, which deals with the merger of companies and professionals from two leading Croatian sectors – the information industry and tourism. 3T conference is the first conference that unites tourism and IT, as the leading and most important branches of the Croatian economy. Technology is the key to optimization and success in the tourism business, and the 3T conference will provide you with answers on how to make the best use of modern technology and make business in tourism more efficient and better. The main leitmotif of this year’s edition of the 3T conference is climate – sustainability – technology. The worlds of technology and tourism have never been more strongly connected. It has never been more important to be on event which connects the two most successful Croatian industries. Tourists need to introduce more tech, and technicians, of course, need to sell their knowledge and skills to someone. The fourth 3T will take place March 19 at Kaptol Boutique Cinema in Zagreb. The number of participants last year was around 280, and the same is expected this year as well. “The tourism industry, globally, is not showing signs of slowing down. During the second quarter of 2019 the number of global hotel capacities in pipeline reached a record 1.704 hotels with an incredible 260.111 rooms, an increase of 23 percent for hotels and 19 percent for rooms compared to last year (year over year, YOY). Such events in the field of tourism, of course, open opportunities for IT and tech, which have always been actually service industries, ie those that support another activity, and are not an end in themselves. So how much has technology changed the world of tourism, and how much have these changes affected the lives of locals, people living in a certain territory? How does technology contribute / shape the development of your business in the tourism industry? To what extent can the continuous growth of tourist traffic be sustainable? The impact of tourism growth on the quality of life of the local population? Why are more and more cities restricting rentals through AirBNB and similar services? Can tourism be sustainable and how the development of technology helps or hinders us in this, and how to maintain the quality of life at the desired level with the growth of tourist traffic? Future Tourism Applications – Will VR and AR reduce the need for physical travel to a location and thus solve part of the problem? Who even wants to travel that way? – these are some of the issues we will try to open at this year’s edition of the conference “, he pointed out Oleg Maštruko, Director of the 3T Conference.last_img read more

Howard Chang (left) vote for a resolution for a housing pilot program. – Ani Kolangian | Daily TrojanResolutions serve as USG’s formal method of communicating the collective opinion of the student body to the administration.The Senate unanimously chose to defer a vote on the gender-neutral bathroom resolution for two weeks because it was based off a survey with a small sample size of 94 students.“My concern is not on the issue itself,” said USG Senate Pro Tempore and Vice President-elect Vinnie Prasad during discussion of the resolution. “The purpose of a resolution is to represent the entire student body. We believe that most students want this, but we can’t say that we know.”Some students said they believe gender-neutral bathrooms are unnecessary.“I don’t really see the need for it if there are already men’s bathrooms and women’s bathrooms,” said Craig Handy, a senior majoring in business administration.Residential Sen. Keshav Tyagi, who authored the gender-neutral bathroom resolution, said, however, the bathrooms are necessary in making the campus a more comfortable environment for transgender students.Tyagi said he is in favor of tabling the resolution to gather more survey responses. Three to four senators will volunteer to serve on a committee to elicit more input on the gender-neutral housing issue, USG Vice President Logan Lachman said.The gender-neutral housing resolution, which the Senate passed unanimously, proposes a pilot program on the Rainbow Floor, a special interest community for LGBT students and allies in Century Apartments.Many students said such a program would benefit participants without hindering those who do not partake.“It could please a lot of people and it wouldn’t affect other people if they didn’t want to participate in it,” said Amanda Mitchell, a freshman majoring in international relations.During the meeting, Greek Sen. Andres Guarnizo-Ospina introduced a resolution in support of a renovation plan for Leavey Library. According to the resolution, an architectural firm conducted an assessment of a possible Leavey renovation last summer. In addition, Dean of Libraries Catherine Quinlan hosted focus groups with students, faculty and staff.“The renovation is hopefully something that students will be interested in doing,” Guarnizo-Ospina said. “A lot of people think Leavey is outdated, from what I can gather.”The Leavey Library resolution will be voted on after spring break.last_img read more
