Welcome to the Croatian Camping Days!

In the past fifteen years, the Congress of Croatian Camping, organized by CCA, has imposed itself as the central event for the gathering and exchange of knowledge and experience, education and meeting of representatives of the Croatian camping sector and related activities.

From the first event, held in 2007, to last year's 15th Congress of Croatian Camping, more than 3.800 participants met and exchanged experiences, saw development trends and figures of European and Croatian campsites, learned about tools and ways of promotion, met and agreed on co-operation with CNTB representatives from some of the most eminent European markets, talked to foreign experts from campsites, advertising and related activities, received inspiration and new ideas for improving their quality and adapting to the expectations of camping guests (glamping, mobile homes, aqua parks, luxury camps, service quality etc.), saw the latest innovative mobile homes models, as well as other various camping equipment and much more.

At the same time, and not less important, the issues of future developments and current obstacles have always been debated together with the issue of raising the general competitiveness level of the Croatian camping sector.

As part of the Congress, the best campsites will be awarded with special quality prizes - Croatia's Best Campsites, OK mini camps and the slovenian quality award Naj Kamp Adria.

The last three years will be remembered as some of the most challenging so far, both for the camping sector and for the society as a whole. Nonetheless, it is exactly the current situation that motivates us to be even more prepared for the upcoming year and the camping season 2023, in the hope that we will remember it, as we did for the many previous ones, as a good one.

Once again, we believe that we have prepared some very interesting and trending topics for all participants.
