Every year, the Organizing Commission of PRO PR Awards gives a special recognition to the city of the conference’s host country. This year, the prestigious title of PRO PR Awards Vision City belongs to Šibenik, the oldest Croatian city of the Adriatic coast. The rich history of this city is entwined with admirable cultural heritage and natural beauty. After a long period of reduced prominence, it has once again became an important tourist centre of South Croatia. The recent blossoming of Šibenik is due to hard working individuals, openness to new ideas, investment in developing new quality projects and continued good communication.
