Welcome to the Skål International Annual World Congress 2022

14 October 2022

Dear Fellow Skålleagues

I am looking forward to hosting you at our annual world congress in Croatia. Just like the shape of Croatia is unlike any other country in the world, this congress also promises to be different, not only as we meet in person after 2 years but also as we face a different world after the pandemic.

As dreams drive us into the future and memories take us back to unforgettable times, I am confident that this congress will be a perfect mix of the two.

REthinking Tourism, the pertinent theme for Tourism Month, empowers our mindset to change and allows us an opportunity to plant new seeds to share with our fellow members.

Let us all be RE energized while RE affirming our RElationships as we REalize that we belong to a REmarkable organization.

The objectives of attending an annual Skal World Congress are to have the opportunity to network with like-minded people and industry peers from all over the globe who share a common discipline. It also expands your knowledge while finding solutions to challenges facing our organization.

Of course, it provides a platform for people to get to know you on a one on one basis, where you can present your ideas while learning beyond your field of interest.

Our theme of REMINISCE.RENEW.REUNITE fits in perfectly with meeting at this congress as we can remember what was, renew our friendships, foundations and thoughts while reuniting in one place and under one roof. It is also a perfect platform to recreate a stage for new achievements.

As the members of Skal Croatia have prepared the stage to showcase their beautiful country and created the feelings of amicale, friendship and laughter, we are ready to make authentic connections through trust, collaboration, business and travel, a unique stage show that only a Skal World Congress can produce.

Let the positive energies flow and participation in the energy building continue throughout our congress!

Always, in Friendship and Skål,

Burcin Turkkan

World President 2022
