More Than 40,000 Visitors in Portonovi During Spring Saga
Numerous events and exciting programs took place in Portonovi this spring and announced the opening of the summer season. Portonovi Spring Saga - organized from April 28 to May 7 with a varied program for visitors and guests of all generations, was an excellent introduction to everything waiting for us this summer.
Last week, Portonovi reached a record in visitor numbers thanks to the events that gathered over 40,000 guests to the resort from Montenegro, the region, and the world. Visitors enjoyed the market with well-known caterers, One&Only Portonovi, Cantina 65, Idea, Friends House, Auntie's House, Maison du Monde, House of Azerbaijan, and Bel Paese, with their wide range of sweet and savory products, such as pancakes, waffles, pizzas, salads, doughnuts, pies and much more interesting for both adults and children.
The spring market was closed on Sunday, and in addition to tasty delicacies, last ten days, visitors enjoyed Jelena Rozga’s concert, local klapa and DJ performances, sports events for kids, Ludo tournament, ex-Yu cars exhibition, and tours to Tito’s Villa, dance performances, concert for the International Dance Day, and Mirror Crew performance.
There was great interest in Jelena Rozga's concert, and she gathered around 6,000 people in Portonovi Marina Square, which went even further through social networks. The video of her performance is another video soon to have a million views,“ said the Director of Marketing and Communications at Portonovi, Adrijana Husić.
"This year, we started the season earlier, relying on the previous success of - not only our Holiday Season - but also the Mimosa Festival organized by the Municipality of Herceg Novi. This way, we enable the continuity necessary to attract larger numbers of guests and extend the duration of the season itself. This is particularly important because Montenegro continues to position itself as a destination; in addition to good connectivity, which is a prerequisite, and natural beauty, which is unquestionable, the content we offer must be attractive to guests.
For this reason, we are trying to organize activities through Portonovi that have not been or were rarely organized until now. Thus, for the first time in Montenegro, Pizana Gallery visitors will have an exclusive opportunity to see an exhibition of sold-out expensive licensed exhibits (statues) of the most famous media franchises modeled after the famous ComicCon - WonderCon Montenegro Sneak Preview," added Husić.
