At the opening, Mr. Vučković pointed out that the fair was a significant step forward and that the objective of the project was to connect the continental and coastal Croatia, as well as that he hoped that the producers from other parts of Croatia would get an opportunity to exhibit their products at the Adriatic coast. The deputy mayor of the city of Trogir, Mr. Radovan Slade-Šilović, also attended the opening.
