On behalf of Marriot International the agreement was signed by Silvija Lovreta, director of development for Southeast Europe.
– Marriott is also the regional leader in the hotel business, with hotels in Sarajevo, Belgrade, Zagreb, Skopje and other cities, and the progress of Banjaluka should certainly be accompanied by the development of hotel capacities in the city – Lovreta said.
