Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is the city where 2017 CITA General Assembly and Conference is to take place.
Zagreb is a cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of Croatia. It is home to the Croatian Parliament, Government and the President. It is situated in the geographical, cultural, historical and political intersections between Europe’s East and West, connecting continental and Mediterranean spirit in a unique whole.
A quarter of the Croatian population lives in Zagreb, i.e. a million inhabitants. People have been coming to Zagreb from different parts of Europe and Croatia for centuries, making the town ever richer with their culture and customs.
Zagreb has won numerous awards, including the 6th Best Destination in Europe (2015) and the Best Christmas Market.
It is not surprising that in the last years Zagreb has become one of the most popular and most visited European destination.

ABOUT THE HOST
The Center for Vehicles of Croatia (Centar za vozila Hrvatske d.d. (CVH)) has been carrying out technical inspection of vehicles since 1972, when this activity was present in only a few European countries.
As an expert organisation, CVH organises and monitors the work of all vehicle technical inspection stations (STP) in Croatia, continually publishes instructions for vehicle technical inspection and related activities, calibrates measuring devices at inspection stations, ensures adequate IT and technical support for all the activities at inspection stations, trains present and future employees and introduces new technologies in technical inspection and related activities.
The mission of CVH is to ensure that the activities of technical inspection of vehicles and extending vehicle registration documents are carried out in a professional and legal manner, and so are the activities of inspecting vehicles for the purpose of determining compliance (homologation) and other activities carried out at technical inspection stations.
The Center for Vehicles of Croatia was the host and organizer of the 11th CITA Conference held in Zagreb from 10 November to 12 November 1982. According to the CITA leadership at the time, that was the most visited Conference up to that point and was considered very successful and well organized.
“We are delighted about the fact that Vehicle Center of Croatia JSC is again going to be the organizer of the CITA Conference in Zagreb after 35 years”
