7th International Scientific-Business Conference – LIMEN 2021 – Leadership, Innovation, Management and Economics: Integrated Politics of Research – CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, Online/virtual, December 16, 2021, published by the Association of Economists and Managers of the Balkans, Belgrade; Printed by: SKRIPTA International, Belgrade, ISBN 978-86-80194-54-7, ISSN 2683-6149, DOI:

PIPRECIA method;
WISP method;
Tourism products;
Republic of Serbia



The main intention of this paper is to emphasize the crucial tour­ism products that will contribute to the tourism development of the Repub­lic of Serbia. With that aim, the Multiple-Criteria Decision-Making – MCDM approach is proposed based on the PIvot Pairwise RElative Criteria Impor­tance Assessment – PIPRECIA and the Simple Weighted Sum Product – WISP methods. PIPRECIA method is applied for defining the criteria weights, while the WISP method is used for ranking the considered tourism products. The final results are reliable and the tourism product City break is emphasized as the one with the greatest potential.
