Our President & CEO Martin Barth visited Greece to work on a new collaboration with the Region of Peloponnese. The Peloponnese Region is an ideal partner for the pilot cooperation program in sustainable tourism product development. Regional governor Petros Tatoulis noted that regional authorities are working on a sustainable model for the parallel development of tourism in harmony with community needs. Best practices will be presented at World Tourism Forum Lucerne in May 2019.
