Greece to sponsor the WTM 2011 International Press Centre

World Travel Market, the leading global event for the travel industry, is delighted to announce that the Greek National Tourism Organisation is once again sponsoring the WTM International Press Centre.

The WTM International Press Centre has gone from strength to strength with Greece as its sponsor, this includes being voted one of, if not, THE best press offices, in the travel and tourism industry for both 2009 and 2010*.

This has given Greece the platform to promote its tourism offering to the world through the almost 3,000 media that attend WTM every year.

On the opening day of World Travel Market, GNTO will hold their annual press conference highlighting all the new tourism initiatives they have planned for the coming year; more information is available at

The WTM International Press Centre is the largest recurring press centre in the UK attracting nearly 3,000 international media from the world’s major media organisations – from trade and consumer publications across print, broadcast and the internet - throughout the four days of the event.


A full comprehensive programme is in place for press including conferences covering the latest trends, travel hot spots and industry developments. The entire events programme as well specific press events can be found in the WTM Media Diary of Events, distributed at WTM and also available online.

A hospitality area, cloakroom facilities, a dedicated working area and the exhibitor press pack area are to name a few of the other exclusive facilities on offer to ensure press can make the most out of their time at WTM.

Reed Travel Exhibitions Director World Travel Market Simon Press said: “The Greek National Tourism Organisation’s renewed sponsorship of the WTM International Press Centre is a great testament to the quality of WTM and the International Press Centre.

“This is the seventh consecutive year Greece has supported the WTM International Press Centre and we are delighted to continue this relationship to ensure they get the most out of their time at World Travel Market.”

GNTO Director UK & Ireland Sofia Panayiotakis said “GNTO is a proud sponsor of the press centre, in recognition of the essential press guidance.

“There is many ways to enjoy a truly memorable visit to Greece, but without Journalists, to search, introduce and inspire, many wonderful experiences in Greece, holiday makers may never take the initial step!

“Thank you very much for your support, all these years! We are looking forward to welcoming you again!”
