Crete: Draws Attention Of Canadian Tour Operators

Boosting Canadian tourism on the island of Crete was the focus of a meeting recently between the head of Crete Region, Stavros Arnaoutakis and some 48 Canadian tour operators. The Canadian delegation was headed by Nicole Bursey, the Air Transat sales promotion manager.

Welcoming the operators at the port of Heraklion, Arnaoutakis referred to the Crete's history, culture and comparative advantages. At the same time he noted that the island was a safe and quality tourist destination.

The Head of Crete also spoke warmly of Canada and the important contacts he had during his recent visit there, stressing that such contacts have paid off, both with regard to the promotion of Cretan products to Canada, as well as with regard to the enhanced numbers of Canadian tourists visiting Crete.

The tour operators said they were thrilled with the island, and apparently they expressed interest in striking deals with local travel and tourism businesses.
