Katerina Santikou, Business Development Manager for Santikos Collection comments,
“We are thrilled that for our first year operating and marketing to the UK we have such a robust and enthusiastic group of tour operators. All of which have shown excitement for our product and a real eagerness to start sharing it with their discerning clients. Without their help, we would not be able to hit our ambitious targets for next year. Re-launching a resort to a completely new market can be quite a daunting task but with their help we are confident that Marpunta Village is in good hands.”
