Message from ABTA's Chief Executive

“I am very pleased to reveal Costa Navarino as the host destination for our 2024 Travel Convention. Rich in natural beauty and a remarkable cultural heritage, this emerging area of Greece is a brilliant addition to the country’s tourism offering. I know our delegates will thoroughly enjoy experiencing everything the area has to offer and raising its profile with UK travellers.


“We’re returning to Greece at a time when the country is developing its tourism offering to attract visitors all-year round. With UK holidaymakers increasingly looking to travel out of peak season, I’m excited to offer the opportunity for delegates to explore this destination, which has seen continued development since it hosted the Convention almost ten years ago.”

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive, ABTA
