Head of promotions sector, National Tourism Agency – Albania, Sokol Kongoli shared his impressions of this year's World Travel Market, London, with TTG informing that Albania's stand attracted a lot of visitors.
These included PR companies, not only from the UK but also from Germany, Belgium and other European countries.
"We even had a PR company from India approaching us with interest to establish business links with the Albanian tourism sector," Kongoli said, adding that the team presenting Albania onsite was also approached by a number of international media representatives interested in featuring the country and its offerings on their platforms and in their programmes.
When asked about the kind of information the Albanian delegation is promoting to trade visitors at the show, Kongoli said: "The information requests we are receiving at the show are mixed, but more than 50 per cent are interested in cultural tourism. Also, there is a great interest in outdoor tourism experiences."

Past & Present Journeys, ATHS, Albania Explorer, Outdoor Albania, Elite Travel, Europa Travel & Tours, Sondor Travel & Tours, Albania Holidays, Global Tours, Adventure & Fun Albania, Albtours D, ADA Travel & Tours, Agency Van Gogh and Promet T&T.
