Press Release – ITB 2020

28-February-2020
Lefkada, Greece

Dear Friends, Colleagues, Partners,

In aftermath of the sudden ongoing outbreak of COVID 19 in Europe, we regret having to cancel all meetings having been confirmed to take place at the ITB Berlin 2020 next week.

As our industry constantly seeks quality certifications, green keys, sustainable and responsible tourism methodology, we find no logic in participating in decisions that put thousands of colleagues and worldwide citizens in even the slightest percentage of any health risk.
We conclude, that the only responsible decision to safeguard not only our management team and employees and affiliated partners, but also the destination and resorts we operate in whole.

At the time, the only way to responsibly achieve safeguarding our local community seems to be the cancellation of our participation of the ITB 2020 in Berlin Germany.

We are sorry for the short time notice of this decision, as the past few days, the facts upon this decision is based, was in dramatic constant change while the majority of partners and other organizations have already shared these concerns, or have also proceeded in announcing cancellation of their participation.

Esiness Travel LTD will be reaching out to all scheduled meeting partners, within the next few days in order to make alternative conference meeting arrangements with each and every one of you, within the soonest possible timeframes.

Sincerely,

Spiros Mikronis
director
Esiness Destination Management Services LTD
