Greetings by the host



Dear tourist guides and FEG member delegates,


It is a pleasure to invite you to the 20th FEG European Tourist Guide Meeting and AGM to be held in November 2018 in Heraklion, Crete island, Greece.

Our organising committee of the Panhellenic Tourist Guide Federation and particularly the colleagues of the Professional Tourist Guide Association of Crete & Santorini have been planning for this event. A great number of volunteers from Crete and Athens is also contributing to make your stay and visit a memorable one. We have put together a programme which includes many of the social and cultural highlights that Crete island has to offer to you all, as well as the classical sites of the Greek mainland for our post-meeting tour.

Our FEG accredited trainers will be ready once again to facilitate more FEG seminars for tourist guides’ life-long training in the Cretan venue. In addition, we make any possible effort to have many sponsors who help us to keep costs down for you. The facility of the present FEG meeting website which was first developed by colleague Sebastian Frankenberger and updated by Efi Kalampoukidou for the 2017 Dublin FEG AGM will be of great help to you and to the organisers again this year for our next Crete FEG Meeting & AGM in November 2018.

To all those who have helped or will help to put this event together, we are sending our huge thanks. We all look forward to meeting you and showing you some of the highlights of Crete island in our pre-meeting and in the main programme, as well as part of the Greek mainland on our post-meeting tour.

We promise you an interesting, entertaining and memorable visit in November 2018 and we look forward to welcoming you to Greece.

More details and registration applications can be found soon on this FEG Meeting website.

See you all in November in Greece!

Warm Regards,

Efi Kalampoukidou, President of the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG)
