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 & Thera have been planning for this event. A great number of volunteers is also contributing to make your stay and visit a memorable one. We are putting together a programme which includes many of the social and cultural highlights that Crete island has to offer to you all. 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 will help us to keep costs down for you. The facility of the FEG meeting website which was developed by Sebastian Frankenberger and myself for the 2017 Dublin FEG AGM will be of great help for you and the organisers again this year for our next Crete FEG Meeting 2018. To all those who have helped or will help to put this event together I am sending my 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 in spring 2018 on the FEG Meeting website link here below.

Fellow tourist guides and friends,
It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we look forward to your visit with us at the 19th Annual Tourist Guide Meeting and FEG AGM in Dublin in November. Our hardworking committee have been planning for the event for nearly two years and they have managed to put together a programme which includes many of the social and cultural highlights that Ireland has to offer. In addition to the committee a significant number of our members have volunteered to help with various aspects of the running of the event so you will also get a chance to meet them during your visit with us. Without sponsorship, an event such as this would be very expensive. We have had a fantastic response from many sponsors which helped to keep costs down and they are highlighted on our sponsors page. This year is the first year that we will have the facility of the FEG meeting website which was developed by Efi Kalampoukidou and Sebastian Frankenberger. This development will be a great facility for future meetings.
To all those who helped to pull this event together I say a ‘go raimh mile maith agat’ (a thousand thanks). To the participants I look forward to meeting you and showing you a special Irish welcome. Whether you decide to come for one part of the event of all three, I promise you an interesting, entertaining and memorable visit with us in November.

our meeting of European tourist guides in Brno was just fantastic: informative, with enough free time, musically inspiring and brought our community more together.
Many thanks to Marina and Stanislav and the whole Czech organization team for the great hospitality.
