Dear Members and Delegates of the ASTA Annual Convention,

                                              A warm welcome to all of you, on behalf of AEGEAN.

                                              We are very pleased to support this convention, since the cooperation between
                                              the  Associations  of  Travel  &  Tourist  Agencies  of  USA  and  Greece  is  very
                                              important to us. We are aware that Greece is one of top destinations for US
                                              travelers and we are very happy indeed to participate.

                                              AEGEAN  consistently  supports  initiatives  to  promote  incoming  tourism  in
                                              Greece. We achieve that through synergies and seamless cooperation with local
                                              authorities  and  institutions  operating  in  the  tourism  industry  in  order  to
                                              promote our country. Under this scope, we showcase the little secrets across
                                              Greece, we promote our culture and local products. Our goal is to provide the
                                              visitor a unique travel experience and give him an onboard taste of Greece before
                                              he arrives to his destination.

                                              commitment to increase the incoming tourism in Athens, in the Greek islands
                                              and the country’s mainland.
