The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino, was recognized with the EHMA Sustainability Award by Diversey Care in 2013 and awarded the Green Key 2013 eco-label which honors commitment to the environment and the implementation of ecologically sustainable projects in the hotel industry.

For Costa Navarino the holding of such an event is of major importance as the resort will now extend its tourism season until mid-December, when it will shut down for the winter.

The luxury coastal resort complex has also been chosen to host the 2015 Travel Convention of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA). The convention will take place at Costa Navarino during 12-14 October 2015. This will be first time Greece will host the Convention since it was held on Kos in 2000.
