Costa Navarino Developer TEMES in the Running for ‘WTM Responsible World Tourism Award’

World Travel Market (WTM) London, the leading global event for the travel industry, has announced that Greek company TEMES has been shortlisted for a WTM Responsible World Tourism Award.

The WTM Responsible Tourism Awards recognise businesses and destinations that make responsible tourism their focus and inspire others.

According to Reed Exhibitions, WTM London’s organizer, after an extensive process, 21 businesses and destinations, from 21 countries, have been recognised along with TEMES as finalists in the ‘WTM Global Responsible Tourism Awards’ within the ‘Rest of the World’ category and the ‘Global Award’.

TEMES, which belongs to the Konstantakopoulos family, is a leading investor, developer and operator in the high-end tourism and real estate sector in Greece. Costa Navarino, its flagship development, is a prime, sustainable destination and one of the largest tourism investments in the Mediterranean. Costa Navarino is located in the Greek region of Messinia in the southwest Peloponnese.
