“I am very pleased with this re-election and with the opportunity, together with my management colleagues and ATA professionals, to continue the project we started in 2018 which has proven to be a winner, even during one of the most critical periods that the tourism sector has already known”, said João Fernandes.

“The coming years will certainly continue to be very challenging and demanding times for tourism in the Algarve, but I am confident that this team will know how to maintain the same combative spirit to continue to overcome obstacles with success, dedication and a lot of creativity”, he added.

For ATA's new management, the future of the region's external promotion involves strengthening the commitment to the diversity of the region's offer and consolidating the Algarve's international recognition as an authentic tourist destination of superior quality.
