LONDON, England, 2020-Nov-05 — /Travel PR News/ — London-based communications agency, Black Diamond, has been chosen by The National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro (NTO Montenegro) as their PR representatives in the UK during WTM Virtual.
Along with ongoing press office activities, Black Diamond will be supporting the team at WTM Virtual next week, during which NTO Montenegro will be making some exciting announcements and plans for 2021.
Tourism accounted for 32% of GDP in 2019 when Montenegro welcomed 81,000 UK travellers to the country, an increase of 30% year on year.
Recent years have seen well-known upscale hotel brands invest in the country and Montenegro’s Adriatic Coast is now home to the 5* Regent Porto Montenegro, Aman’s Sveti Stefan, The Chedi Luštica Bay in Marina Village, Iberostar Grand Perast and many five-star boutique hotels. The properties join luxury brands NOBU, Hilton, Voco, Four Points, Ramada, Centreville, Best Western, and Falkensteiner in making Montenegro their home.
Located on the Balkan Peninsula, this is a country that has long been a melting pot of cultures, civilisations and religions. Surrounded by natural beauty, Montenegro offers big experiences in a small and accessible environment. From the Montenegrin hills to the beauty of the Adriatic Coast; nature reserves and national parks; caves and canyons to 117 beaches along a coastline over 180 miles long, all embraced by the caring faces of locals and traditional hospitality.
Sarah Barnett, Head of PR & Communications at Black Diamond, said: “We’re thrilled to be chosen by NTO Montenegro as their partners in the UK. We’re looking forward to bringing the country to life in the UK market and making it a must-visit destination in 2021 when travel resumes.”
Black Diamond brings to the account a wealth of destination positioning experience having retained a number of travel and tourism clients over its 27 years in business.
