Karen L. Preston, Manager, Communications, The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd.
InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel Cyprus has appointed since 1st April 2009 Smart Ideas of Glyfada, Athens as its sole PR representative for the promotion of its 5 star award winning resort “Aphrodite Hills” on the Greek market. Until now Smart Ideas has handled all InterContinental Aphrodite Hill’s media relations requirements in Greece very professionally and effectively; their work has helped raise the resort’s exposure in the Greek market. As a result of their leads we have seen an increase in our visitors from Greece and hosted several high profile groups. They are a very friendly team, who always make themselves available and which we would highly recommend to any establishment.

Over the three years I have known and worked with Penny Georgakopoulou and her PR company ‘Smart Ideas’ my team and I have been impressed with the quality of her work as a PR representative of Leading Hotels of the World in Greece. She has twice organized press visits to our property, Rayavadee in Krabi, of the highest quality: bringing journalists and editors from Greece’s top magazines and newspapers with great results both times. I believe this shows how well Penny and team are connected to the media in their country and her follow up is excellent as well. In addition, Penny herself is a lovely person, very friendly and helpful and wonderful to work with. A real pleasure and I am very glad to recommend her services to anyone who may be looking to increase their PR exposure in the Greek market.
