Hector Fernandez, Chief Executive, Lanzarote Tourist Board, joint sponsor of the lunch with the Spanish Tourist Office, was delighted by the more than 200,000 visitors to the island in 2018. He thanked the trade for their support and, with new hotels and products, looked forward to a very special year in 2019.
