The UK-based representation company has worked informally with Welcome Swiss and Welcome Italy this year before signing an official partnership.
GTA partner Alan Wodzynski said: "Many agencies have advised us that that they have problems finding a really good DMC in Italy. So far Welcome has deservedly earned praise from some of our key contacts. We are delighted to be able to offer both important destinations with a DMC who truly does match proposal to brief."
GT Associates also has partner DMC’s in Turkey, Malta, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, The Balearics, Morocco and Ireland.
