Quality and category system aknowledged
| Marteinn Njálsson
Cooperation with the Icelandic Tourist Board
Hey Iceland has signed an agreement with the Icelandic Tourist Board making the category and quality system of Hey Iceland officially aknowledged. Together they will strive to ensure that the quality system is in agreement with official standards and goals. In addition to that Hey Iceland will promote the use of the category system of the Icelandic Tourist Board among its members.
In 1986, Hey Iceland was the first within the Icelandic tourist industry to impliment such a quality and category system. The purpose of the system was to introduce certain standards among the members of Hey Iceland and their guests. The system was reviewed the years 2002-2004 and adjusted further to international standards and with in mind the current situation of the Hey Iceland members. Hey Iceland believes that the involvement of the Icelandic Tourist Board will increase the credibility of the system.
Mr. Magnús Oddsson manager of the Icelandic Tourist Board and Mr. Marteinn Njálsson chairman of the board of Association of Hey Iceland sign the agreement. Behind then from left, Mr. Elías Bj.
