Dorset Park Director Secures Top Post
Dorset park owner Martin Cox has been appointed as the new president of the European Federation of Campingsite Organisations & Holiday Park Associations (EFCO&HPA).
Martin was elected by members of the international body, which represents more than 20,000 holiday park businesses across Europe and will serve as president for two years.
As president, Martin will play a key part in helping shape tourism and job creation policies affecting holiday parks in membership of national trade associations. He will also help steer EFCO&HPA’s lobby work with the European Commission which aims to ensure the sector’s interests are taken into account during decision-making processes.
Martin, who is a director of West Dorset Leisure Holidays and former national chairman of the British Holiday & Home Parks Association, commented: “Right across Europe, holiday parks welcome millions of visitors each year and make a massive financial contribution to regional and national economies.
“The federation’s work helps to safeguard everybody’s interests, and also creates a pan-European platform on which members can share new ideas and initiatives.”
