Interview with Tasos Shakallis
Founder / Director of the Lavris Benefit Group
Cyprus Alive spoke with the Founder / Director of the Lavris Club Benefit Group, Mr. Tasos Shakallis. Read the interview below to find out more about this amazing Club.
- When was the Lavris Club Benefit Group founded?
Lavris Club was founded in 1996 and was acquired in January 2003 by my company, TKS LTD. I expanded the Lavris group in the decade 2004 - 2014. The recession "kourema" of 2013 and the following difficult years (2014 - 2016) of the economy, affected and reduced the group's turnover and mainly the organisation of events - excursions. During the same time period, the group also has been cooperating since 2009 with a large banking organisation for a discount plan in hundreds of stores and businesses for visa holders. My plans have always been to reorganise holidays and events for its members, so in 2020 during the time of the coronavirus, the plans have been implemented. The moments we spent with the members of the group in our organised events and excursions were unique and unforgettable and for this reason the return of these events was considered necessary by all.
- How did the new name Ela na Pame come about?
For the return of the Club to excursions. We thought of returning with something new, because we wanted to feel the renewal and we wanted to give the opportunity to people who knew us as a group, but were not our members, to feel more welcome on our new website.
- Does one have to become a member to enjoy the benefits?
No! You do not need to be a member, anyone can buy our coupons and take advantage of our offers.
- What is the benefit of being a member?
If someone becomes a member, they will have all their purchases stored on their account so that they can see the history of their purchases, this may be useful information for them in the future. They will also be updated about our special offers and other useful information about our coupons and offers.
- Is there a cost to becoming a member?
No, being a member is completely free.
- What does Lavris Club and the website www.elanapame.com offer?

Definitely all this at very low prices. We choose to work with hotels and businesses that we know, have visited and checked to be sure of the result.
- How does Lavris Club work? How does one benefit from your offers?
