Last year, Greece was one of the most popular summer tourist destinations, therefore, Austrian travel agencies are rather optimistic about the summer season of 2015. Meanwhile, GNTO has organized meetings with journalists and tourism operators, showcasing Greek products, wine tasting, music events and contests with questions regarding Greek destinations and travel packages as well as accommodation.
The GNTO stand will also include co-exhibitors and representatives from various Greek locations such as Attica, Crete, the Ionian Islands, Thessaly, Pelion, Volos, and Rhodes, as well as tourism businesses, while the region of North Aegean will be provided with its own stand.
