Greece Shows Prospects as Conference Destination

Greece shows excellent prospects as a destination for conferences, corporate meetings and incentives: This conclusion was based on the results of the recent and first meeting of representatives from the Thessaloniki Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Hellenic Association of Professional Congress Organizers, the Athens-Attica Hotel Association and the Athens Convention Bureau.

The meeting, organized by the joint initiative of the Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau and its Thessaloniki counterpart, focused on the latest developments within the domestic and international conference market and issues concerning the conference market of Athens and Thessaloniki.

At a later meeting between Tourism Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos and the above-mentioned associations, it was decided to set up a work group between the associations and the Greek National Tourism Organization, which will prepare complete proposals and develop a specific action plan regarding tourism.
