GNTO To Participate In 54 International Travel Fairs

GNTO's stand at international exhibitionThe Greek National Tourism Organization will participate in 54 international tourism fairs in the first quarter of 2010, which will include the country’s first time participation in exhibitions of alternative and special forms of tourism, according to a recent announcement made by Deputy Culture and Tourism Minister Angela Gerekou.

According to the deputy minister, the selection of the specific exhibitions depended on where Greece’s tourism product would receive the highest promotion in line with a drastic reduction of expenses, compared with previous years.

Mrs. Gerekou stressed that after negotiations with construction companies, costs were cut 20-40 percent compared to 2009.

Last month the GNTO participated in a total of 14 international tourism exhibitions. The organization’s participation will grow this month, as it will take part in 22 travel fairs.

GNTO’s participation in international tourism fairs will continue in March as it is scheduled to take part in another 18 exhibitions.
