George Maroutsos, President Greek Union of Air Travel Agencies (PETAGA)
Philoxenia 2012 greeting.
Any type of travel is, by nature, global and connects people in a way that creates synergies and collaboration.
We congratulate the organizers of Philoxenia for their efforts to establish a truly international event in Thessaloniki, which I believe will contribute significantly to business growth and recovery in our sector.
The Greek Union of Air Travel Agencies fully supports Philoxenia 2012.
Philoxenia represents a great opportunity for market exposure and also a vehicle for industry interaction and growth. I believe that visitors will find an ideal platform to seek business opportunities and development.
In this aspect, we are very pleased from the expected large number of buyers from many countries that will attend this year’s exhibition.
Moreover, Philoxenia creates an ideal environment for our Greek colleagues to meet, exchange views, network, and target the international market more effectively.
No need to say that despite the difficulties of the Greek economy, the travel industry in our country remains a dynamic, extrovert sector and its people are dedicated to offer quality service.
I wish for this year’s exhibition to be full of business opportunities for our foreign guests and valuable for the Greek travel industry.
