On the second day of the ITB tourism exhibition in Berlin, the GNTO hosted the “Robola Happy Hour” wine and cheese event and informed foreign tour operators, travel journalists and bloggers on the latest developments in regards to Kefalonia.

While speaking to the press, the island’s hotel association’s president, Spyros Galiatsatos, informed that all accommodation units would operate regularly during the upcoming tourism season.

According to Mr. Galiatsatos, initial indicators are showing that Kefalonia should expect a two-digit increase in arrival this season.
