Kalymnos is a Greek island, best known as home of the world’s finest sponge divers. The sponge fishing trade has shaped the island’s entire culture, something that is apparent almost everywhere on the island.

TBEX Europe gathers approximately 1,000 tourism reporters, bloggers, writers, content creators/contributors as well as professionals from the tourism market with activity in social media, from throughout the world. It is a three-day event, during which a series of meetings, educational seminars and presentations will take place with the participation of internationally renowned experts, social media influencers and celebrities. The event is accompanied by a rich program of social events and activities that showcase the host destination.

The selection of Athens as the host city for the event is an important development for the position and the image of the city but also for Greece in general in the international travel and tourism industry.

The event will be organized by the Municipality of Athens, the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA), the Athens Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB) and with the support of the Tourism Ministry and the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO).
