The third edition of the Grekland Panorama, the exclusive travel fair for Greece and Cyprus in Stockholm, Sweden, is expected to attract even more Scandinavians than last year’s event which had seen visitor numbers reach some 11,000.
Organized by tourism consultants North Events, the 3rd Grekland Panorama Med Cypern will run from Saturday, February 13, until Sunday February 14, from 10am, at the Ericsson Globe. Admission is free for the public who will be able to enjoy several activities and events, large holiday offers, Greek cuisine and traditional Greek products, tastings-cooking demonstrations and special tourism themes.
According to the operator of the Ericsson Globe, Globen Arena, the Grekland Panorama Med Cypern is the largest exhibition hosted so far in its facilities. The fair has emerged as one of the leading tourism events in Stockholm and has established itself as one of the largest exhibitions organized annually in the country.
“The success of the exhibition is even more important when keeping in mind that this is a tourism fair only for Greece and Cyprus”, says North Events.
