South Aegean Region Sets Sights on Senior Travelers

As part of its ongoing strategy towards the expansion of the tourism season across the islands, the South Aegean Region is now focusing its efforts on the seasoned senior traveler with activities and events in Central and Northern Europe, including participation in this year’s international Senior Det Goda Livet expo in Stockholm.

The South Aegean Region will be the “honored region” at the Senior exhibition, which will run October 18-20.

In this direction, the South Aegean Region is planning to draw up a specific strategy aiming to bring in senior travelers to Greece all year around, with the Dodecanese island of Rhodes at the epicenter of senior travel due to its advanced infrastructure and facilities as well as proximity to other islands.
