Syros Accommodation Body Launches Action Plan

The association representing accommodation facilities on the Cycladic island of Syros recently presented a new three-year action plan for 2017 in efforts to boost incoming tourism to the island, secure growth for Syros enterprise and strengthen the local economy.

The extensive scheme includes the creation and production of promotional material, boosting the digital presence of the island’s tourism enterprises, creating an online community, collaborating with local and international media and distribution channels, as well as offering services including seminars and workshops which will aid local professionals in upgrading the quality of services offered.

Besides collaborating with the private sector, a top priority for the association is to work with the public sector, including municipal and regional authorities, chambers of commerce and hoteliers, as well as with the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO).

Topping the agenda is creating a strong brand name for the island taking Syros from a mere location in the Aegean to a leading destination.
