Aldemar Resorts was also honored at the Tourism Awards 2017 ceremony on Tuesday, March 21. The group received the gold award for the Sympossio Greek Gourmet Touring initiative in the category “Connecting tourism with other sectors of the Greek economy”.
In its eighth year running, the Sympossio event started in 2010 as an initiative of Angelopoulos. The event promotes synergies and aims to spread the message that “together we can do better” to boost Greece’s image and create favorable conditions for growth through the country’s culinary culture, products and services. Over time, the Sympossio has boosted Greece’s culinary representation in international competitions and events including travel exhibitions (WTM, ITB, MITT), food & beverage trade shows (Sial, Anuga).
In its fourth year, the Tourism Awards rewarded the best practices of Greek companies and organizations in all sectors of travel, hospitality and leisure and applauded initiatives that encourage innovation and the quality of Greek tourism.
