Key Tourism Figures 2017: Aris Marinis, Secretary General General Panhellenic Federation of Tourism Enterprises
As the Greek economy turns into weak but positive growth rates after many years of painful recession, the Greek tourism sector has emerged stronger than ever before.
Greece’s reputation as a top travel destination, not only for unforgettable holidays, but also for business trips, conferences, weddings and other social events, has seen a major increase and this can only be attributed to the substantial efforts of each and every one of us in the travel industry.
Greece, a paradise of unique climate, landscapes, safe cities and friendly hard-working and respectful people attracts the interest of the global tourism industry, with impressive direct investments from key players, major TO’s and global hotel chains.
For 2018 we expect to keep up at this pace through our national advertising campaign, concerning the perception of Greece as a 365-day tourism destination, and achieve a new record in arrivals and earnings.
GEPOET, the secondary collective body of Travel Agencies and Coaches of the country, would like to welcome all exhibitors, buyers and visitors of the World Travel Market 2017 and Philoxenia 2017, wishing you all the best.
You are all most kindly invited to do business in Greece by cooperating with the members of our Federation, which can provide you with top quality travel services around the country in a unique way.
