As part of its ongoing strategy to diversify its tourism product, the Attica Region participated in this year’s Bridal Expo 2019 promoting wedding tourism options.
Aiming to stimulate wedding and honeymoon tourism and attract visitors to the region, regional authorities presented Attica destinations and wedding options during the Bridal Expo held together with Athens Bridal Fashion Week.
More than 100 businesses and 30 designers participated in this year’s show, which attracted hundreds of visitors who had the chance to learn more about the region’s wedding offerings including the wide choice of Byzantine chapels in Attica and on nearby islands, the vast array of archaeological sites and monuments in and around Athens, as well as romantic seaside locations ideal for wedding photo shoots, and of course, the warm Greek hospitality and the fine weather and all year round.
The Region of Attica also includes the Saronic islands including Hydra, Poros, Spetses, and Agistri providing easy access and ideal wedding settings combined with an extensive choice of luxury hotels and event facilities including vineyards and estates, as well as access to internationally acclaimed Greek wedding gown and jewelry designers.
Also presented at the Bridal Expo were Greece-based wedding planners and caterers offering top-notch services.
Attica regional authorities are aiming to attract incoming wedding tourism from the US, Russia, Lebanon, Arab countries, India as well as Diaspora Greeks. In this direction, the region aims in the upcoming period to invite wedding planners from across the globe to promote Attica’s offerings and products.
“The wedding tourism market is very dynamic as it involves many different businesses. At the same time, it indirectly provides incentives to manufactures and Greek designers and could eventually become a highly successful and outward-looking collaborative network,” said Eleni Dimopoulou, executive regional councilor for tourism.
