Seven members of the Hellenic Association of Mobile Applications Companies (HAMAC) recently presented their products and services at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) Barcelona and the ITB Berlin 2019 in Germany, in collaboration with the Greek Tourism Ministry and the Greek National Tourism Organization.
Aiming to promote Greek tourism technology startups to the international travel market, HAMAC, represents a vibrant sector of more than 80 high-tech companies whose activities include the development of added value mobile applications, and the provision of services for telecommunication providers, innovative communication, content and application services.
During ITB Berlin 2019, the following members of HAMAC had the opportunity to present their activities to Greek Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura:
- Noveltech, which operates the Hotel ToolBox application for the operation and communication of hotels,
- Liknoss, which offers solutions for the passenger shipping sector,

During the event, Kountoura said that the companies’ promotion to the international market should become a priority, while she presented the ministry’s actions for the promotion of digital services to the tourism industry.
During the last few years, HAMAC has been promoting enterprises that offer services and solutions for the tourism industry based on mobile, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud technologies, among others.
