DNA Travel, an alternative tourism agency in Greece, will present its products and services to the international tourism industry during its participation in leading travel fairs in Greece and abroad.
“The opportunities that arise after unfortunate events, such as the Thomas Cook collapse, urge us to be creative, collaborative, competitive,” said DNA Travel founder and CEO Iakovos Sachas.
According to Sachas, the extroversion of Greek enterprises, especially those active in the tourism sector – the driver of the Greek economy – is crucial as the demands of travelers constantly change.
“The travelers’ demands make us seek and create new pioneer and alternative tourism programs… Extroversion, collaboration, innovation and sustainability are key for our future,” he added.
