The destination of Halkidiki, located in northern Greece, recently hosted 150 Indian beauty queens for the Haut Monde Mrs India Worldwide 2019 beauty pageant.
Some of India’s most beautiful married women visited Halkidiki during October 10-20, to participate in the contest and tour some of the destination’s most significant sites of interest.
Following the beauty contest, northern Greece is expected to “travel” all over India, as the photos and videos of the beauty contestants’ tours in Halkidiki will be included in a documentary production that will be seen by millions of viewers in the country.

The “Mrs India 2019” final took place at the Porto Carras Grand Resort during a lavish ceremony on October 18, in the presence of regional and local authorities, senior executives of the Greek hospitality industry and media representatives.
“We feel proud that we have managed to bring the Mrs India Worldwide 2019 beauty pageant to Greece for a second consecutive year,” said Katerina Mousbeh, CEO of Mideast Travel Worldwide, the event’s Official International Travel Sponsor.
It was also the first time that the beauty contest’s final was held outside India.

For the successful coordination of the beauty pageant in northern Greece, Mideast collaborated with Christina Karamichou, CEO of “The Concierge”, a Greek company offering luxury travel services.
