Key Tourism Figures 2019: Aris Marinis, President, General Panhellenic Federation of Tourism Enterprises
Greece has been established as a top-level travel destination in the world’s conscience
As the current tourism season concludes, it is the appropriate time for the Greek tourism industry to reconsider and reinvent its strategy.
Greece has been established as a top- level travel destination in the world’s conscience due to last years’ efforts and campaigns, which have led to a satisfying figure in tourist arrivals for 2019.
...it should become a main priority -both for the public and the private sector- to upgrade services while keeping prices at a reasonable level.
However, what is most important is the spending capacity of these visitors as they seem to have spent more than any previous year for the hospitality services they enjoyed.
On that account it should become a main priority –both for the public and the private sector- to upgrade services while keeping prices at a reasonable level. In addition, to promote the country as a unique, all-senses destination where travelers can live like locals, as at home.
It is on our hands to enhance this feeling of freedom and well-being to all our visitors, by offering top class hospitality and once in a life time cultural, naturalistic, athletic and religious experiences all year round, all over the country. And to communicate it in all possible ways, through all possible channels.
From this point of view, GEPOET as the secondary collective body of Travel Agencies & Coaches of the country would like to welcome all exhibitors, buyers and visitors of the World Travel Market 2019 and of Philoxenia 2019, 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 are ready to provide you with high creditability, inspired travel services around the country in a unique way.
