Greece will participate as a partner country in the Matka Nordic Travel Fair 2021, the largest travel fair in the Nordic countries, scheduled to take place at the Messukeskus expo center in Helsinki during January 21-24.
“It is an honour for Greece to be the partner country of Matka Nordic Travel Fair in January 2021, so we will be able to kick off a new year of tourism with a bang… Safety, authenticity and the strong identity of our destinations are some of the key motives for millions of tourists to visit Greece next year,” said Dimitris Fragakis, secretary general of the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO).
According to a study by the Association of Finnish Travel Agents (AFTA), Greece was the most popular holiday trip destination for the Finns in 2019.
At the Matka Nordic Travel Fair, Greece will provide a comprehensive overview of its local attractions and rich history including ancient sites, monasteries, and traditional villages.
The country’s diverse nature will also be highlighted with a presentation of its destinations, activities, and the popular Greek cuisine.
In addition, visitors will learn on ways to travel responsibly to Greece, so that local natural environments and communities can host a sustainable number of tourists.
“We are delighted that Greece will be the partner country of Matka Nordic Travel Fair next January. Especially in these challenging times, our partnership with Greece boosts confidence in people’s continued eagerness to travel even after the current international crisis,” said Anna Suominen, sales group manager at the Matka Nordic Travel Fair.
“It is a familiar travel destination to many Finns, and when travel is allowed again, I believe many of us will head to Greece to enjoy its offerings,” she added.
