The video is part of a broader tourism campaign and features audiovisual material from international and regional sports events hosted by the South Aegean islands during the last four years.
“Due to the unprecedented conditions caused by COVID-19, our new advertising campaign this year focuses on our main tourism product – the sea & sun. However, the Region of South Aegean also looks to promote alternative forms of tourism, extend the season and enrich its tourism product. Our every step, every action is part of a broader plan to keep our islands at the center of attention,” South Aegean Governor George Hatzimarkos said.
During the last four years the Region has hosted small and major, amateur and professional sports events including football, basketball, beach volley, Tae Kwon Do, windsurfing, climbing, tennis, car racing, sailing and many more.
In 2019, the South Aegean islands hosted a total of 21 international championships and sports meetings, 27 panhellenic championships and 67 regional tournaments.
These events also brought a large number of athletes and visitors to the islands and promoted the region worldwide through the media.
