The Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) presented the islands of Alonissos and Astypalea to the UK market during a recent event for the promotion of Greece’s destinations that took place in the Greek Ambassador’s residence in London.
The event’s guests included 34 tourism executives, including product, contracting and regional managers, which represented tour operators specializing in the Greek market such as Sunvil, Olympic Holidays, Kuoni and Sailing Holidays; airlines – Aegean Airlines, Sky Express; and professionals active in special tourism forms such as Responsible Travel and Charitable Travel.
The GNTO’s presentation focused on Greece’s diving and sustainable tourism options, diverse tourism products and lesser-known destinations that have the potential to become part of future holiday tourism packages.
The presentation was followed by a networking event during which representatives of Alonissos and Astypalea met with UK tourism professionals and explored potential future collaborations.
