Swedish Travel Agents Get to Know Thessaloniki and Halkidiki

The Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) recently presented the tourism offerings of Thessaloniki and Halkidiki to Swedish travel agents in Göteborg and Stockholm.

The GNTO service in Scandinavia supported – as grand sponsor – two events held earlier in April by Medelhavets Produktion & Events at the Skansen Kronan castle in Göteborg, and the Van Der Nootska Palatset in Stockholm.

Held under the theme “Travel, culture, gastronomy, music”, the events included a presentation of Greece’s destinations, cultural monuments, UNESCO heritage sites and archaeological areas.

Furthermore, the GNTO presented its tourism promotional videos “Greekend” and “All you want is Greece”.

During the events, the head of the GNTO service in Scandinavia Pavlos Mourmas referred to Ryanair’s direct flights  to Thessaloniki, highlighting that they could help create “dynamic” travel packages for Northern Greece.

The event also included a presentation of the book “Ouzeri Tsitsanis” written by journalist Giorgos Skambardonis as well as songs of late Greek rebetiko songwriter and singer Vassilis Tsitsanis.

Furthermore, Thessaloniki’s rich gastronomy was presented by Greek Chef Vladimiros Fountis.

The Stockholm event was attended by Greek Ambassador to Sweden Andreas Fryganas, Cypriot Ambassador Solonas Savvas, Thessaloniki Deputy Mayor Vasilios Moisidis, tourism agents from Trawell Goteborg, Detur Sweden and Don Orient Tours Sweden, and bloggers that specialize in travel and gastronomy.
