Scheduled to take place at the Kissamos esplanade, the festival will host tourism enterprises, environment protection organizations and businesses operating in the Chania prefecture that will present their products and services.
Furthermore, the Chania Chamber will run a series of B2B sessions for visitors and the festival’s participating companies on Saturday August 19, in a bid to facilitate networking and future collaborations.
Businesses interested in participating in the event, can send an application to this email: firstname.lastname@example.org, until August 13.
In addition, the Green Tourism Festival will host the presentation of travel packages created in the context of the “Development of a Transnational Network for the Promotion of Sustainable Coastal Tourism – CROSS-COASTAL-NET “program funded by European, Greek and Cypriot funds.
The program which saw the collaboration of Chania and Pafos, aimed to create a platform that would highlight overtourism’s negative effects on environmentally sensitive coastal areas and propose sustainable solutions.
