Attica, a multidimensional group of short break destinations throughout the year

The Region of Attica is showcased in Holland and Belgium as a multidimensional group of short break destinations throughout the year.

Consistently following through on its Tourism Promotion Strategic Action Plan, the Region of Attica organises a roadshow focusing on the tourism markets of Holland and Belgium, on 10 and 11 December 2018, in cooperation with the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) office in the Netherlands and the Embassy of Greece in Hague.

Specifically, on Monday, 10 December 2018, at 18:00, the Ambassador of Greece in Hague, Mr. Dimitrios Chronopoulos, will welcome at the ambassadorial residence the Executive Regional Councillor for Tourism Promotion, Ms Eleni Dimopoulou, the executives of the Directorate of Tourism, the representatives of the GNTO office in the Netherlands, as well as the invited tourism professionals from Holland.

The presentation to the Dutch tourism market will showcase the unique possibilities for activities, and particularly the alternative forms of Tourism, such as hiking, cycling and sailing, offered throughout Attica. Addressing an audience that loves short breaks, great emphasis will be placed on accessibility, ensured by the direct connections between Athens and Schiphol and Eindhoven airports, as well as the numerous possibilities for island hopping and short day trips to the exciting and yet relatively undiscovered mainland, features that are particularly attractive for the Dutch globetrotters.

After the presentation, hosts and guests will have the chance to exchange views and ideas, laying the foundations of future collaborations.

On Tuesday, 11 December 2018, at 18:00, the Attica Tourism presentation will be delivered to professionals of the Belgian travel market, in Bruges, Belgium. In recent years, Belgian travellers show a strong preference to Attica, being particularly interested in its rich culture, gastronomy, safety and security.

These contacts and presentations are being conducted at a time that is most fitting for effective communication actions and the successful placement of Attica’s tourism products in these markets.
