Echoes from 2018
With increased participation of 16% and especially the interest of tourism professionals, as the total number of business visitors increased by 36% compared to last year, the country’s most important tourist exhibition “Philoxenia-Hotelia” was completed 9-11 November at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Center . The number of Greek business visitors was up by 38% this year and by foreigners by 21%.
The two exhibitions were at the heart of the tourist-hotel industry, hosting 615 exhibitors from 22 countries and visitors from 47 countries, and they became the springboard for new partnerships and trade agreements, through the approximately 4,000 business meetings that took place between exhibitors 200 foreign hosted buyers.
The Philoxenia International Tourism Fair, reinforced by its international character this time, was this year’s “barometer” for the coming season. It has shown through the International Conference an important issue that can become a catalyst for the extension of the tourist season, that of tourism for travelers over 55 years old. The International Congress, co-organized by TIF-Helexpo and the Pan-Hellenic Federation of Hoteliers and carried out with the support of the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) and the European Network for Accessible Tourism (ENAT), attracted great interest Conference Center “Nikolaos Germanos” to be packed in all sessions.
