The Virtual Luxury and Gastronomy Tourism Workshop in Benelux, organized by Tourism Media & Events has entered its final phase. B2B meetings have already been scheduled between the Greek participating tourism businesses, destinations, food export companies, and Benelux travel agents, and F&B buyers.
The interest in Greek tourism is extremely high for the touristic 2022, as shown in the high number of participations. Dozens of retailers and importers also confirm this high interest in Greek tourism, as they are more than willing to get in touch with Greek companies in the food and beverage sector, which promote Greek tourism through gastronomy.
The workshop, which has adapted to the new reality and will take place online through a leading, specially designed digital platform, aims to make Greece a top high-end touristic, gastronomic destination on the world map.
The event takes place under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Rural Development and Food, the Embassy of Greece in Luxembourg, the Intercultural Group for UNESCO, and the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad and Public Diplomacy.
The main Sponsor of the event is the Greek National Tourism Organization.
The Honored Tourist Region will be the Region of Crete, while the Honored Gastronomic Region will be the Region of Attica.
Sponsors of the event are the Region of Western Greece, the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” and “Greek Breakfast”, while the Official Air Sponsor will be “Aegean Airlines”.
More than 490 Business to Business (B2B) meetings between Greek institutions and companies have already been planned for the workshop with Belgian and Dutch professionals.
98 local travel agents and tour operators, 29 potential importers of Greek products, and distinguished media participate on the part of the Benelux market.
The Greek Luxury Tourism & Gastronomy Workshops are addressed to tourism companies and destinations that are interested in sealing partnerships and promoting their services and products around luxury tourism.
At the same time, they are addressed to export companies that want to penetrate or even strengthen their presence in key markets in Europe.
