days a year. Following the record-breaking results of 26 million visitors in 2015, international arrivals have increased and are projected to exceed 27 million by the end of the year. The continuous growth in our tourism sector is the result of our new tourism policy that we implemented aimed to enrich our tourist product. Through our new policy, we expanded our official tourism season this year from the beginning of April until the end of November, we concluded new strategic deals

We also, accessed and opened new and dynamic source-markets abroad, while we strengthened our presence in our traditional markets. We have placed emphasis in further improving the quality and competitiveness of our tourism product. New large projects are underway in terms of upgrading general and tourism-related infrastructure, such as airports and marinas, and at the same time we encourage new investments for high end facilities and services across the country. On the occasion of the WTM, we address an open invitation to visitors to explore the beauty of our destinations and enjoy the many choices for an unforgettable travel experience beyond their expectations, throughout the year.

isiting Greece is a life-altering experience. The unique culture and the beauty of the spectacular landscapes, alone, are enough to amaze you. Add on the rest

Greece has to offer and prepare yourself for a long-lasting experience that you will remember forever. At least this is what more than 26 million tourists in total and more than 2.3 UK visitors have already disclosed. Green Cities and islands as well as less-known destinations in the mainland, high quality luxury services, culture, sports, shopping, business, food and wine and adventures are waiting to be discovered, embraced by the unique Greek hospitality.

Secretary General Greek National Tourism Organisation, GNTO

Yachting, sailing, maritime tourism, agricultural tourism, cruises, tours in the beautiful mountains of Greece, the gastronomy experience are only a few perks included in our tourism product. Greece is not just another sea and sun destination. It is a safe country with year- round types of holidays on offer. I, therefore, warmheartedly, invite our visitors to indulge in the Authentic Greek experience all year round.

ccording to the national statistical data, the British tourist market has always been one of the largest tourist markets for Greece. Unfortunately for the

Greek tourism, the largest number of British tourists mainly visit the counrty during the summer, opting for the special climate, our unique beaches, the exceptional hospitality infrastructure as well as our famous gastronomy. But Greece, thanks to its weather, the morphology of the soil, its culture and several other possibilities is the ideal holiday destination throughout the year. This is true not only for business conferences but also for many other alternative forms of tourism developing in the country.

President of the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels

Greece is a top international destination, ideal for the elderly while its capital cities with Athens in the spotlight lend themselves for special citybreaks, where shopping, entertainment and multicultural activities are a “unique experience�. At the same time, it is one of the safest destinations globally, which you will adore regardless of the time of the year you visit it.

GDP and employment. Despite the difficulties, we feel confident that we will achieve the international arrival targets we set ourselves and achieve to at least maintain last year’s revenues. According to official data, Brexit did not influence as much as expected this year’s bookings. United Kingdom will maintain its position as one of the top 2 source markets for Greece. At the same time, we will all do our outmost, by offering competitive rates and great early booking discounts to offset the pound to

The State needs to implement a series of actions in order to guaranty the sector’s further development, through maintaining and enhancing its competitiveness. Tourism professionals must forget business as usual, think and act out of the box. We have to be innovative and true to the authenticity of Greece’s tourism product, while offering the best possible services.

or the region of Crete, tourism is one of the leading pillars for the local economy. Before and during the financial crisis, since 2010, it has proved to be a powerful fixture for the financial development of the island. How-

ever, through our strategic planning for further support and empowerment of the field, we make efforts to take advanatage of every opportunity, in favor of the enterpreneurs of the field, those working for tourists enterprises and of course in favor of the entire Cretan community. Through the action plan of the Region of Crete, we take targeted action. We promote the collaboration between individuals and the public sector. We work for the upgrading of the infrastructure, especially in the field of transportation- land, sea and air- and of course through our complete strategy of tourist promotion, we contribute our best both to the qualitative and quantitative upgrading of the tourist product of our region .

Regional Governor of Crete

We are already in the middle of yet another good tourist year. That is a period which is an addition to the already positive indexes for tourism in Crete. But our efforts do not end here. Ours is an ongoing role, with an increasing trend. The Region of Crete will continue to lead the effort which is already counting the first positive results so that we can establish a positive ground for the following years as well. With the extension of the tourist period, the turn towards alternative forms of tourism as well, the coupling of the tourist sector in Crete with the sector of agronutrition and culture we set firm foundations. We ensure all those conditions necessary for this dynamic field of the local economy with its prospect and dynamics to manage to overcome all the obstacles and difficulties, which arise anyway due to the political and financial instability of the country. The power of Crete’s natural beauty, the good climate, the uniqueness of the Cretan hospitality, the value of the Cretan cuisine, the rich cultural and historical background of the Cretan land, the operation of some organised tourist units, the safety and quiet conditions are our powerful tools. These are our indelible pieces that compose a unique identity for tourism in Crete: an identity that attracts millions of tourists to the island every year.

rete island, this year again, has attracted millions of visitors because of its many advantages such as safety, unique natural beauty, history, monu-

ments and its renowned diet, but above all, because of the traditional & authentic hospitality of its inhabitants. The Region of Crete supports in various ways the reinforcement of Tourism, a sector which is of major importance as the island welcomes 20% of the total arrivals of Greece. Therefore an organized development and promotion strategy is pursued, aiming to continuously upgrade the tourism product and the level of services offered. With a clear vision, perseverance, determination and imagination, the Region of Crete ensures a positive operation by converting threats, arising from the global downturn, into opportunities for the island. Since holidays in Crete will always be a dream and a priceless experience to many visitors.
