reece stands out as a global attractive 365day destination, friendly and very welcoming, known for the unique authentic experiences and its genuine warm hospitality. It’s the most diverse complex of islands in the Med and Europe with world-famous destinations and

attractions but also hidden gems that we now promote, and a spectacular mainland ideal for travelling year round.

We offer highly-personalized thematic experiences linked to our enormous history and culture, religious and pilgrimage tours, cruises, yachting and diving, and luxury vacation. We promote health and wellness, MICE, city-breaks, outdoor activities and the famous Greek gastronomy, tasty and healthy at the same time, based on locally grown products that are an inseparable part of each destination’s unique identity. We have extended our summer season from April to November, we have strengthened our presence in our traditional but also new markets abroad, and we have enhanced connectivity with more international and regional airports. Greece’s appealingness grows from year to year and through our tourism has achieved consecutive record-breaking results: 26 million international arrivals in 2015 and 28 million in 2016, including cruises, at a 7 per cent yearly growth rate, almost double the global average. 2017 is an exceptional year, with an ongoing growth in international arrivals that are projected to reach 30 million, and an increase in all tourism figures. This dynamic growth has attracted new investments, including more than 265 new projects for 4 and 5 star hotels in the last two years. On the occasion of the WTM and this edition, I invite you to discover all of Greece’s exciting aspects, as a top-of-the-mind destination that can satisfy even its most demanding visitors beyond any expectation throughout the year.

eason 2017 will soon be over Proves to be another successful year for the Greek tourism and economy. According to national statistical data over 30 million tourists visited Greece this year and enjoyed their holidays

with us. Among them, more than 2.3 UK visitors. Greek Cities and islands, high quality services, culture, shopping, business, gastronomy, yachting and sailing are waiting to be discovered. Greece thanks to its weather is the ideal holiday destination throughout the year. Despite the fact that Greece is worldwide known as an ideal summer destination, its mild and warm climate makes it an exceptional destination for all 365 days of the year. Greece is developing• its infrastructures are constantly being renovated, thus remaining a safe an attractive tourist attraction. Greece can offer visitors the vacation they crave for by providing them with a large variety of activities. Having considered all the above, I urge visitors to choose Greece for their holiday, during the entire year.

Yiannis A. Retsos President of the Greek Tourism Confederation


ourism represents a beacon of hope for economic development in Greece and the reinforcement of the nation’s social fabric through job creation. Since the onset of the crisis up until today, tourism has

already begun to make a clear impact on unemployment, contributing to job growth at a steadily increasing rate. The sector has brought development to rural areas and is boosting family earnings. Indicatively, tourism sector employees constitute 30 percent of the total workforce during peak season. With its sights set on the future of Greece’s tourism industry, the Greek Tourism Confederation is undertaking actions that will contribute to the strengthening of local communities, the evolution of tourism’s social footprint and the cultivation of a tourism frame of mind. Within this framework, the confederation is creating a plan for a holistic approach to sustainable development. The aim is to establish a meaningful connection between sectors, for instance agriculture and culture, which can lead to improvements in the quality of the experience that Greece offers via its tourism products and services. SETE’s participation in World Travel Market this year seeks to communicate these efforts, among others, to our international partners and potential visitors to Greece. We intend to do the same in upcoming major international tourism fairs as part of our goal to bolster the country’s standing as a tourism destination throughout the year.

an exciting delicious journey of five senses. The South Aegean Region, leading force of Greek tourism, with its 50 inhabited islands and some of the most powerful tourist brands in the world tourist map, receives 40% of the total tourist flow to Greece annually. Given that tourism is the driving force for the South Aegean economy and the country as a whole, the Region of South Aegean is working in a targeted and methodical way to further highlight the uniqueness of our islands in the global tourist market and optimize the services provided, focusing on the absolute satisfaction of our millions of visitors from their vacation experience. The South Aegean Region’s Strategic Tourism Development Plan, which is already being implemented with great success and with particular emphasis on the development of strategic partnerships, in connection with the state-of-the-art and highly advanced digital platform for the destination promotion, with tens of millions of visitors to date: these are the tools used by the Region to maintain and further enhance its high performance in the tourism sector.


We highlight as many aspects as possible of our multifaceted tourist product.
