“SILVER TOURISM 55 plus: Driver for the extension of the tourism season”


Who are the "silver" tourists? What are the different motivations of these tourist groups? What are they looking for when traveling? Tourism trends for silver tourists follow the same standards as for other tourists? What know-how is required to enable the country's tourism industry to properly satisfy this age class of travelers in order to prolong the tourist season?

The conference is co-organized by TIF-HELEXPO and the Hellenic Hoteliers Federation and will be held on November 10th at the conference center "N.
