Greece can become a destination and entry gate for Asian travellers, provided it works in a continuous, consistent and methodical manner over the next 3 to 5 years. This was the main conclusion of the International Tourism Conference of the 33rd Philoxenia titled ‘Asian Tourism: Greece as a Destination and as a European Gate’.
The Philoxenia-Hotelia tourism exhibition ‘duo’ once again won the sector's vote of confidence, as it welcomed 20,000 visitors. In fact, this year’s dual event marked a change in the make-up of visitors, with a substantial increase in the number of both professionals from Greece and abroad.

Philoxenia and Hotelia, once again serving as meeting points for the sector from 10 to 12 November at Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre, constitute landmark fairs for Greek tourism.
