The 8th Travel Trade Athens is bringing the tourism market back to Athens, inviting buyers and suppliers to Athens to meet in-person during the annual event taking place from 9 to 10 May 2022.
Travel Trade Athens is the signature B2B marketing event of the City of Athens promoting the city’s transformation into a tourism and meetings destination. Key players from the international tourism industry and top-notch local suppliers from Athens and the surrounding region will have the opportunity to meet and pursue new business opportunities during the two-day event.
The event is organized by the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA) through This is Athens-Convention & Visitors Bureau, in cooperation with the European Tour Operators Association (ETOA).
„Our partnerships have been extremely important over the last several years, and we are looking forward to creating more in 2022.“
In addition to business meetings, Travel Trade Athens offers attending suppliers a half day of educational workshops created in collaboration with major international organizations. The workshops were introduced by This is Athens in 2021 to promote knowledge exchange and best practices to the local tourism industry.
Selected attending buyers and invited press will enjoy a complete Hosted Buyer Program that includes air travel to and from Athens, accommodation in a 5-star hotel, transfers, thematic FAM trips, meals and social events, networking opportunities, as well as a pre-arranged set of online B2B meetings.
“Tourism has an important role in the sustainable development of Athens and the city is already making big investments. We’ve launched vital collaborations with international organizations such as the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO). Our partnerships have been extremely important over the last several years, and we are looking forward to creating more in 2022.” noted Vagelis Vlachos, CEO of ADDMA.
