Greece..targeting the Gulf markets

Emirates to back second Greek travel road show in Dubai

DUBAI, January 14, 2015

Dubai-based Emirates will support the second Greek Deluxe Travel Roadshow to be held in Dubai, UAE, next month.

For the second year in a row, a select delegation of some of the most luxurious hotels, resorts and tourism companies from Greece, will meet with the UAE’s key travel agents, tour operators and trade and consumer media in Dubai to promote tourism to Greece.

The event will be held on February 25 at the JW Marriott in Dubai.

“Emirates has been serving Greece from the UAE since 1996. With our daily flights to Athens, we are supporting the Greek tourism industry by enabling tourists from new source markets to experience Greece,” said Badr Abbas, vice-president commercial, UAE and Oman. 

The road show event will be split into two sessions: The morning session will feature a presentation of the Greek deluxe travel product, under the title: “Paint your dreams in the rich colours of the Mediterranean on a luxurious holiday experience in Greece”, as well as overviews from some of the most popular Greek deluxe destinations. The afternoon session will be devoted to pre-scheduled B2B meetings.

Ioannis Kofinis, Rollerdeck Associates managing partner and roadshow co-organiser, said: “We are delighted to be returning to Dubai, following last year’s very successful inaugural event. The second Greek Deluxe Travel Roadshow aims at increasing the awareness of Greece as a deluxe travel destination in the UAE, by further educating and training local trade professionals about the unique Greek deluxe travel offering that ensures luxury and comfort at every turn to give visitors a holiday to fit their own specific needs, as well as providing the basis for business to business cooperation between participating Greek and UAE tourism companies.”

There were more than 35,000 visitors to Greece from the UAE in 2013, with 2014 preliminary figures showing a further boost in arrivals. With Emirates daily flights to Greece, a further increase in tourism is expected from the UAE to Greece in 2015.  – TradeArabia News Service
