Optimism over congress tourism in Thessaloniki

The year 2017 will be an excellent year for congress tourism in Thessaloniki, the general manager of Thessaloniki Convention Bureau Efi Koudeli said in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency’s radio station 104.9 FM.

“It will be a good year,” for tourism in general, Koudeli estimated, as Greece is affected by the international developments which seem to be favourable for Greece.

As regards congress tourism, she explained, profit per visitor is high because when the participants visit a place “they always stay some additional days.”
