Bulgaria: Honored country at 8th Athens International Tourism & Culture Expo 2021
Bulgaria will be the Honored Country at the 8th Athens International Tourism & Culture Expo 2021 with the widest participation of many Bulgarian tourism companies.
For the first time, the Bulgarian Ministry of Tourism officially participates with co-exhibitors Municipalities, Organizations and companies such as the Municipality of Bansko, the Association “Festivals in Bulgaria”, the Prevention, Rehabilitation and Recreation EAD, The Castle in Ravadinovo – In Love with the Wind, Rila Travel EOOD, Grand Hotel Bansko and Hotel Regnum – Bansko, etc.
According to the Press Release of the Bulgarian Ministry of Tourism, “the two countries are developing active cooperation in the field of tourism. Greece is the main target market for Bulgaria, and in 2019 it holds the second place in number of tourist visits (over 1,100,000). Given the pandemic and anti-epidemic measures, visits from all markets, including Greece, have declined significantly since early 2020, but are gradually recovering in 2021. Greece continues to be in the top 10 markets with the largest influx of tourists to our country.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition will be held in a hybrid form – on site and online. Through a virtual stand, each online visitor will have the opportunity to make a one-click teleconference meeting with exhibitors.
