The news from the Dutch market for the following tourist season is extremely positive. According to the results of the first professional meetings which were held during the largest tourism fair of The Netherlands, “Vakantiebeurs 2017”, which took place in Utrecht from the 10th to the 15th of January, the tourist agents showed a high interest in Greece and they mentioned that bookings have an increase of 50% compared with the bookings of 2016. The fact that more flights were added between Greece and Holland is really helpful for this increase.
During the Tourism Fair, the GNTO office in The Netherlands in cooperation with the Municipality of Kos and the Hoteliers Association of Kos, presented the island as a cycling destination while a special menu, based on the Hippocrates diet, was offered to the visitors of the fair; journalists, bloggers, and Tour Operators
Furthermore, in order to enhance the traffic on the Greek stand, the GNTO office in collaboration with the Region of the Northern Aegean, participated in the “Culinary Route” of the fair, offering ouzo to the visitors.
Last but not least to be mentioned is that Greece was awarded as the destination with the best restaurants by the website Reisgraag.nl, a fact that shows that Dutch people really like the authentic Greek cuisine.
