In the online presentation, the advantages of modern Athens were analysed, with emphasis on its rich cultural heritage, excellent hotel infrastructure and award-winning gastronomy.

With a series of important initiatives for Athens, such as the upcoming Travel Trade Athens event in April, the city's participation in the Global Sustainable Tourism Council, claiming major international conferences, attracting investment, implementing a series of advertising campaigns and partnerships with large private entities for the promotion of the city, Athens is methodically preparing for the next day in tourism. Our goal is for the city to gradually return to the upward trajectory which it had before the pandemic," the CEO of EATA, Vangelis Vlachos, said.
