January 15, 2023

ATHENS – Greece participated in the first post-pandemic REISELIVSMESSEN 2023 tourism fair, held in Oslo, Norway in early January (6-8/01/2023).

The Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) participated with a 15 sq.m. pavillion and had as its co-exhibitors the Region of Crete-Regional Unit of Chania, the Region of Central Macedonia/Halkidiki and representatives of hotels on the islands of Kos and Rhodes.

A total of 140 exhibitors from all over the world participated, including tourist offices and representatives of state tourism organisations, mainly from countries outside Europe.

The Norwegian market is considered a mature and stable market for Greece. From 2016 to the end of October 2019, it has shown an average increase of 5% (393,286 people in 2016 and 402,547 people in 2019), while in 2022, up to the month of September, 139,320 Norwegians visited Greece.

According to an announcement, the estimates for 2023 are positive, while an increase in arrivals is expected, due to the direct flights of the low-cost airline Flyr Airlines, with flights to Athens and Thessaloniki, but also due to the prospect of the development of new Greek destinations.
