ATHENS – The year 2022 is bringing Greece more accolades for what could be a record-busting time for tourism after the New Democracy government essentially ended health restrictions during the waning COVID-19 pandemic.
Greece and the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) won four awards at this year’s Travvy Awards at Ft. Lauderdale in Florida, the event seen as the premier showcase for the sector.
The awards recognize the highest standards of excellence in the travel industry and honor travel companies, products, agencies, and destinations for their achievements, noted GTP Headlines in its report.
During the ceremony, where more than 300 awards were given, Greece won three gold achievements as:
- Europe’s Best Cruise Destination
- Europe’s Best Overall Destination
- Best Mediterranean Destination
The GNTO won the silver award as one of Europe’s Best Tourism Boards.
“It is a unique honor to be recognized at the Travvy Awards since these awards are handed out by those who know best: tourism industry professionals,” said US & Canada GNTO Director Konstantinos Harokopos.
The annual Travvy Awards, presented by TravelPulse, which is part of the Northstar Travel Group, saw thousands of votes cast this year.
“The Travvy Awards are voted on by travel advisors, AKA the real influencers in travel,” TravelPulse Executive Editor Eric Bowman said. “It’s an honor to gather together and celebrate with the best of the best in the travel industry,” he added, the site reported. The GNTO was among the sponsors for the 8th event.
