The Island of Patmos Prepares for Return of Tourism

ATHENS – The island of Patmos has presented a two-level marketing plan on tourism this summer. The presentation focused on the preparation of the island in terms of communication and actions that need to be taken for its promotion on six axes.

Particular attention was paid to the message that Patmos will convey, so that the updated "product" includes safety measures to protect against the coronavirus.

It was pointed out that the next goal is twofold and concerns both the promotion in view of the current period and the maintenance of forces to approach the markets with a view to 2021.
