Fraport Greece organized a Workshop on Tourism in Lesvos, in cooperation with the North Aegean Region
On Fraport Greece’s initiative, a very productive one-day workshop on tourism was held at the Chamber of Lesvos, at the end of November, in the presence of the Governor of the North Aegean Region Mr. Kostas Moutzouris and distinguished representatives from the tourism sector.
The meeting, which was supported by the North Aegean Region, aimed to present to local stakeholders the performance of Mytilene Airport "Odysseas Elytis" during the tourist season of 2023, the particular characteristics of the tourism market of the destination, while special emphasis was placed on the opportunities for further tourism development of the island. Also, the overall challenges facing the tourism sector and the need to address them through a targeted strategy and synergies were presented.
At the same time, the deliverables of the newly established "Strategic Tourism Partnership of Lesvos" were presented by the General Manager of Marketing Greece, Mr. Nikos Diamantopoulos, who emphasized the strategic objectives and the action plan that the Partnership has undertaken so far.
Kostas Moutzouris, Regional Governor of the North Aegean, said: “I am convinced that development policy requires vision, commitment, solid foundations and strong partnerships. It is in this light that we proceeded with the partnership of the North Aegean Region with Marketing Greece, Fraport Greece and Aegean Airlines with a vision and commitment to the tourism development of Lesvos. Today's event held in Mytilene on the initiative of Fraport Greece was a complete success, as it presented the positive development and the qualitative characteristics of the tourist traffic of Lesvos, as well as the results of the partnership to date, informing the local stakeholders of the island”.
From his part, George Vilos, General Director of Development of Fraport Greece, stated: "The successful conference held in Mytilene with the support and cooperation of the North Aegean Region, gave us the opportunity to present the latest positive developments in terms of traffic trends at "Odysseas Elytis" airport, as well as a series of data regarding the trends and challenges in the tourism sector that we are all called upon to face together. In this context, I consider the establishment of the "Lesvos Tourism Strategic Partnership" an extremely important step, where together with the North Aegean Region, Marketing Greece and Aegean Airlines, we promote the destination on the basis of a strategic plan and targeted actions. Finally, I take this opportunity to thank the Regional Governor of the North Aegean, Mr. Kostas Moutzouris for the excellent cooperation and the practical support of the synergies, aiming at the tourism development of Lesvos".
