Greek tourism kiosk in New York gets great reviews

Greece is a popular holiday destination for American tourists, according to travel agents and other visitors to the Greek National Tourism Organisation (EOT) kiosk at the New York Times Travel Show in New York City, that took place from February 28 to March 2.

The show was held at the Javits Centre, and is held annually.

It was a great success and a very important exhibit for Greece, the head of EOT's office in the United States, Grigoria Kamaterou, told ANA-MPA. "There was a long line of visitors at the Greek kiosk who wanted information on tourism in Greece. Most knew quite a few things about Greek history and the islands and were looking for the one thing that differentiated Greece from other places they had been to; they knew they could find this difference, this uniqueness, in Greece," she said.

She added, "Greece as a product is outstanding by itself, and the only thing we do is to showcase it."

The Greek kiosk was visited by government officials and travel agents from other show participants, including Greek Consul General in New York George Iliopoulos, Consul Manolis Kambourakis and Press and Communications Officer Nikos Papakonstantinou.
