From early in the morning the most significant meeting point for the hotel industry in Greece welcomes hoteliers from all over the country.
The leading trade forum for the hotel industry opened its doors today and welcomes decision makers of the hospitality industry. Hoteliers, architects, engineers, f&b managers, decorators, business consultants, etc. are looking among the 500 exhibitors all the products and services they need, whether it concerns the construction and decoration of their business, or they want to upgrade the food and beverage department of their hotel, whether they aim to develop their accommodation, whatever its size, in terms of technology and digital services. As in Xenia they can find countless modern solutions from small units of rooms for rent, to global hotel groups, resorts but also city hotels and of course villas.
Also, from the first moment, the interest of the visitors has been won by the Architect Lab – both for its design and excellent aesthetics as well as for the ideas and proposals that one can find among its exhibitors – the innovative project that is being developed in Hall 2. Architects and decorators in particular are delighted with the excellent proposals they find in terms of design, lighting & sustainability trends.
At the same time, the official opening of the exhibition will be held held at 11:30 by the Minister of Tourism Vassilis Kikilias, with a large number of representatives of the sector’s institutional bodies as well as market executives in attendance.>>
