The 3rd International Hospitality Forum organized by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels (HCH), was launched with an opening statement by the CEO of the NürnbergMesse Group.
Focused on the trends affecting the Tourism and Hotel landscape in Greece, as well as the challenges faced by Greek hoteliers, the 3rd International Ηospitality Forum opened its doors just a short while ago at the C1 conference room of the Metropolitan Expo exhibition center. Organized by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels within the framework of the XENIA 2019 trade show, this year’s Forum started with a short statement by Mr Peter Ottmann, CEO of the NürnbergMesse Group, of which FORUM SA (the XENIA organizing company) is now a part.
Ch. Theocharis (Greek Minister of Tourism), P. Ottmann (CEO of N/M Group), N. Choudalakis (CEO of FORUM SA) and T. Gialouris (V.P. of FORUM SA).
During his speech at the 3rd International Hospitality Forum, Mr Peter Ottmann addressed a full to the brim -by dozens of Greek hotel owners- room.
Mr Ottmann addressed a full to the brim room and talked about the close ties between Forum SA -and NürnbergMesse from now on- and the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels, as well as the importance of Tourism in the Greek economy.
“Greece is to me the land of Hospitality,” he said, while also adding that “XENIA is the place where beats the heart of Greek tourism. XENIA and the International Hospitality Forum make an important contribution to why the Greek tourism industry is so strong.”
In conclusion, Mr Ottmann stated that “we come to Greece as tourists and leave as friends. Is there a better way?”
We couldn’t agree more.
