First Official Presentation of the Island of Crete, Greece, in Mumbai

Recognising the dynamism and influence of the Mumbai travel market, a senior delegation from Crete, including the island’s Commissioner of Tourism, Mr. Michailis Vamiedakis, are visiting Mumbai to unveil the island’s diversity, unique selling points and cultural qualities at an exclusive corporate seminar.

Crete is the largest island in Greece, offering unparalleled diversity. The destination appeals to an array of travellers, from families seeking ‘sun, sea and sand’, history/archaeology enthusiasts seeking cultural charm, along with wellness and gastronomy fanatics where good food, relaxation and rejuvenation are key. It is fair to say, Crete offers a unique and memorable experience, suited to even the most discerning traveller.

The authentic island, having enjoyed over 40 years of tourism development, still remains true to its heritage and traditional roots. Crete’s appeal becomes apparent by its strength in hosting 30% of all 5* beds in Greece, and a staggering 40% of visitors being repeat guests.

All attendees of the seminar had the chance to discover the island’s unique attributes, uncover how Crete has become an idyllic stop in a traveller’s European tour and the perfect retreat in a Grecian getaway.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to visit India. We have been overwhelmed with the response that we have received from the travel trade. We look forward to be back soon and welcome Indian guests to the magnificent Island of Crete” -Mr Michalis Vamiedakis, Commissioner of Tourism for the Island of Crete, Greece.

The delegation is honored to be visiting Mumbai to introduce the rich diversity of Crete to industry professionals.
