Santorini Voted the Best Island in Europe
Distinctions for Greece at the Global Travel Awards
Three new distinctions in the USA once again bring Greece and Santorini to the forefront of the global tourism market, despite the international tourism recession caused by the pandemic.
On December 14 and in an online event of the Global Traveler Awards of FX Express 2020, Greece was named for the first time a favorite tourist destination internationally, by the readers of the online magazine trazeetravel.com, the so-called “Trazees”.
At the same time it received the second place of preference in the category Best Wedding Destination, after Tahiti and before the Cook Islands.
In the same event, Santorini was distinguished for the 7th time in a row as the best island in Europe and was honored with the Best Island in Europe award of the Leisure Lifestyle Awards.
As stated by the General Secretary of EOT (Hellenic Tourism Organisation), Dimitris Fraggakis, the new awards for our country, this time from the United States of America, are another confirmation of the high position of preference that Greece holds as a destination abroad. However, it is also an encouraging sign, in view of 2021, a year in which the recovery of Greek tourism will gradually begin, according to Mr. Fraggakis. In an extremely competitive environment, our country will show its comparative advantages in international markets. Especially the USA is a very important market for our country over time, but also especially in view of the new season, EOT is already elaborating a projection plan with the spearhead of the Organization’s office in the USA which is strengthened and takes a more active role. I want to thank the organizers of the awards and the international public who honored Greece once again with their trust, Mr. Fraggakis underlines.
As it became known by the organizing company, the results of the competition will be published in the December issue of Global Traveler and will be posted on the websites: globaltravelerusa.com, trazeetravel.com webfamily.com. The EOT Service in the USA has already received the award of the online magazine Trazee Travel.
