US travel agents choose Greece, again

US tourists are increasingly interested in Greek destinations and contacts between Greek and US travel agents are on the rise. As a result, 2019 is the second year in a row that the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) has decided to recommend Greece to its members as an ideal destination for US travelers.

Following the ASTA Destination Expo conference that took place in Athens in April 2018, organized by the Federation of Hellenic Travel and Tourism Agents (FedHATTA) and which had a strong impact on sales by US tour operators of trips to Greece, the Dodecanese island of Rhodes is hosting a second ASTA, the International Showcase, an event reserved for select destinations which started on Sunday and is set to run through Thursday.

The unfolding International Showcase on Rhodes is organized by FedHATTA and the Regional Authority of the Southern Aegean, and signals the very first time in ASTA’s history that it has chosen the same country two years straight as the destination for the ASTA members to get acquainted with.
