What’s trending in Greece?

Simone Kohl, Groups and MICE Supervisor for Pacific World Greece, give her insights about one of the most requested destinations for meetings and incentives in the last 12 months.  

Q: What destinations are clients demanding in Greece?
A: Athens still being the most demanded destination but there is a growing interest for second-tier destinations. More and more clients are requesting Thessaloniki for their conferences or their incentive programs. For the Cyclades island the requests for the lovely small island of Paros has increased.

Q: Have you seen any change in the way clients are conceiving meetings and events?  
The clients are demanding more and more all elements of the meeting or incentive to be aligned even with a theme related with the destination (Mamma Mia, Ancient Greek, etc) or with the company brand, vision of strategic goals. All the elements will be chosen according the theme or vision. The events should have a meaning not just for the organizers but to each attendee. 

Q: What experiences are having more success?
 Standard team building or activities are not an option anymore. Guests want to have an experience, to interact with locals and to see authentic products. Besides this, high-end experiences are having great success in Greece. 

Q: Any advice about how to enhance a high-end experience?
Deluxe transportation add a VIP touch to every meeting or incentive. Soon we will operate a very special program. We will organize the transfers from the airport to the resort with helicopters and daily activities in private yachts visiting the small islands around (Spetses and Hydra). At Pacific World Greece, we are in the business of creating personalized experiences according to the client’s interests and program goals too.
