Coming up on Wednesday, experts in the tourism industry will meet under the auspice of the DIALOGUES of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), for discussing the impact of the COVID-19 in tourism via webcast.
Given the blow the industry in Greece has suffered because of the pandemic, the Dialogue of the SNF will be a forum for open debate about how the industry must meet the new challenges presented by the crisis. The meeting, scheduled for 18:30 on June 10, will present new data from the world stage, and provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to share and to glean insight for the restart of tourism.
The positive performance of Greece in dealing with the crisis is encouraging, however, this year the bet of tourism has complex health, economic, and diplomatic ramifications. At the same time, the international tourism industry is affected by the upcoming changes and challenges emerging at multiple levels. This
