As part of the promotional effort of the greek Health and Wellness Tourism, the Hellenic Association of Municipalities with Thermal Springs inaugurated recently its collaboration with the Federation of Associations of Travel & Tourist Agencies (FedHATTA) and the Hellenic Association of Travel & Tourist Agencies (HATTA). The FedHATTA and HATTA realize these days a long-held vision: a touristic period of twelve months for our country with the program “TWELVE”. With this program all travel agents will be able to create travel packages that will include the curative springs of the country. The program “TWELVE” is also oriented to the travelers around the globe, who are interested in travelling to our country, and want to be informed for all the activities – visits they can have, based on their interests. The program “TWELVE” covers the presentation of Greece as a tourist destination, through 12 themes (religious tourism, cultural, sightseeing, business tourism, acquaintance with the country’s tradition, presentation of nature, etc.).
The Association’s President. Mr. Giannis Karagiannis has expressed and supported at every opportunity the view that the key to the extension of the touristic period is Health Tourism – and hence the curative springs. Therefore, he asks every operator of curative springs – either municipal or public or private – to participate in the program by sending to the FedHATTA, the necessary information:
–Name /Title of the Curative Spring
-Region (accessibility, public transport, highways, nearby airports and ports)
-Photographs in high resolution
-information about any element of touristic interest that exist in the surrounding area (monuments, attractions, hotels, restaurants, hiking trails, alternative tourism activities, etc.)
DATA ARE TO BE SENT TO THE EMAIL: email@example.com UNTIL THE 31ST OF JANUARY 2016
Afterwards, officials of the two associations will ensure that the information gathered will be used for the program “TWELVE” and for the website of the Hellenic Association of Municipalities with Thermal Springs www.thermalsprings.gr, whose visits continue to increase.
At your disposal for anything that you may need.
With warm regards,
The Secretary – General of the Hellenic Association of Municipalities with Thermal Springs
