Splendid Incoming Services (ASIT), said, “Athens has seen a marked growth in its MICE market from India. The MICE travel
is one of the most potential outbound markets to look out for this year. In the recent past, the MICE trend has been to explore
the cultural heritage of the destinations they visit. They prefer destinations that highlight history, art and culture or offer unique
experiences to indulge in. Greece has the right mix of every ingredient that a time constrained
MICE traveller would seek.
