Latest News | 02 - 09 - 2021
The Municipality of Ioannina participated in the "Tour Natur 2021- Caravan Salon" exhibition that takes place every year in Dusseldorf, Germany. This particular exhibition is one of the largest related to alternative tourism.
The Municipality of Ioannina participated in the Epirus Region stand and had the opportunity to promote our region as an ideal four-season destination.
In all the meetings held by the Deputy Mayor of Tourism, Giorgos Lolis, it was pointed out that Ioannina is a metropolitan center that offers quick and safe access to all of Epirus.
The visitor has the opportunity to try many different forms of alternative tourism, to get to know the natural environment and the cultural wealth of the region and to enjoy the unique flavors of local products.
The deputy mayor met with the Mayor of Schwerte, Dimitris Axourgos, who is originally from Ioannina, and they mainly talked about the twinning process of the two cities, a topic that had been discussed in a previous meeting between Mr. Axourgos and the Mayor of Ioannina, Moses Elisaf.
At the same time, there was an exchange of views on issues of cooperation in other sectors, such as tourism, culture and education.
Mr. Lolis met with the Counselor for Economic and Commercial Affairs of the Consulate General of Greece in Dusseldorf, Frida Georgiou, from whom the Consulate's contribution to the promotion of Ioannina and the direct air connection of the two regions was requested.
The issue of air connection remains a priority for the Region of Epirus and the Municipality of Ioannita as, in addition to tourist purposes, it can also serve the Epirus diaspora.
It is noted that this is the first participation of the Municipality in an international exhibition after many months of measures due to the pandemic. The messages received by the delegation were particularly optimistic and encouraging from the crowd of visitors.
