The report of Barta Róbert 3rd year student on his volunteering experience at the Greek tourism exhibition “Philoxenia” during his ERASMUS+ mobility in Thessaloniki :
From 9 to 11 November 2018, the ‘heart’ of Greek tourism will beat at Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre, where the 34th edition of Philoxenia, the International tourism exhibition by HELEXPO, will attract the interest of the domestic and international tourism industry.
Philoxenia is one of the most significant and longest - running tourism exhibitions for the Greek and Southeastern Tourism Industry and the absolute destination in Greece for all international operators of the tourism sector.
I have participated in this tourism exhibition as a volunteer in the B2B area. Buyers from more than 40 different countries came for the opportunity to find partners and have meetings with local exhibitionists. The other volunteers and I had the task to make sure the meetings take place respecting the timetable and help the buyers when needed.
