Tourism Salon inBarcelona

(ANA-MPA)--Greece won the top prize at the SITC (Salon Internacional de Turismo de Cataluna) International Tourism and Leisure Show in Barcelona, Spain, as the Greek pavilion emerged in first place from among 75 countries participating either with Travel Bureaus or private enterprises.

The Greek pavilion won first prize for its architectural aesthetics, organization, operation and service to the public, while Greece was praised by the chairman of the trade exhibition's organizer FIRA and the president of the Association of Catalonian Tourism Journalists as the "jewel" of the Mediterranean due to its "exceptional tourism contribution."

This is the first such award for Greece in its 20 years of participation in the Barcelona fair, resulting in the SITC board inviting Greece to participate as the "honored country" in the 2008 fair.
