Great news for Family Goes Out! As a member of Travel Bloggers Greece, Family Goes Out was invited to participate in Greece’s most prestigious hotel trade show, Xenia Exhibition 2017, which took place on November 25-27. Xenia Exhibition caters to the hotel industry, offering vendors in food, furniture, digital tools, energy, automation and construction. And that means some exciting news for you in the upcoming months, as we were able to seek out new partnerships for you in order to bring you a better family-friendly experience here in Greece!
This was the first time Family Goes Out participated in the Exhibition together with Travel Bloggers Greece, and what a success it was! We were able to meet with many owners and managers, from large-scale hotels down to small, family run establishments, and discuss the needs and wishes of families traveling around Greece. Meeting with the smaller, family-run establishments was great as the new generation is now taking over and they are very keen on catering to families and creating family-friendly spaces and activities on their premises. During the three day expo, 24 also met with many hospitality professionals, individual businesses and destination curators in order to discuss further collaborations.
Last but not least, we were very excited to promote the Greek tourism industry on an international level as well as create some upcoming partnerships! So be on the lookout in the upcoming months! We are working on a collaboration with a stroller and kids’ gear company in order to not only bring their products to many of our Family Goes Out partners, but also for Family Goes Out to offer directly to you as part of our Travel Light Service (Renting Baby Gear in Greece)! We also found an amazing playground equipment company that offers safe, nice and fun tools for kids’ play and are also working on partnering with them. I order to present their products to our hotel partners in order to make them more family-friendly for indoor and outdoor activities and more fun for your entire family!
