Recognizing the importance of the tourism industry, Interiors from Greece curates the innovative architecture and decoration event “DPoint Spaces”, which is held in parallel with the Hotelia & Philoxenia exhibitions. This is an initiative aimed at highlighting different thematic modules related to each professional who is directly and indirectly involved with tourism - hoteliers, architects, decorators, technical companies etc.

In this context, this year's event was given a special focus on the wellness sector, which is undoubtedly a vital part of tourism – according also to the researches by the Global Wellness Institute. Thus, ASPASIA TAKA - Architects Creative Lab designed the “Spa Concept” which was constructed by well-established companies. The aim of this project - which was successfully achieved - was to offer architects, tourism professionals, tour operators, decorators, therapists and technical companies the opportunity to meet all new trends regarding the construction and the operation of spa and well-being spaces.

Very significant was the contribution of EF-ZIN's "art of living well" - the development, management and business consultancy firm - which has taken care of the seminars which were carried out by tourism industry specialists and provided really useful and targeted information.

It is worth to mentioning that the Philoxenia-Hotelia "twin" exhibition attracted more than 20.000 visitors, while the visitors' mix was overturned, with a noticeable increase at the percentage of the professionals from both Greece and abroad. During the three-days event (10-12 November), more than 4.000 appointments were held between exhibitors and major tour operators from 36 target markets for Greece, which paved the way for future partnerships.
