Greek Panorama: Mediterranean Tourism in New York City

A tourism fair with an exclusive focus on Greece is to take place in May in one of Manhattan's most iconic locations.


It’s iconic, it’s busy and it’s in the heart of New York. Now it will also feature some of the best Greece has to offer.

On May 12-13, New York’s Grand Central Terminal will play host to the highly anticipated Greek Panorama tourism exhibition. The building is one of Manhattan’s most historic landmarks and handles a staggering 750,000 commuters and visitors per day.

The event represents the first large-scale promotion of Greece’s tourist destinations, culture and gastronomy in New York and is being organized by Hellas North American Events Inc., a subsidiary of North Events Ltd., the successful organizer of two previous such travel fairs focusing exclusively on Greece: the Grekland Panorama in Stockholm in 2014 and the Grecka Panorama in Poland in 2015.

Greek Panorama is now taking aim at one of the world’s most attractive markets, seeking to capitalize on one of the city’s busiest spots. The exhibition will be located in the East Side of the Vanderbilt Hall; adjacent to the Main Concourse and once the main waiting room of the station, the space is now used for special exhibitions.

The exhibition will be open free-of-charge to visitors and professionals wanting to acquaint themselves with Greek tourist destinations as well as with the country’s gastronomy, art, culture, luxury services, real estate, shopping, yachting and cruises, airlines and more.

On May 11, a day before the exhibition’s general opening, a special B2B (business to business) event will be held at a centrally located hotel venue, open exclusively to the Greek delegation and to US companies and tourism representatives seeking to network and cultivate future partnerships. On the evening of the same day, professionals and exhibitors will have the opportunity to attend an official opening dinner with guest representatives from the Greek and the American tourism market, as well as numerous media representatives and other participants.
