Travel Bloggers Greece, the first professional travel bloggers network in Greece, welcomed new members at its kickoff event on Sunday at Grecotel Pallas Athena.
The “Travel Bloggers Greece Launch Brunch” attracted professional and aspiring travel bloggers based in Greece, in hopes increasing networking between them to better disseminate upcoming events.
Travel Bloggers Greece (TBG) was recently established to promote the interests of travel bloggers that cover Greece as a travel destination as well as educate about travel blogging, promote authentic travel and increase awareness of travel destinations in the east Mediterranean country. Eligible members include travel, photography, food and culture bloggers.
All of TBG’s members aim to create or already run their own unique blog that has a direct connection with Greece travel and culture. They also commit to TBG’s code of ethics that reflect the highest professional standards in blogging.
“Travel blogging is the next big thing and there’s a need to take it to the next level in Greece which is a top travel destination in the world. Our goal is to heighten the level of awareness about the importance of travel blogging in Greece and we believe that will facilitate positive relationships for both Greece based travel professionals and travel bloggers,” said Elena Sergeeva, co-founder of TBG and founder of the Passion for Greece travel blog.
“Thousands of writers and photographers now travel the world but niche travel blogs are becoming very important, since readers trust sources knowledgeable on a specific subject, and that includes Greece,” said Marissa Tejada, co-founder of TBG and founder of the blog My Greece, My Travels. “TBG reaches out to a growing community of bloggers focused on Greece travel and culture by helping them make local connections and hone their craft.”
The newly renovated Grecotel Pallas Athena, located in central Athens, sponsored the “Travel Bloggers Greece Launch Brunch” at its noted Pallas Athena Restaurant. TBG is currently working with other hotel brands, hospitality professionals and Greek destination representatives to organize hosted travel experiences for TBG members in 2015.
