he South Aegean Region has announced the launch of a new tourism campaign for the Greek island of Kos.
The new campaign entitled “Kos Made Of Summer” is entirely funded by the South Aegean Region and part of its three-year tourism strategy, which was presented in January in Athens.
The goal of the region’s new strategy is to identify and promote the region’s tourist product through a specially designed and integrated set of actions aimed at target markets.
The new strategy will serve as a communication umbrella for all of the region’s islands. Each island will have the opportunity to promote itself in accordance to its unique features.
The “Kos Made Of Summer” campaign kicks off the region’s new tourism strategy.

The campaign was designed by the regional authorities in collaboration with the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) and Marketing Greece.
