Swingers’ party in Greek island of Crete canceled due to coronavirusA total of 400 to 500 people visit Greece for their “meeting” every year

The President of Tourist and Travel Agencies in Crete Michalis Vlatakis stated that there is great concern in the local hotel industry about the state of the economy due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have an overwhelming halt to the flow of new bookings. It was bad in our previous communication, now, unfortunately, it has become worse. The cancellations also started for the coming season and we have had cancellations for the first two months so far”, he said, speaking to Mega Channel.

“To give a lighter tone to this depressing situation, the swingers gathering that has been taking place in early May in Crete in recent years, who were 400-500 people, has been canceled”, he added.
