City Contact

City Contact is a leading provider of integrated services in the tourism industry. It was established in 1996 with the aim of covering the information needs of both the sector’s professionals and tourists, with dependability and consistency.

City Contact is the only company in Greece that offers an organized distribution of informative tourist brochures (Guides, Maps, and other printed matter) across a network of hundreds of delivery points (hotels, museums, Airbnb, restaurants, etc.) with exclusive cooperation agreements in the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. They place Info Stands at these points so that tourists can elect, on their own initiative, which brochures and maps they wish to be informed by. In 2019, more than 4.3 million tourists chose and used their publications.  They operate the largest organized brochure display network in Greece, providing distribution at over 600 visitor locations all over the country.

Distribution Territory and Channels

They have installed more than 300 Info Stands® in hotels, museums, and restaurants and distribute brochures on a regular basis and under special agreements through hotel receptions and concierges, congresses, travel agencies, embassies, and other popular areas for tourists.

They have stands in Athens, Thessaloniki, Crete Island (Chania & Heraklion), Mykonos Island, Santorini Island, Rhodes Island, Corfu Island and Chalkidiki.

Products and Services

What kind of brochures are distributed through the Info Stands®?

All business enterprises, such as tourist sites, museums, theme parks, exhibitions, restaurants, cinemas, shows, shopping malls, traditional products, and retail stores, aiming to advertise and promote services and products to visitors, can have their brochures distributed by City Contact.

How is the distribution organized?

The Info Stands® are regularly renewed by their experienced staff. The advertiser can determine the duration of time they want the brochures to be displayed on the Info Stands® as well as the number of Info Stands® in each area.

Why advertise through the Info Stand®?

Tourists, especially while visiting a foreign country, are difficult to contact through the traditional media. By placing brochures on the Info Stand® they can be presented, effectively and simply, with information about any business or product. Tourists expect free information to be handed out to them upon their arrival at any destination.
