A special wristband that was created for this day was the ticket to the one-of-a-kind experience of the Athens World, offering exlcusive privileges to its holders, who could enjoy unique tastes, walk through the gems of the Greek culture and live the Athens nightlife experience. On the same day, street events were organized such as traditional dances in one of the most upscale streets of Athens and a swing party at the city’s most commercial street, that transmitted not only the city’s heartbeat, but also the message that a weekend is not enough to experience the uniqueness of Athens.

Honored guests on this special day for Athens were world renowned influencers of the global online community, who experienced the countless options of Athens and shared them with their followers all over the world. Coming all the way from Germany, England, Austria, France, Portugal and Spain, influencers spread to million users their enthusiasm for The Athens World, a city that manages to balance harmonically between classic and street art, ancient culture and urban lifestyle, traditional tastes and innovative gastronomy, natural beauty and city life.
