Athens Development & Destination Management Agency

The Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA) supports Athens’ ongoing evolution as a contemporary European capital, by designing, planning and implementing a wide range of projects and actions throughout its metropolitan area. ADDMA plays a pivotal role in supporting the City of Athens to deliver its ambitious 10-year strategic plan. This plan, known as The Athens Project, is responding to the challenging economic climate of recent years by focusing on the city’s human capital and the tradeables sector. In parallel, ADDMA implements actions addressing social cohesion and invests in measures promoting urban sustainability. A core team of economists, urban planners, policymakers, tourism and travel trade specialists work across the Agency’s diverse portfolio of activities – from promoting social entrepreneurship and overseeing public works, to organising trade shows and press trips in Athens. The Agency also works with a network of experts, on both an ongoing and ad hoc basis. Moreover, ADDMA is offering support services for actual and potential social enterprises through “Epixeiro Koinonika –Enterprise Socially” program, whose overall goal is to enhance the development of social entrepreneurship ecosystem in the area of Athens and at national level.
