LANDMARCH WINS A SILVER PRIZE IN THE TOURISM AWARDS 2016 FOR ''RE-BRANDING NEMEA''
This double project concerns the modernization of Nemea's basic urban structure which will play a crucial role to the connection of the city with its new landmark, the new Wine Museum. The relationship of the city with its ancient history and mythology, plus the famous PDO wine production "NEMEA AGIORGITIKO" are the basic lines to lead the rebranding concept of the city, in order to turn it into a new wine destination of high quality.
