All eyes on Athens...
ISSA convention brings the world of shipsupply to the EU
Greece was selected for 2017 to host the 62nd International Convention & Conference of International Ship Suppliers & Services Association (ISSA) on 10-11 November 2017 in Athens at DIVANI HOTEL, expecting to attract members from 2,000 ISSA ship supplies companies in 95 countries.
The President of Hellenic Ship suppliers & Exporters Association Mr. Nikolaos Mavrikos proposed, supported and eventually succeeded in persuading ISSA, which represents 2,000 ship suppliers worldwide, that Greece, Athens and Piraeus, which will host the 62nd International Convention & Conference, highlight the history and future prospects of Ship Suppliers in general, while at the same time to provide an opportunity for a more comprehensive visit (from a tourist and culture perspective) for foreign participants. The acceptance of the Greek side's proposal by ISSA confirms that ship supplies are a relationship business been indissolubly linked to Greece and the Mediterranean seas for 5,000 years.
This International Convention & Conference attempts to signal the exit from the economic crisis, particularly by exploiting its prospects as a shipping and transit trade center. At the same time, it contributes decisively to the promotion of Greece, Athens and Piraeus as business, tourist and conference destinations, of unparalleled cultural value, high quality hospitality services and undoubted climatic advantages.
