AMCHAM: Harnessing the Power of Innovation and Creativity
From: 08.09.2018 To: 16.09.2018 Share
It is with our great pleasure to inform you that we are at the final stage of the preparation of the US presence in the upcoming Thessaloniki International Fair 2018 (Sep 8-16), where the United States will be the HONORED COUNTRY. Under the broader theme of “Harnessing the Power of Innovation and Creativity”, USATIF2018 will showcase American technology, entrepreneurship and innovation to an elite audience in Southeast Europe of Government and Political Leaders, Decision-Makers and Influencers, Entrepreneurs, C-Suite Executives and 300.000 visitors.
Our Chamber has put great efforts and resources in the organization of this project which is considered of a dominant importance not only for the relations between US and Greece, but for the expansion of regional cooperation in trade and investments of US with the whole region in the SE Europe. We are expecting a high profile delegation from US to visit the Fair leaded by the US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross
We feel that we are in a position to claim on behalf of the Chamber that the goals we had set from the beginning of this endeavor have exceeded our most optimistic expectations. Our Chamber has managed to design a quite engaging and interactive Pavilion with the participation of a large number of US companies and organizations which will participate and exhibit their latest innovative products.
In addition to the exhibition part, we have created a very interesting parallel program of pertinent and focused events which will take place throughout the duration of the Fair either within the US Pavilion (at the Stage) or in other venues within the Expo Center. Seminars, workshops, debates, special presentations and lectures, open discussions, boot camps, hackathons, musical performances and others will be held aiming to enrich the American presence in the TIF 2018. Some of those are exclusive events but the majority are open to the public. If you want to register to those events please use the official webpage of the events: http://usatif2018.gr/parallel-events-activities/
At this point we want to acknowledge that this endeavor is the result of the incredible efforts of the staff and members of the Board of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and our fruitful collaboration with our external partners, the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Athens and the U.S. Consulate in Thessaloniki, TIF’s executives, U.S. and Greek government representatives, and the participating companies and organizations. We have all contributed to this unique event that will no doubt excite everyone who visits this year’s TIF.
In closing, we would welcome you to come to beautiful Thessaloniki, visit the Fair, tour the US pavilion, network with the exhibitor companies and participate in any of the event you might be interested in. We feel confident you will enjoy a unique experience focused on innovation, business, and technology.
