The third Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum will take place in Athens in May 2015.
In a statement issued last week, the organizers did not give the specific dates in May 2015, instead emphasis that the biennial event has 'managed to quickly establish itself as a leading business platform for global cruising and yachting industry decision makers and governments, tourism bodies, regulators and ports & destinations'.
Theodore Vokos, Project Director at Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., which is also the organizer of the Posidonia Shipping Exhibition, commented: "We are excited with the success of this addition to our event portfolio."
This year's Sea Tourism Forum, which took place at the Athens Megaron in May, attracted over 650 delegates and 32 exhibitors from 25 countries.
That is some way short of Posidonia itself - the undisputed heavyweight champion of maritime events, which has a forty-year history and in 2012 boasted more than 1,870 exhibitors and 18,500 buyers from 92 countries - but it still a very good beginning for young specialist conference.
According to Vokos: “The quality of the Forum’s keynote speakers and panelists was tremendous as they represented the world’s biggest cruise and yachting operators and associations. The issues they raised and discussed were extremely topical to many direct or indirect stakeholders of the sea tourism industry in this region and this alone made for one great event that challenged, provoked and inspired.”
