The executive director of Posidonia Exhibition Theodore Vokos in an interview referred to the cruise and yachting growth prospects in Greece.


The 3rd Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, that will be held on May 26-27, in Athens, will focus on the economic impact of shipping tourism in Greece, with the participation of more than 800 professionals of the sector.

"The International Shipping Exhibition Posidonia has been established in the cruise and yachting industry. This year, we host the largest delegation of presidents and CEOs of the leading cruise companies worldwide," Vokos underlined.

Asked if they expect more visitors from China, he replied: "This year is the year of Greek-Chinese marine cooperation. In this context, the Chinese embassy in Greece, along with the Ministry of Commerce of Hainan, which is an important tourist destination in China, decided to organize a seminar within the framework of Posidonia to enhance the prospects of cooperation between the Greek tourism operators and the Chinese ones.

Asked on cruise's impact on the economy, Vokos said that "it will be great. According to a Hellenic Chamber of Shipping's report, the cruise and maritime tourism can bring Greece 1 billion euro revenues annually while creating 40,000 new jobs.
