2015 Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum Announced

Extracted from 3rd Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum Confirmed for May 2015 New Conference and Exhibition event catches tailwind with prestigious speakers and strong industry stakeholder presence The third Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum will be held in May 2015 in Athens, the event’s organisers confirmed today, adding 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 from the entire Mediterranean and Black Sea region. “We are excited with the success of this addition to our event portfolio,” said Theodore Vokos, Project Director at Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., who is also the organizer of Posidonia Shipping Exhibition, the world’s most prestigious trade shipping event. Over 650 delegates and 32 exhibitors from 25 countries attended this year’s Forum which was held over a two-day period at the Athens Megaron last month and organisers believe that this is just the beginning, for 2015 the bar has been set even higher. “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,” said Vokos. All participants from both cruise and yachting sectors agreed that Greece has significant competitive advantages with regard to sea tourism, but needs to do more to overcome certain ill conceived policies and regulatory anachronisms that impede development. According to senior speakers at the Posidonia Forum, Greece has the potential of greatly increasing its current share of a European sea tourism pie that amounts to a combined output of over 40 billion euro annually. Although Greece’s recent efforts to improve transparency and simplify bureaucratic procedures are commendable, effective change can only happen through longer-term strategies and better coordination. Infrastructure development and legislative reform aimed at increasing competitiveness in both cruise homeporting and yacht berthing would accelerate sea tourism development in Greece and thus helping boost the country’s economic revival and fight against high unemployment. “We believe that all who attended realized the enormous potential that Sea Tourism presents for the region and what a positive impact it can have on the region’s economies. We are committed to making our next event even more thought-provoking and we are asking all stakeholders to look into the issues raised at the Forum and introduce strategies and measures to help our region reap more benefits from this lucrative sector.” Vokos concluded. The event was lauded by delegates and exhibitors as a resounding success. Significant partnerships were forged during the two days as delegates and exhibitors engaged industry executives and participated at a series of workshops and targeted meetings with the goal of finding mutual synergies.  As Eleftherios Kechagioglou, President at the Hellenic Network Small Islands Network, said: “Thanks to our participation, we are about to close a deal with Seabourn Cruises for two exploratory calls at Hydra this summer. In addition, this coming September and in collaboration with Donomis Cruise Services we will organise a B2B conference for local entrepreneurs focusing on their responsibilities to these sectors and ways they can improve their services in order to experience growth.” Cahya Summaningish, Third Secretary at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, said: “This is our 2nd participation at the Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum. When we first visited the Forum in 2011 we immediately realised the importance of the nature of this institution and hence...
