After the success of the 2013 Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, the 3rd Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, will be held in Athens, Greece on 26-27 May 2015.
As with the 2nd Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, the conference will consist of specialized sessions on cruising, yachting and coastal shipping. Among the subjects to be addressed in the cruise sessions are industry development and growth strategies in the East Mediterranean, European cruise market growth and demand for the region, itinerary planning, new destination development, innovation in shore excursion programs, port privatization, cruise marketing & sales, new market development and future prospects for regional backyard markets. Yachting sessions will evaluate the potential of organizing top class yachting events in Greece, the adequacy of current international legislation (especially regarding crew welfare), the effects of ILO regulations on the yachting industry, Greece’s current failings (taxation, infrastructure, services, etc.) and necessary solutions to capitalize on its true potential, marina privatization and development prospects, and finally, future market targeting and long term market development. There will also be a special session on coastal shipping, mainly to examine the sector’s current serious difficulties in Greece, evaluate their effect on tourism and address urgent breakthrough solutions.
A main feature of the Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum will again be the enlarged exhibition space. The exhibition will provide the ideal marketing platform for ports & destinations, hotels & resorts, airports, tourist service providers, technical support companies, sector publishers, new technologies, yacht managers & brokers, yacht interiors specialists and marinas. By exhibiting at the Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, investors in the region’s ports and marina infrastructure will be able to promote their business proposition and identify potential partners.
The 2015 Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum will provide a unique platform to evaluate new investment opportunities and meet the leaders of this industry, as Greece, the East Mediterranean and the Black Sea will feature very strongly in the future development of Sea Tourism.
