It is with tremendous pride that AHEPA supports the USA-Thessaloniki International Fair 2018 (USATIF) as a Silver Sponsor, announced Supreme President George E. Loucas. Loucas will attend the Fair from September 7 to 9 and speak to an audience on September 8.
“With the U.S. as the honored country, the Fair is the most important event for U.S.-Greece relations in 2018 and will demonstrate what American companies can offer in innovation and technology to Greece’s marketplace,” Loucas said. “We are pleased to show our support for this critical aspect of the U.S.-Greece relationship.”
In a tweet announcing AHEPA’s sponsorship, USATIF described AHEPA as “one of the cornerstones of the US-Greek multillayered and lasting bonds.” The American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce echoed this sentiment.
