Looking to attract US business participation in the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), while paving the ground for future collaborations between Greek and American enterprises, Greece’s exhibition organizer TIF-Helexpo visited Los Angeles and San Francisco last week.

The United States will be the honored country at the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair to be held on September 8-16, and TIF organizers are visiting several states making contacts ahead of the significant business and economy event.

The issue was also discussed last year during a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump during Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ visit to Washington.

In Los Angeles, TIF-Helexpo’s president, Tasos Tzikas and CEO, Kyriakos Pozrikidis met with representatives from chemicals, technology, energy and IT companies as well as with members of the American Hellenic Council of California.

The TIF-Helexpo delegation also visited San Francisco, where officials met with the Specialty Food Association (SFA) and signed a Memorandum of Understanding concerning the promotion of Greek products on the US market.

Meanwhile, a mission of US food businesses will be attending the 83rd TIF, while a number of Greek food industries will be participating in the Summer Fancy Food Show on June 30-July 2 in New York, where Greece is the honored country.
