Kyvernitis Travel Group has launched “The Greek Shipping Podcast” series, an initiative designed to “give voice” to the people of shipping and convey stories of shipping, seamanship and the sea to its listeners.
The monthly podcast was created out of Kyvernitis’ love for travel and Greek shipping.
The sixth episode of the “The Greek Shipping Podcast” is online and features Theodoros Vokos, the Managing Director of Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., a leading organiser of trade fairs in Greece.
A few words about Theodoros Vokos
Theodoros Vokos joined Posidonia Exhibitions S.A. in 2003 and is the company’s Managing Director since 2017. He is responsible for the international shipping exhibition Posidonia and launched the Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum in 2011, which has become the most important event for the Sea Tourism industry in the East Med region.
In the sixth episode of “The Greek Shipping Podcast”, Theodoros Vokos describes how the Posidonia exhibition has evolved to what it is today, from the 1980s, and also gives an overview of this year’s edition, which is set to reach the maximum number of attendees, since the trade show first launched.
Moreover, he discusses the perspective of the shipping industry development in Greece, the unchanged love of the Greek shipowners for everything Greek, their admission to wanting Greece to be the most advanced shipowner country, while keeping the Greek character of the shipping management and offering jobs to as many Greeks as possible.
As he highlights: “Timing” remains a key feature for the shipowners, which one would dare to say is passed on from generation to generation, making Greeks open new successful paths in the global Shipping Industry.
In regards to the future of Posidonia, Theodoros Vokos predicts that in the coming years, the uniqueness of Posidonia will become “the Totem of shipping exhibitions”.
The episodes of “The Greek Shipping Podcast” are available on Spotify, Apple & Google podcasts, as well as on the specially designed website: https://marketing.kyvernitis.gr/the-greek-shipping-podcast.
