Matchmaking event during the 85th edition of the Thessaloniki International Fair
The Federation of Industries of Greece (SBE), in collaboration with the National Exhibition Agency TIF HELEXPO SA, is organizing a Brokerage Event on 7-8 September 2020, during the 85th edition of the Thessaloniki International Fair, which will take place on 5-13 September 2020.
The first Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) was organized almost a century ago in 1926. Over the following decades, TIF has come to be considered as the "mother" of national exhibitions. It is also the largest trade exhibition not only in Greece but in the whole of the Balkan region. In addition, it has built up a solid reputation for hosting various parallel sessions, including international parternariat events, as well as business-to-government features.
With a strong focus on showcasing entrepreneurship and innovation, TIF has consistently worked towards promoting the Greek economy and enhancing foreign partnerships, particularly in the wider region of Southeast Europe. Furthermore, it has been instrumental in creating “incubators” for the development of other internationally-oriented events.
Last year’s TIF gathered 1600 Greek and international exhibitors, and welcomed over 250,000 visitors from Greece and abroad. This year, the 85th TIF expects to equal if not outdo those figures. On the occasion of Germany being this year’s Honoured Country at TIF, the spotlight will be particularly focussed on the participation of one of the most important industrialized and developed countries in the world and Europe’s largest economy. The aim is to present its potential in all aspects of economy, science, and innovation trends, as well as to foster opportunities for partnerships between host exhibitors from Greece and visiting companies from Germany.
In keeping with the latest trend towards digitalization, TIF is also hosting the Digital Greece for the second consecutive year, in order to promote innovative entrepreneurship. This initiative of the Ministry of Digital Governance and TIF HELEXPO, in collaboration with Industry Disruptors - Game Changers, maps the digital Greek ecosystem, presenting start-ups and scale-ups, company structures supporting young entrepreneurs, universities, research centers and funding providers as permanent exhibitors. At the same time, workshops, lectures and discussions will highlight emerging trends and dynamics, as well as opportunities arising in the specific business sector.
The matchmaking event organised by the Federation of Industries of Greece during TIF 2020 is open to companies from all countries and all fields, but is particularly targeted to Greek and German participants from the following sectors:-
- Construction & building materials (particularly for sustainable construction)
- Food & beverages
