Inchcape Shipping Congress, Asteras Vouliagmenis
The luxurious hotel complex of Astir Vouliagmeni was chosen to carry out the international congress of the shipping’s-giant Inchkape Shipping Services (ISS) on September 2, 2014. ISS operates as an agent for more than 14,000 vessels of the global shipping field, and is a key player also in Greek maritime environment.
The conference included, among other things, an opening speech of ISS CEO Mr. Claus Hyldager, and another speech by Mr. Chris Whiteside, Acting CEO of ISS. During the conference, delegates had the opportunity to discuss and learn about the state of the global shipping market and the position and prospects of the company.
Closing of the conference followed by a dinner at the restaurant of Astir Vouliagmeni, with its unique aesthetics and acclaimed Greek and international cuisine. It was the best way to close the day with the satisfaction of everyone attended.
The coverage of the ISS Conference was a demanding but extremely interesting experience and it was very pleasant for me to work in a familiar environment, that of sea’s people.
