Pantheon of Greek Shipping,Hall of Fame
Athens April 27, 2015.
On Monday, April 27, 2015 was held at the luxurious Hilton Hotel Athens the first ceremony of Admission and Supper of the Pantheon of Greek Shipping. Around 650 guests from Greece and abroad, enjoyed the reception, which was intended to confer honors on historical personalities of the Greek Shipping who distinguished themselves for their contribution to the industry for several decades. At the centre of the event was the unveiling of the latest Inductees to the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame – the 2014 Inductees. Τhe latest Inductees joined the 20 ‘Greats’ already inducted into the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame.
Among those present was Mr. Panagiotis Tsakos of Tsakos Columbia Shipmanagement, who watched the events with great interest, and did not miss the opportunity to pull the cell phone and take some photos! Present also were Mr. Nikolaos Tsakos, CEO of Tsakos Energy Navigation Limited and Mr. George Economou, owner of TMS Tankers and member of Cardiff Marine Group.
The guests enjoyed tasty dishes and exotic cocktails, having the chance to discuss things that unite them, such as the developments in the global shipping industry. For me, the opportunity to cover photographically such an important moment for the Greek shipping was really special. Still, I had the great honor and pleasure of meeting influential people in the industry, with a leading role in the domestic and global economy.
