ISSA members from some 50 countries – many of them in Europe – will be meeting and networking at the 62nd ISSA Convention and Trade Show, to be held in Athens on 10th and 11th November.
Being staged at the Hotel Divani Caravel in Athens, it will be handily situated for downtown attractions and the famous Greek maritime cluster.
Some self-examination will take place with Convention’s theme confirmed as ‘Enhancing the ship supplier’s image’.
Although ISSA members have been punching well above their weight in recent times, it is felt that there is still some room for polishing the image of ship supply as a core sector of the maritime industry and trumpeting the importance of the industry to the ship owning community.
Already, the thriving Greek maritime community has pledged its support for ISSA’s premier event with several high-powered purchasers and owners promising not only to attend but to take a full and active part in Plenary.
Styled very much of the moment, Plenary will have a series of informative, educational and entertaining presentations each of which concludes with what is hoped will be a lively Q & A session.
Modestly priced and in an enviable location, ISSA 62 promises to be a sell-out. Early bird discount on the delegate fee is still available but not for long so please book as soon as possible via the ISSA website at www.shipsupply.org
The OCEAN Board Meeting is scheduled to take place on Sunday 12th November and the Working Group on Customs & Taxation will meet the day before Convention as usual.
