Celebrating its 25th year, Hermes Expo International, the premier business networking trade show & exhibition conference, will resume its annual expo in Philadelphia on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at Best Western Plus Concordville Hotel. Remaining true to its mission to create networking opportunities for business professionals, the expo will feature unique platforms for companies to showcase their products and services and connect with potential customers from the United States and Europe.
“For the past quarter century, the Expo’s purpose and reason for being has been to connect people and businesses,” said president of Hermes Expo, Paul Kotrotsios. “That is why we take care to create an atmosphere and environment that makes it easy to network, explore partnerships and discover new opportunities.”
For the past 25 years, Hermes Expo has been hosting events in New York, Chicago, Atlantic City and Philadelphia. The expo started out serving the Greek-American community but has grown well beyond that attracting various ethnicities and businesses with an invaluable networking platform that bridges the gap between Greece and America through an open market and exchange atmosphere fostering the flow of creative ideas, bargaining, marketing, selling and buying.
“Helping others form business alliances and partnerships in today’s unpredictable and uncertain economic environment is of paramount necessity. Over the years, we are pleased to be able to point to many examples where, through The Hermes Expo, long-lasting and profitable business relationships began,” said Kotrotsios.
This year, Hermes Expo plans to expand upon the number of vendors displaying and showcasing products and services to include a wide variety of industries such as, food service, distributors, manufacturers, travel & tourism, telecommunications, banking and finance, construction, government and municipalities, non-profits, new technology and more. Additionally, attendees may anticipate the continuation of the Theodoros Spyropoulos seminar series, which began last year, and provides an opportunity to hear from leading business and political leaders on issues important to the Greek community.
Hermes Expo attendees can expect to establish new leads, display their products and services, launch or promote new concepts, advertise their business and brand, learn about trends affecting their business, attend professional development seminars, discover technologies, products and services to help grow their business, network and share unique experiences with other business professionals.
“As we pass this milestone and look ahead, we continue to look for ways to enable, facilitate and explore new ways and possibilities to promote Greek products and services in the United States,” said Kotrotsios.
This year’s full day schedule will include TGS educational seminars, exposition, luncheon, business and young professional’s conference, reception and awards dinner gala.
