On April 24, the 2017 Hermes Expo International took place at its kick-off event at the Russian Tea Room in New York City.
The “Taste of Hellas” event was met with a great turnout, where founder and president Mr. Paul Kotrotsios made the opening remarks, as he greeted his special guest speakers. It was done in conjunction with Mr. Lou Katsos, President of the Eastern Mediterranean Business Cultural Alliance.
Following these five motivational speeches, the participants and members of the media were able to network with each other, and simultaneously enjoy the finest samples of food that the Greek cuisine has to offer. These savory delights included baklava, “keftedakia” or meatballs, as well as olive oils, olives and cheeses.
Overall, this year’s “Taste of Hellas” kick-off event for the Hermes Expo was exceptional. It was well-planned, well-executed and very informative. For the 27th consecutive year, Mr. Kotrotsios and this team of business professionals continue to outdo themselves, and they are the epitome of what Greek businesses have to offer in America. Bravo.
