Mr Panagiotis Kakafikas, Chairman of the Board of the market welcomes WUWM members to the city.
“We hope to be successful in ensuring all participants enjoy and benefit from their stay in our city” he said.
Thessaloniki is Greece’s second major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre, and a major transportation hub for the rest of south east Europe, its commercial port is also of great importance for Greece and the south eastern European hinterland. The city is renowned for its festivals, events and vibrant cultural life in general, and is considered to be Greece’s cultural capital.
The theme of this conference is “Markets: The Platform for Logistical Excellence”. Discussions will focus on challenges and opportunities offered in the financing of markets. In addition, new means of innovating market management will be proposed.
