Over 260,000 visitors graced the 82nd TIF, which ended yesterday, renewing its appointment for September 2018.

The 82nd TIF ended in the most impressive way, as the concert given by Sakis Rouvas, dedicated to the ‘ORAMA ELPIDAS’ Association and the Volunteer Bone Marrow Donors, brought together thousands of people of all ages, achieving a record attendance number.

   

More specifically, 263,724 individuals (as compared to 210,081 last year) went through the gates of the Fair from 9 to 17 September and visited the largest TIF of the last decade.

The enormous number of visitors were met by 1,500 exhibitors and the highly successful participation of China, which set the bar high for the institution of the Honoured Country with 167 exhibition participations and over 400 individuals as part of the official delegation.

   

An intensely business-oriented character and increased internationalisation were the dominant elements of the ‘personality’ of the 82nd TIF.

The individual sections of the Fair covered a broad range of interests, from education, vehicles and energy to beauty, gastronomy and e-gaming, with numerous actions and events.

This year, the 82nd TIF demonstrably supported the ‘ORAMA ELPIDAS’ Association, boosting its work so that no person and no child is at risk, unable to find a compatible transplant.

The Honoured Country at the 83rd TIF of 2018 will be the USA, with the requirements for a highly successful participation already set.

The administration and employees of TIF-Helexpo extend their warmest thanks to the people for their love for the Fair, which is improving every year and laying a solid foundation for the growth of the national exhibition agency.

A host of sponsors and associates supported the 82nd TIF:
