The 83rd TIF is connecting countries from all over the world!
The extroversion and dynamism of the Greek economy, growing businesses, international participations, thematic exhibitions and a very rich programme of side events compose the landscape of the 83rd TIF.
This year’s event will be the of the most international character of recent years, with the presence of the USA, as Honoured Country, setting the pace of international participations. The United States bring to the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre and specifically to Pavilion 13, fifty two (52) American business giants, mainly in the tech sector, which will present their newest achievements. From Microsoft, Google, and Hewlett Packard, to Cisco and Coca Cola, the US entrepreneurial presence will be especially dynamic.
Apart from the US presence, however, there is a significant overall number of international participations and pavilion 6 that will welcome them is almost full. The number of international participations has come to 22 this year, as compared to 18 in the previous year, while the exhibition space they will occupy has increased by 40%. In fact, Portugal and Uzbekistan will be participating in the TIF this year for the first time.
It should also be noted that the participation of India is significantly increased and is operating as a precursor for the 84th TIF, at which it will be the honoured country. China is also participating in great numbers, continuing its successful presence from last year, when it held the position of the honoured country.
