Hellenic-Italian Chamber holds Money Show in Thessaloniki, April 12-14

The 30th Money Show of the Hellenic-Italian Chamber of Thessaloniki will run at a central hotel in the city from April 12 to 14, with a focus on promoting innovation, new sectors and new markets.

Chamber President Christos Sarantopoulos said that the event did not always provide enough revenue to cover expenses, but participation has been rising and this year – which will include almost the entire production sector of Thessaloniki and businesses in the city – will be the first where receipts will cover expenses.

The sectors the event will highlight are the following: technologies, agriculture and agrifoods, energy and the environment, infrastructure, tourism and culture, financing tools for businesses, and Thessaloniki’s future growth options as a metropolitan area.

Organisers said they expected over 10,000 participants in this year’s Money Show.

Speaking at a press conference on the event, Thessaloniki Mayor Yiannis Boutaris said that Cosenza in Calabria and the Hellenic-Italian Chamber had signed a memorandum of collaboration to boost gastronomy tourism.

Events scheduled by the Greek Foreign Ministry also aim at encouraging religious tourism, which Boutaris said will focus on landmarks of the Apostle Paul’s tour of the city.
