First held in 1926, TIF enjoys significant international appeal. It is held annually in September in Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece and an important administrative, cultural, and business hub of SE Europe. TIF attracts a large number of exhibitors, visitors, professionals and business representatives from across Greece and the neighboring countries.
The theme of the U.S. presence at the Show in 2018 will be “Harnessing Innovation”, intending to showcase American leadership in driving ingenuity and creativity in a variety of business sectors. Since the USA will be the honored country, the participating American companies will attract the interest of the public, government officials, as well as officials from neighboring countries. The Prime Minister of Greece will attend the opening and inaugurate the American Pavilion along with a high-level delegation from the U.S. Government.
