After a long preparatory process, Exporama Crossmedia is ready to launch Exporama Show, The Mediterranean Special Event for Exhibitions, Conferences and Below-the-Line Activities from 8 to 11 December 2006 at Helexpo Palace Exhibition Center in Athens, Greece (www.exporamashow.com).

Exporama Show is the first and only Business-to-Business exhibition in Southeastern Europe that focuses exclusively on the Events Industry and aims at becoming a communication platform for all event professionals. It brings together the suppliers who provide products and services in organizing, hosting, promoting and supporting exhibitions, congresses and corporate events with the end users who look for reliable and innovative solutions for their face-to-face marketing plans.

Exporama Show has already produced a favorable response among the industry professionals, with 150 leading companies having confirmed their participation two months prior to its opening, while approximately 5,000 trade visitors are expected to visit the event.

Exporama Show is supported by a number of important international and Greek organizations, including: IFES-International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services, IAEM-International Association for Exhibition Management, EFAPCO – the European Federation of the Associations of Professional Congress Organizers (its 2nd General Assembly and Annual Congress of EFAPCO will take place alongside Exporama Show, and it will be attended by over 250 European PCOs), TIF – Thessaloniki International Trade Fair SA, the historic exhibition institution in Greece, AGECO-The Association of Greek Exhibition and Conference Organizers, HAPCO – The Hellenic Association of Professional Congress Organizers, Hellenic Institute of Marketing, the oldest institute incorporated in the Hellenic Management Association.
