The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame is pleased to announce details of its seventh major event which will take place in Athens on the evening of Monday 8 April 2019 at Megaron – the Athens Concert Hall.

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Dinner 2019 will celebrate Greek shipping and pay tribute to historic personalities who have helped to shape the industry.

This prestigious gala dinner event will include an exciting programme of content, including the unveiling of the latest Inductees to the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame. The 2018 Inductees will join 28 ‘Greats’ already inducted into the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame.

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame is pleased to continue its support of Hellenic Hope and a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to this children’s charity, focused on helping children in Greece at risk from the crisis.

We are extremely grateful for the support of a number of leading organisations and companies that are already confirmed as sponsors of the 2019 Induction Ceremony, including ABS, IRI – The Marshall Islands Registry and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. as Co-Lead Sponsors of the event.

Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO comments:

“ABS appreciates and values the Greek shipping community’s deep level of innovation and outstanding contributions. The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame recognizes the incredible industry figures whose entrepreneurial spirits inspire a global industry and ABS salutes all the Inductees.”

Theo Xenakoudis, Director – Worldwide Business Operations & Managing Director Greece, International Registries Inc. comments:

“The innovation and achievements of the Greek shipping community are to be celebrated. A young, green, Greek controlled fleet is responsible for moving a large proportion of global trade and continues to move the world’s cargo safely and efficiently. International Registries, Inc (IRI) and the Marshall Islands Registry are proud to support Greek shipping and look forward to an evening celebrating Greek success.”

Wang Qi, Chairman of Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding, comments:

“The spirit of shipping is the spirit of conquering, developing and going on an adventure.  Shipping enables mankind to exchange commodities, share and spread our history and culture and expand our global friendships.  All of these ideals are inherent in the mission of the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame, allowing all of us to better understand where we are from and where we are heading to.

“The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame provides SWS with the perfect opportunity to come together with our Greek clients and share with our Hellenic friends the enterprise of the Orient and the excellence of SWS.  We continue to greatly appreciate the contributions of all the Inductees of the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame and we are delighted to continue our support for this wonderful event.”
