Induction Ceremony & Dinner 2019

Athens - 8 April 2019

Greek shipping’s most prestigious annual dinner celebrates Greek shipping and pays tribute to the historic personalities who have helped to shape the industry.

In addition to the 28 Inductees already celebrated on our website, two further greats of Greek shipping history were inducted on the evening of Monday 8 April 2019.

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Dinner 2019 took place at Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall. More than 600 leading members of the Greek shipping community and their international partners attended to enjoy a unique programme of content and to learn the identities of the two latest Inductees.

A portion of proceeds from the event again went to Greek children’s charity Hellenic Hope, the Hall of Fame’s Charity Partner.

The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame’s collaboration with Hellenic Hope began in 2014 and supports its work with NGOs in Greece across a range of projects designed to maximise children’s welfare and education.
