The Greek Shipping Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that two more prestigious maritime organisations have agreed to sponsor the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Dinner 2016.
The event, that will take place in Athens during the evening of Monday 4 April 2016 at Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall, will celebrate Greek shipping and pay tribute to historic personalities who have helped to shape the industry, including the latest Inductees to the Hall of Fame who will be unveiled during the evening. A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Greek children’s charity, Hellenic Hope.
The American Hellenic Hull Insurance Company has now confirmed its support as Dinner Sponsor of the occasion.
