On Saturday, 1 April 2017, the annual Gala Dinner of our Association took place at the Hotel Grande Bretagne, with the gathering of more than 250 members and friends. Amongst our guests were Mrs. Daifa, Vice Mayor for Culture of Piraeus Municipality, the Ambassador of Panama Mrs. Liakopoulos de Papadikis, Mr. Leontaras, Commodore of the Hellenic Coast Guard, Mr. Plakiotakis, Head of Sector at the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Insular Policy of Nea Dimokratia, Mr. Simantonis President of the Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners Association, Mr. Tsamis, President of the Port Captains Club and Mr. Xiradakis, President of the International Propeller Club, Port of Piraeus.
The room was full and the guests had the opportunity to meet and network in a very friendly atmosphere at the event which started at the foyer with a welcome drink. The President of WISTA Hellas, Angie Hartmann welcomed, on behalf of the Board of Directors, the guests and wished them a lovely and enjoyable evening. It seems that her wish was fully granted, as the guests enjoyed a lovely dinner followed by a lucky raffle draw giving all the opportunity to win. Furthermore, WISTA Hellas, in what has started to become tradition, by way of video presentation, also took guests on a photographic and musical journey of the year in review. The evening went on with guests moving to the musical rhythms on the dance floor until the early morning hours.
The Board wishes to thank all, members and friends, for taking up on the invitation and for contributing to the success of the event.
