It was a wonderful evening on October 20 at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, New Jersey, as the Hermes Expo International celebrated its 30th anniversary. Almost 300 people gathered at this year’s Hermes Expo, and the event, as a whole, was well-received.
The Hermes Expo is a distinct networking platform that brings together businesses and professionals from various backgrounds and industries looking to expand their networks in the Greek-American and American marketplace. The Hermes Expo sponsors included Grecian Delight, Kronos World Cuisine, Investors Bank, and SigmaPharm Laboratories.

“Celebrating 30 years of the Hermes Expo is a great milestone for myself, my team, and the business community as well,” Paul Kotrotsios said, founder and president.

“This is our mirror to the American society. All the Greek-Amerian businesses that participate and the Philhellenes interact in one place that became a leading business expo and networking platform for Greek-Americans and Philhellenes,” he explained, and went on to underscore the word “Philhellenes.”

The Hermes Expo focuses on the hospitality industry, an industry that was largely impacted by the pandemic. SBA participated at the Hermes Expo this year with a booth and a seminar in order to help educate business owners on opportunities that are available to them.

This year’s schedule included the following: an Explore Hermes Expo’s Diverse Exhibit Showcase, the opportunity to connect with sponsors and exhibitors, discover new products and services, “Learn From” educational seminars, “Taste of Hellas” Greek Wine Tasting, Awards Dinner & Entertainment, as well as Explore Hermes Expo’s Diverse Exhibit Showcase. “

“The Hermes Expo slogan is commerce, communication, and culture,” Kotrotsios said. “Hermes was the Greek God of trade, communication, and culture. The Hermes Expo has something for everybody, and that’s the message we want to send out.”

The Hermes Expo Business Advisory Committee selected the following individuals that have excelled themselves in their field and their community service efforts, and they all received special “Hermes” Awards: Paul Kalamaras, the CEVP of Investors Bank; Phil Christopher, President, PSEKA & President, American Network Solutions; Greek language educators Eleftheria Oikouta and Meropi Kyriakou; Bill Kolovos, the founder of Kolovos Enterprises; Dr. Zisis Chroneos, the AHEPA Cooley’s Anemia Foundation Researcher; Pan Gregorian John Kallas and Antonis Papamarkos; as well as “Powerjournalist” Markos Papadatos (2021 “Journalist of the Year”).

Dr. & Mrs. Zissis Chroneos.

Mr. Kotrotsios stressed that Dr. Zisis Chroneos has done extensive work for the AHEPA Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, the work that he is doing right now is going to help save the lives of 250,000 Americans that are suffering each year from Cooley’s anemia, and that number is astonishing. Kotrotsios hopes to do more with Dr. Chroneos in the future.
