The Hermes Expo, one of the greatest business networking opportunities for the Greek-American and Philhellenic business communities is going virtual.

The first-ever Virtual Hermes Expo platform takes place Sept. 28 to Oct. 1, 2020. The expo continues to highlight “Trade, Communications, Culture, and Gastronomy.”

Once again, Hermes Expo will feature businesses and organizations that will be exhibiting from across the U.S., Canada, and Greece.

This virtual experience replaces the annual four-day in-person Hermes Expo that has previously been held in several U.S. cities and is taking place out of concern for the health and well-being of its guests and participants in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But just because we’re online doesn’t mean the networking and business opportunities aren’t still there.

The four-day virtual Expo still gives you an opportunity to ‘Explore, Discover, Connect, and Participate,’ all from the comfort of your home or office.

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

The opportunities at the virtual Hermes Expo network are endless: impactful networking, high profile people, building relationships, reconnecting with old friends and current clients, insightful panel discussions, pitching of ideas and so much more!

There will be an array of booths on virtual display, ranging from food distributors, food manufacturers, food wholesalers, energy providers, banking and finance solutions, consumer goods, law services, medical tourism, investment opportunities, restaurant equipment, think tanks, educational services, importers/exporters, Jewelry items, real estate, Greek wines and Greek food.

You’ll be able to visit exhibitors online and learn about their products and services. You will also be able to chat live with exhibitors and sponsors.
