85th Thessaloniki International Fair to Be Held on Sept. 11-19

THESSALONIKI — The 85th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) will be held on September 11-19, honoring Greece instead of France, the organizers announced on Thursday.

The coronavirus pandemic cannot allow for the participation of France as the honored country, it was added.

Emphasis this year will be paid to new technologies and upgrades in digital services, entrepreneurship, agri-food production, but also to sustainable development and innovation.

Special attention will be paid to Greece's bicenntennial of its Greek Revolution (1821), examining the country's past, present and future roles.

TIF 2021 is expected to be one of the first large-scale expos to be held after the reopening of activities suspended during the coronavirus pandemic.
