Mitsotakis: TIF Site Redevelopment Project Is Materializing on Time and under Budget

September 10, 2022

THESSALONIKI – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his confidence that construction schedules of the Thessaloniki International Fair site redevelopment project are being met, and he expressed confidence that the project will be completed under the set budget and on time, speaking during his meeting with the management of Thessaloniki International Fair-HELEXPO on Saturday.

The Premier was speaking ahead of his address at the inauguration ceremony of the 86th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) at 20:00 on Saturday. The 86th TIF is being held on September 10-18 at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition & Congress Center.

“It is really the biggest urban regeneration that could be carried out in the city,” said Mitsotakis, and “it will be an exhibition center which -apart from its technical characteristics- will also have the unique advantage of being located in the center of the city, in contrast to all the other exhibition centers which are located usually outside of – and connect with- host cities.”

Mitsotakis also pointed out that that the state will assist in increasing TIF-Helexpo’s share capital to allocate funds for the preparation of specific studies, as well as for the financial tools that have been agreed with the relevant ministries.

TIF-Helexpo President Tasos Tzikas noted that the opening of the new exhibition center will most likely be held in 2026, and he added that the new conference center will feature some of the most advanced bioclimatic design principles and digital technologies in Europe; it will also ensure a great reduction in energy consumption, he added.

The 86th TIF is hosting more than 1500 exhibitors, and the United Arab Emirates is this year’s honored country.

There will be 19 countries participating at the 86th TIF, including the UAE, the US, Luxembourg, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Armenia, Iran, Italy, Poland, Serbia, Cyprus, Georgia, Romania, India, Nepal, and Egypt.
