Ondeck Events launches new show in association with Olympic Marine

Plans have been announced for a new boating event, the Olympic Yacht Show, to be held October 1-4, 2020, at Marina Sounio located some 75km southeast of Athens city centre. The event is being organised by a joint venture between Ondeck Events, an arm of the Ondeck publishing company, and Olympic Marine SA based at the marina.

The new show will use the renovated Olympic Marine facilities, and the organisers anticipate that it will create significant interest both domestically and international. The Olympic Yacht Show is under the auspices of Minister of Hellenic Ministry of Shipping and Island Policy.

The first edition of the Olympic Yacht Show follows the cancellation of two regular marine leisure events usually held in May, namely the Mediterranean Yacht Show held at Nafplion and the East Med Yacht Show held in Athens. The next edition of the Mediterranean Yacht Show will be held on April 22-25, 2021.

The organisers of the Olympic Yacht Show say: “The objective is to create a productive communication platform for the medium and large yacht categories. The event will cover a full range of yachts including new craft over 14m(46ft).”

“It is the only event in Greece with a clear orientation towards medium and mega yachts and the businesses active in this category,” says a statement from the organisers. “The industry’s leading companies will make their presence felt both on land and at sea in elegant and well-designed exhibition grounds. Equally, a special area has been designed to host the luxury ribs and premium day cruisers, offering visitors the opportunity to do tests at sea.”

“The Olympic Yacht Show is a floating yacht show for the premium yacht category as well as businesses active in this multilevel niche,” says Gerasimos Gerolimatos who heads up Ondeck. “It is the most popular yacht category with a wide scope and a dynamic course both in our country and internationally.” Gerolimatos has a track record of experience with superyachts and associated international events.

The organisers have emphasised that the appropriate health and hygiene regulations will be fully complied with in respect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seemingly the 1st of July marks the day Greece will restart all the tourism operations to welcome travellers from around the world – under 3,000 are currently infected with a very low death rate.
