Recently in Pireaus, Greece, several representatives of the Cayman Islands Shipping Registry (CISR), including the CEO (Designate), MACI and Director of CISR, Joel Walton, and Client Relations Manager (Designate), Todd Bice, attended Pireas 2005 - one of the largest shipping events in the world.
The CISR, for the first time in this event's history, was invited to attend and sponsor at the platinum level.
Pireas is a biannually organised event hosted by Hellenic Shipbrokers Association, aimed to bring together more than 2,500 maritime executives including ship owners, charterers, bankers and brokers from all over the world.
Mr. Dimitri Thomas, the CISR's Greek representative and President of Athenian Shipbrokers, was also present as a platinum sponsor.
As part of the three-day period of events, the 2nd Global Shipbrokers' Forum included topics such as harmonizing Western World shipbroking with the Far East, gender discrimination and ethics in shipbroking. A Gala Dinner and the Pireas 2005 Regatta were also a part of the show's agenda.
Mr. Walton commented, "We saw this as a prime opportunity to be part of a first-class quality event and to be highlighted as the only maritime administration among the sponsors, granting us an excellent advertisement vehicle for further endorsing the CISR to the Greek and international shipping industries."
