John Kapralos
Director of Sales & Marketing / Molisana Imports, Canada
“I’ve traveled to all the food shows around the world, and although this is a smaller and a fairly new show, I was very impressed! I think this show provides a huge array of products with the Mediterranean diet in mind, and I think it has been a tremendous experience. The show will continue to grow, Athens is a hub and attracts a lot of visitors from all over the region, from the Balkans to the Middle East, and everyone should visit Athens and FOOD EXPO GREECE and OENOTELIA.”

Erika Gallon
Sales & Marketing Manager / Amorosso Fine Wines, Hong Kong
“The exhibition is very well organized. I found wines I have never tried before, really interesting, with a nice story behind. I think, that it would be useful to visit again FOOD EXPO GREECE and OENOTELIA in order to discover new products!”

Peter A. Dalton
Importer – Exporter / Dalton Food & Wine, Ireland
“This was my first contact with Greek food and wine. Ireland has an interest in Greek products, but given that Greek population is quite small there, Irish people need to learn more about Greek products to appreciate them. OENOTELIA has been a great experience”.

John Varvaressos
CEO / Greek Boys Choice Foods, USA
“I’m a second generation Greek from Florida. Ι’m satisfied with my visit in Food Expo and OENOTELIA. I was looking from wines to olive oil, olives and general produce products. Our company specializes in the Greek market and Greek products. The contacts I’ve made here, some will lead to deals and more specifically, I found some different honeys and many other products. All I was looking for it’s here!”

Haris Antoniou
“Our participation in this exhibition proved that this is the first time I saw so much interest from professionals of the foodservice industry, sales representatives, regional distributors, retailers as well as international attendees. In the respect that the only reason that a business decides to take part in an exhibition is to attract new customers and partners to sell its products to, I think FOOD EXPO wholly fulfilled its task. But this year’s exhibition was absolutely successful in all respects. I am very satisfied with the contacts I established. Even if only 20% of them bear fruit, I will have attained over 40 new Greek and international clients”.

Spyros Lafazanis
“I really liked the organization of OENOTELIA and the B2B meetings system. Truly, from what I saw this year, OENOTELIA can develop into a great trade show and a hub for Greek and international wine and spirits professionals. It can even be marvelously combined with the traditional fine food products featured in FOOD EXPO.”
