The Kastorian Fur Association (KFA)stand attracted thousands of consumers at the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair this September. Based on the number of visitors and the impeccable organization, this fair was a landmark as it had a more international scope than ever.


As part of its close collaboration with TIF-HELEXPO management since 2016 when the two organizations signed their collaboration memorandum, the Association’s aim at the largest trade fair of south-eastern Europe was to actively promote the 3rd Fur Shopping Festival, which is to take place in Kastoria on 1-3 November, as well as the Greek fur industry in general, to visitors from all over the world.


The Fur Association’s dynamic presence at the TIF was of strategic importance this year as the Honored Country was the USA, a huge fur market. In fact, members of the Association’s management had the opportunity to make contacts with entrepreneurs of the financial super power, focusing on developing trade relations.


Equally significant were the contacts made with members of the Greek political arena. President of the KFA Yannis Korentsidis discussed matters of the fur industry and the development of the Kastoria region with president of the New Democracy Party Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with Minister of Tourism Elena Kountoura, Deputy Minister of Economy and Development Stergios Pitsiorlas, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Yorgos Katrougalos, and former Minister Dimitris Mardas.


In addition, the KFA stand at the 83rd TIF was visited by the new Minister of Rural Development Olympia Teliyoridou, former Alternate Minister of Finance Christos Staikouras, Member of the European Parliament for New Democracy Thodoris Zagorakis, New Democracy MP for Kastoria Maria Antoniou, Vice-President of the Hellenic-Chinese Chamber of Commerce Nikos Yannidis, as well as other personages from the political and business world.


With the closing of the 83rd TIF, the KFA’s Board of Directors feels the need to congratulate and publicly voice its gratitude to the TIF-HELEXPO management, which once again organized an impeccable international event, establishing Greek entrepreneurs as a global players!
