Without any challenge or objection, Allied Shipbroking Inc’s Posidonia do combined the ingredients that make such an event memorable matching this company’s calibre!

Still jet-lagged and with the usual issues surrounding a Greek upon his landing to the fatherland, I set up to go and say congrats to my old mates – from my past life’s profession, that of a ship sale and purchase broker for yet another successful year despite the shipping market’s hiccups; luckily enough,  the event was close to my Athenian residence.

The one kilometre inner road from the main sea-side highway leading to the entrance of the famous Akrotiri restaurant and private club was chock-a-block; never ever I have experienced so many parking side-street areas as well as such a bottleneck… I walked the five hundred or so meters packed with the other invited guests heading to pay their respects to one of the world’s most successful shipbrokers, Allied Shipbroking Inc., as if it was Easter- midnight!

I was greeted by Captain Costas Karademas and the Akrotiri hostesses all in smiles. Everybody was smiling; great dips, special for the occasion drinks and sweets, unique music and a crowd of over a thousand creating one of the best ever events I have encountered during the 45 years that Posidonia events take place! Did I hear you say music? Oh well, a very vibrant South American band, made the difference, ole!

Lastly I have to mention that Allied’s success has to do with the wider family of its partners  and associates who are there supporting their other half, a great advantage! Excellent, true traditional greek maritime values!
