The European Maritime Day is celebrated annually in Europe on May 20. This annual platform welcomes Europe's growing maritime community joining policy makers to discuss, debate and exchange best practices. The seas and oceans, and the opportunities they offer, are at the heart of the discussions for the public.
This year, the European Maritime Day 2015 Conference will be hosted by Piraeus, Greece's largest port from May 28 to 31 and will include high-level sessions and stakeholder workshops with delegates coming from European and other countries.
What’s more, as part of the events, the city of Piraeus will host for the first time a "Days of the Sea" celebration on May 30 and 31, with activities and events for tourists and visitors highlighting the city's offerings. They will include tours, concerts, performances, dancing, food sampling, film screenings and other activities.
