New Year’s Pita Cutting

17 February 2014

On February 13, 2014 Aegean hosted its annual New Year’s Vassilopita celebration at Teatro Music Hall. In Greece the cutting and sharing of the Vassilopita, a New Year’s cake, is the traditional manner to greet the new year.
The event began with a greeting and speech by Dimitris Melissanidis, who reviewed the positive results of the previous year, and asked all Aegean personnel to keep up their efforts so that the company may continue its leading performance in the global oil market.
Mr. Melissanidis cut the Vassilopita and Melco was the winner of the coin hidden within.
Following a draw, five lucky Aegean employees won one gold British pound each, gifts from the Aegean Shop with a total value of 500 Euros and 500 Euros worth of fuel.
After the cutting of the Vassilopita, Aegean hosted a dinner for the 1,500 employees and guests attending the event, who were entertained until the early hours of the morning in the spectacular atmosphere created by artists Stan, Tamta, Pantelis Pantelides, and Paola.
Politicians, shipowners, businesspeople, journalists, the management of OPAP and AEK, and many celebrities attended the event.
A Happy and Healthy New Year to All!
