Deree at the Delphi Economic Forum 2024

For the ninth consecutive year, the Office of Public Affairs secured the attendance of 48 Deree students at the Delphi Economic Forum IX, held April 10-13, 2024. The students enjoyed the unique opportunity to attend a plethora of Forum sessions, get exposed to new developments in a variety of sectors, hear innovative ideas and network with high-level speakers and global leaders.

Once again, Deree was represented in multiple discussions: The Director of the ACG Institute of Global Affairs, Professor Constantinos Filis, coordinated a number of panels on international relations, peace, and defense, and Professor Kelly Gerakoudi, a panel for energy regulations in shipping.

It was my first time attending the Delphi Economic Forum, and I have to admit it was a remarkable and positively overwhelming experience. From attending pioneering and interesting panels to connecting with like-minded individuals, DEF IX was truly a unique opportunity for growth.
