On June 23 will take place the interactive part of the event, where important personalities from around the world will express their opinion on the Greek crisis and suggest ways to overcome it starting from Thrace. Politicians, economists, businessmen, journalists and artists will proceed to a democratic dialogue in order to help us realize the situation we are all in and see the opportunities for growth and progress that must be seized.

On June 24 a fashion show will be presented, organized also by the Economic Forum of Thrace. The dresses that will be presented to the show belong to the clothing line owned by the Economic Forum of Thrace under the name «Arsinoe de Thrace – AdT» and are exclusively made ​​of Thracian silk. Since the creations are inspired, yet dedicated to the ancient history of the island and  Soufli, clothes are of a Hellenistic nature. The silk is very light and swirls around the female body, a clear memory of Arsinoe du Thrace (316-270 BC, Queen of Thrace). The Economic Forum of Thrace expresses its admiration to the personality of Arsinoe in the banner of his clothing collection, since it bears the name of the Empress: «AdT».
