Spotters – Press 2018

FOR YOUR INFORMATION JUNE 25 (Update #2)  2018 ( First Post March 28 )

The organisers of the Kavala AirSea Show are welcoming all those who wish to attend the event either as a spotter, aka enthusiastic fans of events relevant to aviation, professional photographers, members of pertinent associations etc, or a press member.

A world which stands out for its passion (!) for the art of photography, filming and written speech. It is indeed a generous world which we owe the consistently increasing photo material to. A huge file of photos which create a holistic view of the event thereby contributing to the international awards that we have been awarded and the constant promotion of the show via the awards gained by the very photographers in several contests and exhibitions.

The aforementioned activity is determined, supported and controlled by the administration of Kavala Air/Sea Show Media Operation (KASS Media Ops), with a view to providing as many opportunities as possible to the people of a special world of high requirements and needs.
