All stakeholders in the CCIs’ sector who attended the series of 24 seminars in Helia, said they were very happy with the benefits they gained, as they not only gained know-how but had the opportunity to network with other creators at the same or another sector of the creative industries.

The organization of workshops by the Chamber of Helia is a concrete reply to the needs of the local creative and cultural industries, emerged after a survey conducted in 2020 by the Institute of Regional Development – Panteion University. The local creative industries can contribute to the local economic development however, there is a need to strengthen entrepreneurship and extroversion of the local creative and cultural industries in the city of Pyrgos, among others, in order to increase the degree of viability of the existing companies and the possibility of attracting new ones. So, they need to be trained about these topics in order to become more competitive.
