June 5, 2000 (Piraeus, Greece) - MarineTalk further expands its global presence as the Internet portal for marine professionals by participating in the Posidonia 2000 event June 5-9 in Piraeus, Greece.
The MarineTalk Internet portal was created 2 years ago to provide marine companies with an exclusive marine web based platform where they would be able to display their products and services and maintain that presence in front of thousands of potential clients who use the Internet in the course of doing business. MarineTalk continues its philosophy to develop a vibrant community of marine professionals from around the globe and enable fast access to the most interesting developments in the industry, with focused search for products, services, personnel, specialized information, etc. This fundamental MarineTalk philosophy that the community must come before E-commerce has already been proven successful.
MarineTalk's community includes companies and professionals working in the shipbuilding and repair, manufacturing and equipment supply sector, technical and procurement personnel in shipyards, design and consulting engineers, marine surveyors, ship operational personnel and technical ship managers, shipping and marine insurance professionals, research and education personnel, etc.
Access to MarineTalk's huge database, the Weekly Newsletter and other facilities such as basic company listings are provided Free. For companies that wish a greater exposure MarineTalk offers two commercial products. These are:

Danek Kilinski, president said, "MarineTalk is rapidly gaining wider and wider acceptance as an exclusive Internet portal for marine professionals. Its professional profile and effectiveness have been acknowledged which results in continuous increase of visitors and subscriptions to the Newsletter that has now reached over 12,000. The marine industry has been slower to accept the Internet and the market benefits it can provide. It takes time to educate management on the benefits of the Internet, but once understood they become enthusiastic supporters of our world StoreFront program. The Internet is your silent super sales force out there on a global basis working 24 hours per day 7 days a week. This program is very cost effective and complements other publicity and corporate communication plans”.
