ROTA was established in 1984 with the aim of organizing better trade exhibitions to what was commonly available at the time; better in the sense that they could be complete through catering to the specific needs of exhibitors in respective market sectors. This initial goal was later complemented with the aim of providing higher quality in conference organizing and advertising services.

Having organized hundreds of exhibitions and events since then, the company has managed to accumulate a broad knowledge base and more so acquire significant expertise, presently quite unique for Greek standards.
