The Re­gional Au­thor­ity of the South­ern Aegean, the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Kea and the Friends of Kea So­ci­ety are co-or­ga­niz­ing an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence mark­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of two sig­nif­i­cant World War I ship­wrecks, the S/S Bur­di­gala and the HMHS Bri­tan­nic (the Titanic’s sis­ter ship). Both ves­sels were sunk by mines laid by the Ger­man sub­ma­rine U73 in the Kea Chan­nel. The con­fer­ence is also in­tended to serve as a com­mem­o­ra­tive event as well as pro­mote the is­land as a lead­ing div­ing and tourist des­ti­na­tion.
