Posidonia is the world’s most prestigious biennial international shipping exhibition and one of the longest standing maritime trade events, as it first took place in 1969, almost 50 years ago.
As the home of Greek shipping, Posidonia is the gateway to the owners of the largest merchant fleet in the world. Carrying a legacy of over 3000 years, Greece is the top shipowning nation by value, at $99.82 (USD BN) and operates 20% of the global and 50% of the European capacity.
But Posidonia is more than an exhibition, the Posidonia week is host to thought-provoking conferences, seminars, workshops and media roundtables, which are organised by companies and organisations from around the globe and are set to frame the future of the shipping industry. And let's not forget the Posidonia Games, a popular part of the Posidonia business and social mix, bringing the athlete out of shipping professionals.
Posidonia 2018 was held from June 4 – 8 at the Athens Metropolitan Expo. and it was this year yet again a success! A total of 2,009 exhibitors from 92 countries and territories participated and around 23,500 visitors made their appearance.
Posidonia is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Insular Policy, the Union of Greek Shipowners and the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping and with the support of the Municipality of Piraeus and the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee.
