This year, Posidonia Exhibition broke all records in terms of number of visitors, estimated to be roughly 20,000, according to organisers. More than 1,893 exhibitors, coming from 90 countries all over the world, contributed to set the exhibition, as one of the largest shipping events that the worldwide shipping community anticipates to attend. In one day alone, on June 5, roughly 6,000 people visited the 60,000 square meters of the Metropolitan Expo centre in Spata, near Athens airport, where the exhibition was held.

The success and global appeal of Posidonia 2014 proved, once again that Greece is the homeport of global shipping, which in turn provides the platform for the most important mode of transport for worldwide trade.

Posidonia 2014 ended on a high note last week creating new event records demonstrating the enduring appeal and growing popularity of the world’s biggest, most diverse and prestigious shipping event.
