Into its fifth decade, Posidonia this year set new records for exhibitor floor space, size of conference programme and number of visitors.

In total, 1.825 exhibiting companies from 90 countries and territories and 19 national pavilions welcomed 22.366 visitors from over 95 countries to their stands.

“We always strive to make the best even better by constantly reinventing the overall offering of Posidonia seeking to further improve and, if possible, perfect the experience on and off the main venue of the exhibition,” said Theodore Vokos, Executive Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A, the organisers of the event.

“Through the years we have made significant enhancements to the main event and the parallel social and sporting networking programme, as we endeavor to keep Posidonia fresh, relevant, contemporary, responsive to exhibitors’ and visitors’ demands. But, above all, we strive to maintain its authoritative aura in line with its reputation as the most prestigious, agenda-setting maritime event that is always ahead of developments.”

The next Posidonia exhibition is already well into planning – it will open its doors on June 4th 2018, and occupy the full 45,000 sqm of the Athens Metropolitan Expo.
