Posidonia 2024: Largest International Shipping Exhibition in Athens Welcomes Global Participants

Posidonia2024 Opening Ceremony

The Posidonia 2024 international shipping exhibition, the largest in its 60-year history, kicked off on Monday in Athens.

This year's event features a remarkable comeback from China, with 180 companies participating—an almost 50 per cent increase from previous years, according to the exhibition organizer.

During the opening ceremony, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis emphasized his support for Greek shipowners "in every aspect of the shipping industry, from the green transition to the safety of ports and shipyards."

Posidonia is the first exhibition in Greece to receive ISO certification as a sustainable event, underscoring the organisers’ commitment to minimising environmental impact and maximising economic benefits for the local economy and businesses.

Posidonia 2024 is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Insular Policy, the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping, and the Union of Greek Shipowners, with the support of the Municipality of Piraeus and the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee.
