Posidonia 2024 took place between 3rd-7th of June 2024, in Athens, Greece.

Posidonia brings the whole shipping world to its exhibitors. The international shipping community attends in strength with national pavilions and thousands of visitors. But Posidonia is also home to the owners of the world’s largest merchant fleet. Greece, a top ship- owning nation, operating 21% of global and 59% of European capacity, represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity for shipbuilders and for suppliers of marine equipment, information technology and the whole spectrum of marine services. The upgrading of the Greek fleet has kept its worth above $150bn. At the same time Greek owners have been ordering new vessels in the shipyards of Japan, China and South Korea. Oil tankers and LNG and LPG carriers are all under construction, along with dry bulk carriers and container ships.

Posidonia takes its exhibitors to the heart of this community with exclusive access to owners and management keen to engage with suppliers and services for their shipping operations and fleet renewal. Technical and operations executives from all over the world will be keen to engage with exhibitors – not only to discuss solutions but to make decisions. Posidonia is known for the business done in its exhibition halls. No other shipping event is attended by as many Greek and international shipowners and shipping executives.

Posidonia week also included an extended conference, seminars and technical workshops programme. The popular programme of main conference sessions, focused workshops and seminars were further developed at Posidonia 2024. Chaired by industry leaders, there were lively discussion and debate on issues, challenges and opportunities facing the industry. Posidonia 2024 again hosted the Tradewinds Shipowners Forum at the Posidonia Conference Hall on Tuesday 4 June.
